Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams recently collaborated on a new song called “Shine,” appearing in the upcoming children’s movie Paddington. The duo wrote “Shine” from the title character’s perspective as the Peruvian bear finds himself in England.
“Shine” leaked in full a few weeks ago, but an official lyric video preview has now been released. It’s a short clip of the song – only a minute and a half long – featuring scenes from the Paddington movie.
Paddington will be in theaters in the US on Friday, January 16th, and will include the song “Shine.” The film was already released in other parts of the world back in November, but didn’t feature the uplifting song.
Gwen Stefani has been working on a third solo album, due out this spring. It will include her two singles “Baby Don’t Lie” and “Spark The Fire,” but it’s unknown if “Shine” will also make the cut. Her band No Doubt is also working on an album which is expected to be out in 2015. Keep checking back here for all the latest Gwen Stefani and No Doubt music news.
