Meghan Trainor says, “I was thrilled to be offered the chance to see an early vision of The Peanuts Movie and then be inspired to write a song that captured the film’s spirit, energy, and sense of joy. It was a pleasure to work with director Steve Martino to make sure the song did right by the incredible characters that the team is bringing to the big screen. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the song!”
