Moana

We’re under a month away from getting a new Disney adventure in the form of Moana, complete with a bunch of new original songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina. We’re already heard one of the songs from the upcoming soundtrack featuring Dwayne Johnson singing “You’re Welcome,” and now we have one more song from the movie.

It’s a tradition with Disney soundtracks that a famous singer records a cover of one of the signature songs from an animated movie, mostly for radio play.

You can listen to the full Moana song after the jump. Read More »
