Stream Machine Gun Kelly & Bebe Rexha's "Bright" Soundtrack Song "Home" Now!
Here’s another song from the upcoming “Bright” soundtrack (“Bright” being the Netflix exclusive sci-fi/action movie starring Will Smith that will get released on December 22nd): “Home” by Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha. The new song was released today on digital platforms. An official audio video was uploaded as well on YouTube today.
Talking about the concept of the song and how recording it was, the three acts involved said the following (as extracted from the official press release we received today):
“I wrote my part of the song the day I found out Chester Bennington died,” said multi-Platinum recording artist/actor Machine Gun Kelly about “Home.” “My original verses were a little too dark because of where my lyrics were stemming from, so I re-wrote and re-recorded my verses 13 times until we got the one we wanted. Bebe and X Ambassadors give me goosebumps when they start riffing back and forth at the end of the song; it feels like we all recorded it from the same emotional place. Home can be anything… A person, A dream, An escape — whatever it is, we all want a home.”
“To be a part of this film is such an honor,” said Sam Harris from multi-Platinum rock band X Ambassadors. “I’ve loved David Ayer since I saw End of Watch, and Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are fantastic in this film. To me, Home is a feeling - it’s about finding peace with yourself amongst the chaos of the world around you. A place where you feel safe. It was so much fun working with MGK and Bebe who are both incredibly talented. MGK told me he wrote 13 different verses for this track - it’s humbling to be part of something he worked so hard on.”
"It was incredible collaborating with such amazing artists and being a part of such an exciting project,” added multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha.
“Home, a place where I can go / To take this off my shoulders / Someone take me home”, they sing in the chorus of this “Bright” soundtrack song. “Home” is both a cry for help and a reminder that there’s always hope, even in the darkest scenarios.
The music video for “Home” will premiere soon!
