Frequent collaborators and The Voice co-hosts Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams have once again teamed up to deliver a new track for the Paddington soundtrack. Servicing as a nice theme song for the Peruvian bear who loves marmalade, the video for Shine has just debuted, offering plenty of footage from this family feature that is pleasing both critics and audiences like around the globe.
Shine isn't the first time Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams have brought their musical talents together. The pair most famously created the tune Hollaback Girl together, which became one of 2005's most popular songs. And they've worked on a number of albums and singles since that time. About Shine, Paddington producer Harvey Weinstein states:
"Pharrell and Gwen's song 'Shine' perfectly captures the fun, playful spirit of Paddington and it's incredibly exciting to have a genius duo like these two lending their voices to the movie."
Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you," and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. Check out the music video Shine:
