Check out “Get Happy” with Renée Zellweger and Sam Smith out Now
On Sept. 24, 2019, Republic and Decca Records released the brand-new single “Get Happy” featuring artists Renée Zellweger and Sam Smith.
The soundtrack is based off the release of the highly-anticipated feature film, Judy, in which Zellweger stars as Judy Garland, set for U.S. release on September 27. The soundtrack for Judy features Zellweger’s astonishing recordings singing some of Judy Garland’s most famous numbers. We love hearing the “For Once In My Life”, “Come Rain Or Come Shine” and “Over The Rainbow.”
“When I was 17 years old, I did a project on Judy Garland for my film studies A-level. I was immediately immersed into the magic of Judy and her incredibly brave and triumphant story. It was truly an honour to sing with Renée,” said Sam Smith.
