Leading off the soundtrack album of "Robots" is Virgin soul star Ricky Fante, who recorded his new song "Shine," especially for the film. Pop-rockers Fountains of Wayne also appear with a newly-recorded song, "Tell Me What You Already Did." Film score composer John Powell is joined by theatrical innovators Blue Man Group for "Robot City."
Several recent hit tunes will be familiar in the soundtrack: "Right Thurr," the hip-hop smash by Chingy; the top 20 single "I Like That" by Houston, featuring Chingy and Nate Dogg; and the recent single by Virgin artist Stacie Orrico, "(There's Gotta Be) More to Life."
New Zealand pop-punkers Steriogram also highlight the soundtrack with the manic "Walkie Talkie Man," nominated for Breakthrough Video in last fall's MTV Video Music Awards, alongside Fatboy Slim's "Wonderful Night," the latest single from his album Palookaville, featuring a rap by Lateef the Truth Speaker. Mercury Music Prize winners Gomez, currently touring the U.S., contribute the song "Silence."
Pop music's legends are also represented in the track list, with War's west coast Latin-funk classic "Low Rider," while James Brown's late-Seventies "Get Up Offa That Thing" appears in a new club remix. R&B supergroup Earth, Wind and Fire contributes a brand-new track, "Love's Dance," a collaboration with superstar producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, from a forthcoming new EWF album.
