Disney’s Descendants was a big hit here at Rock Father HQ, and now that we’re just a few months out from the release of Descendants 2, our girls have been getting more excited with each little tidbit of info. Now comes a big reveal – full details on the film’s soundtrack, and the pending release of “Ways to Be Wicked,” the first single. The new track featuring Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Cameron Boyce and Booboo Stewart, will debut on Radio Disney tomorrow, THURSDAY, APRIL 13 (3:00 p.m. PDT). Additionally, the single will be available for download, and the pre-order for the full Descendants 2 soundtrack will be available from Walt Disney Records wherever digital music is sold and streamed on FRIDAY, APRIL 14.
From the Official Announcement: “Ways to Be Wicked” is performed by Cameron, Carson, Boyce and Stewart who will take over Radio Disney for the “planet premiere” of the high-energy pop rock anthem from the upcoming movie sequel. The song is produced by Sam Hollander and Josh Edmondson who wrote the song with Grant Michaels and Charity Daw. A lyric video for the single will be available on DisneyMusicVEVO starting Friday, April 14.
The “Descendants 2” soundtrack will feature six original songs, two covers of “Kiss the Girl” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from Disney’s animated classic “The Little Mermaid,” and three original songs from the animated short-form series “Descendants: Wicked World” including “Better Together,” “Evil” and “Rather Be With You.” Fans who pre-order the soundtrack will be able to immediately download the “Ways to Be Wicked” single and the three upbeat pop songs from “Descendants: Wicked World.”
