In anticipation of the June 13 2014 theatrical release of Columbia Pictures/Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ 22 Jump Street, one of the year’s most eagerly awaited action-comedies, Casablanca Records has teamed with the studios to release the soundtrack album to the film. The album will be released on iTunes and other digital outlets on June 10 and in stores on June 24.
In addition to noteworthy hits from Wiz Khalifa, Tiësto, Duck Sauce and more, the track listing features two unreleased tracks from Travis Barker, blink-182’s iconic drummer, and the critically acclaimed hip-hop sensation Angel Haze. Barker enlists Juicy J and LIZ for the hyper-charged and hypnotic, Live Forever. Ignited by a furious beat from Barker, it’s an undeniable and uproarious banger. Angel Haze, alongside none other than Ludacris, delivers 22 Jump Street (Theme From The Motion Picture), giving the movie its own anthem. The Angel Haze song, 22 Jump Street (Theme From The Motion Picture) premiered this week on Vibe.com.
In 22 Jump Street, after making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them. Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Screenplay by Michael Bacall and Oren Uziel and Rodney Rothman, from a story by Michael Bacall and Jonah Hill, based on the television series, 21 Jump Street created by Patrick Hasburgh and Stephen J. Cannell. The film is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.
