This year’s Øya marks the first event since 2019 after its 2020 and 2021 editions were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Florence + The Machine are also set to headline Mad Cool Festival in Spain this summer, with the band on a line-up that also includes the likes of Metallica, Muse and Kings of Leon.
“Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs. And the villains often got the best numbers,” Florence Welch said in a statement about the song. “So to help create and perform a song for Cruella is the fulfilment of a long held childhood dream.
“I’m so grateful to Nicholas Britell and Disney for allowing me so much creative freedom, and for trusting me with Cruella’s beautiful madness.”
