This Friday (March 24), Rina Sawayama will make her acting debut in John Wick: Chapter 4, the latest installment in the ongoing Keanu Reeves-led assassin action fantasy franchise. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the English-Japanese pop star has a song on the film’s soundtrack, the first new cut of music from Sawayama since last year’s Hold The Girl. The new track is called “Eye For An Eye,” and you can listen to it below.
With flavors of industrial, pop, and ’90s alternative rock, and lyrics about a once-vulnerable person getting revenge, “Eye For An Eye” isn’t too far removed from the kind of razor-spiked candy Sawayama has worked with since her eponymous 2020 sophomore album. The track’s swelling chorus, though, lends it a bit of Bond theme grandeur.
“It’s an honor to work with my brother Joel Richard in creating the musical landscape for a decade of John Wick,” Sawayama said in a press statement. “Thank you, Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves, for having us on board and making these films with such fire and passion!”
