Diana Ross teams up with Tame Impala on ‘Turn Up The Sunshine’ for the new ‘Minions’ movie

Diana Ross and Tame Impala have teamed up on a new collaborative track called “Turn Up The Sunshine.”

The song comes from the soundtrack for Minions: The Rise of Gru, which has a pretty stacked lineup of stars covering songs from the ’70s. “Turn Up The Sunshine” is the only new tune on the album, co-written by Jack Antonoff, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, singer Sam Dew, and Swedish musician and producer Patrik Berger.

The sunny, dance-worthy song opens up with young voices repeating the phrase “Turn Up The Sunshine” before Ross chimes in on lead vocals. On the track, Tame Impala channel their signature psychedelic sound, accompanying Ross’ punchy vocal lines just perfectly.

Listen to “Turn Up The Sunshine” below.

Produced by Jack Antonoff, the OST is set to feature artists like Phoebe Bridgers, Thundercat, St. Vincent, Caroline Polachek, Brittany Howard, BROCKHAMPTON, Kali Uchis, Tierra Whack, and Weyes Blood. All of these artists will cover some of the most popular funk, pop, and soul hits of the 1970s. Minions: The Rise of Gru takes place in the ’70s, so it’s only natural for it to be packed with some huge covers.

In addition to “Turn Up The Sunshine,” Bridgers will be putting her own twist on the Carpenters’ “Goodbye to Love.” St. Vincent, on the other hand, covers Lipps Inc’s “Funkytown,” while Polachek sings Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang.”
