Pharrell Williams has released a new song from the forthcoming film “Hidden Figures,” which is also featured on the Hidden Figures: The Album soundtrack.
“Hidden Figures” is the untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.
It was a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world.
The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
Pharrell Williams produced the film’s soundtrack, in addition to partnering with longtime collaborator Hans Zimmer as well as Benjamin Wallfisch to compose the film’s score.
The album is available everywhere Friday, December 9.
