A track Gorillaz and D12 recorded days after September 11 will be released on the upcoming "Bad Company" soundtrack, along with previously unreleased material from DMX, Bubba Sparxxx and Jagged Edge.
"911," which also features Terry Hall of veteran ska group the Specials, is a Middle Eastern-flavored tune with references to the terrorist attacks and Osama bin Laden (see "Gorillaz's '911' Collaboration With D12 Available Online").
Due June 4, the soundtrack will also feature songs from Blu Cantrell, New Orleans rapper Supervision featuring Ja Rule, Mr. Cheeks, Next, Jaheim, and newcomers Rama Duke and Kola, according to a spokesperson for the movie.
The album's first single is "Breathe in Breathe Out" from Ali featuring the St. Lunatics. Ali said the idea for the song came from a dance started at a club in his hometown.
"It's a big thing in St. Louis," Ali said. "There's a dance that goes with it. 'Breathe in/ Breathe out/ Do the chickenhead/ Let it out.' "
Other songs on the soundtrack include Outkast's "B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad)" and Tricky's "Excess," which features Alanis Morissette.
"Bad Company," in theaters June 7, stars Chris Rock as the blue-collar twin brother of a CIA operative who is killed on the verge of completing a top-secret mission. A veteran agent, played by Anthony Hopkins, is brought in to train Rock's character in nine days to complete the mission.
