Randy Newman returns for TOY STORY 4 soundtrack, single by Chris Stapleton
This project sees the return of with the Academy Award®-winning composer and songwriter Randy Newman. Plus, there will be two new songs “I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away” and “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy.” The end credit version of “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy” is performed by multi-Platinum, Grammy®-winning musician Chris Stapleton. The song is available today as a single and lyric video.
The composer and songwriter is behind signature songs like “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” “Strange Things,” “When She Loved Me” and “We Belong Together,” the last of which earned him an Academy Award® for best original song in 2010. “His music defines these movies,” said director Josh Cooley, “I can’t imagine making a fourth one without Randy Newman.”
TOY STORY 4 returns with everyone’s favorite pull-string cowboy sheriff Woody, along with his best friends Buzz Lightyear and Jessie, who are happy taking care of their kid, Bonnie, until a new toy called “Forky” arrives in her room. According to Forky, a spork-turned-craft-project, he’s not a toy at all—and he’d rather skip this big adventure completely, if only they’d let him. Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack return as the voices of Woody, Buzz and Jessie, and comedian Tony Hale lends his voice to Forky.
The film is directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”).
