into the spider-verse christmas songs

One of the funniest gags in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is A Very Spidey Christmas, the Christmas album released by everyone’s favorite web-slinger. At first, the album is presented as a quick joke. But during the end credits, we get to hear one of the songs in full – as sung by Chris Pine. Sadly, the song was not included on the original soundtrack release. But now, just in time for the holiday, A Very Spidey Christmas will be released in EP form on December 21. Best of all: you can hear “Spidey-Bells”, the closing credits songs, right now.

I was very surprised when “Spidey-Bells”, the hilarious Chris Pine-performed tune that plays over Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘s end credits, didn’t make its way onto the film’s soundtrack, but now I know why. They were saving it for just the right moment. And that right moment is now, because you can listen to “Spidey-Bells” right this very minute.

And here’s a last-minute holiday treat I think we’ve all been waiting for. The Into the Spider-Verse Christmas songs are being released digitally tomorrow, December 21. Here are the details from Film Music Reporter:

Sony Pictures Animation will release a new soundtrack EP featuring the Christmas songs recorded for the studios’ Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, including Chris Pine’s rendition of Spidey-Bells (A Hero’s Lament) (as featured in the movie’s end credits) and Up on the House Top, Joy to the World performed by Shameik Moore and Deck the Halls performed by Jake Johnson. A Very Spidey Christmas will be released digitally tomorrow, December 21.

The EP includes the following songs:

1. Joy to the World – Shameik Moore (1:40)
2. Spidey-Bells (A Hero’s Lament) – Chris Pine (2:41)
3. Deck the Halls – Jake Johnson (2:05)
4. Up on the House Top – Chris Pine (1:45)

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who were behind the Spider-Verse story, had previously confirmed a few of the Christmas song’s had been recorded.

But wait, there’s more! “Deck The Halls” has made its way online as well.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is now playing in theaters everywhere.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
