Pharrell Williams has his pedipalps all over the soundtrack to The Amazing Spider-Man 2: he co-wrote the score with Hans Zimmer and Johnny Marr, he produced Kendrick Lamar and Alicia Keys’ collaborative song “It’s On Again”, and he contributed new solo music, specifically a track entitled “Here”.
Drawing on a lot of the same influences as the G I R L album, the track is an uplifting ballad marked by sweeping strings, folk-rock guitar, and some truly heartfelt, Meat Loaf-inspired crooning. It’s definitely the perfect song to soundtrack Peter Parker as he stands atop a skyscraper, deeply contemplating some ginormous supervillain battle to come.
