There probably isn't a musician better to produce the original soundtrack to the brand new CGI rendition of The Grinch than Tyler, the Creator. Over the years, Tyler has expressed his interest in curating movie scores for films and creating his own on-screen content. And in time, all of his desires have come to fruition whether it's having his own animated show in The Jellies or producing commercials for Mountain Dew, Tyler has reached and conquered some pretty resume-worthy milestones throughout his music career. Now, the hip-hop artist/producer has officially released the full original soundtrack to the animated film, The Grinch, by the same name and has a listen-worthy single from the soundtrack that is tastefully done and surprisingly good in "I Am the Grinch" featuring rising singer, Fletcher Jones.
"I Am the Grinch" is decorated with a variety of sleigh bell instruments, chimes, agogos, chakras, and more appropriately composed to provide the track with the perfect amount of holiday vibe. The song also features multiple musical transitions featuring piano melodies, horn sections, and string chords. Lyrically, Tyler was Tyler and stayed in the pocket of the beat rhythmically while Fletcher Jones added a weightlessness to the busy instrumentation with her breathy vocals.
Honestly, this is one better curated movie-themed songs created in some time. The Grinch is officially in theaters now and the original soundtrack is available on all streaming services and platforms where music is sold. Listen to "I Am the Grinch" by Tyler, the Creator featuring Fletcher Jones in the video below. Also, if you happen to be in the Los Angeles area this weekend, Nov. 10 and 11, and would like to attend Tyler, the Creator's annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival and Music Festival you can find tickets, here on AXS.
