Dan Auerbach pens new track “Run That Race” for “Cars 3” soundtrack

PRNewsfoto/Walt Disney RecordsDan Auerbach is contributing a new song called “Run That Race” to the soundtrack of the upcoming Disney Pixar movie, Cars 3.

“The song is about never giving up and always trying your best,” The Black Keys frontman says in a statement. “[The filmmakers] showed me the storyboards and ran through the plot. I was able to read some of the dialogue and from there I had enough to piece together a story in my mind for the song.”

You’ll be able to hear “Run That Race” during the opening scene of Cars 3, which opens in theaters on June 16. The soundtrack will be released that same day.

Meanwhile, Auerbach’s sophomore solo album, Waiting on a Song, arrives on June 2.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
