Jerry Cantrell has kept his solo career on the back-burner since Alice In Chains has been busy prepping a new album for later this year. Jerry has contributed a new song to the soundtrack of John Wick: Chapter 2. Listen to ‘A Job To Do’ below:
The soundtrack will be released digitally on February 10 via Varèse Sarabande in conjunction with the opening of the movie, while the physical version will arrive on March 3. Cantrell performed the song with help from Tyler Bates, who also composed the score for the film.
“I really dug ‘John Wick’ and have always admired Keanu’s work. When the opportunity arose to create a song for the second film, Tyler Bates and I wrote and recorded ‘A Job To Do’, a theme song for the character. Can’t wait to see it!”
Bates also commented:
“Jerry and I are friends and neighbors. We got together to jam and came up with the music. He’s a fan of the first John Wick movie and wrote the lyrics from John Wick’s introspective.”
John Wick: Chapter 2 was directed by Chad Stahelski and stars Keanu Reeves, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, Franco Nero, John Leguizamo and Ian McShane.
