Does anyone else find it really interesting that Florence Welch also contributed a song to Baz Luhrmann's film?

Seems like she's really passionate about the source material and has been for a while.

In addition to the classic songs, the WSS soundtrack out 12/10 will also feature modern tracks inspired by the film, written and performed by today's Latinx artists. This was confirmed by the artist Kali Uchis last weekend at the AMAs red carpet: https://twitter.com/LAUNlCAUPDATES/status/1462580068048261123?s=20

You can currently listen to Kali Uchis and Ozuna's "Another Day in America" (check the cover art; it says "Inspired by Steven Spielberg's West Side Story" on the bottom!): https://youtu.be/cw1qDzyiYW4

It's also expected that Selena Gomez's take on "I Feel Pretty" will be a part of this project (snippets have been circulating on Selena's TikTok and elsewhere since at least October). You can listen to bits here: https://youtu.be/5RnSeqwR5m0 

Interesting! I wonder who else is onboard for this project. (Hopefully Bad Bunny.)

I know this has been posted here before, but Brooklyn College is doing a very interesting lecture series about West Side Story and the Puerto Rico connection. So far, the series has invited several people involved with the 2021 film, like Tony Kushner and just today, Victor Cruz, who helped some of the cast with the Puerto Rican dialects. 

For those interested, you can view past recordings from the lecture series here: http://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/web/academics/schools/socialsciences/departments/prlstudies/west-side-story.php

They have Jeanine Tesori guesting on Monday, December 6th, and Spielberg is TBD. 

Worth checking out!

Speaking of expanded dialogue by Kushner, I saw this in a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly and found María's initiative super interesting:
