Florence + The Machine Share Soundtrack Song ‘Call Me Cruella’
Relatable lyrics include "I tried to be sweet, I tried to be kind, but I feel much better now that I’m out of my mind"
Florence + The Machine’s latest contribution to Disney’s live-action take on One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Cruella, is the aptly titled “Call me Cruella. Florence Welch, the band’s vocalist, teased a snippet of “Call Me Cruella” on Twitter last night, quoting the lyrics “I tried to be sweet, I tried to be kind, but I feel much better now that I’m out of my mind.
The punchy song is built up by Welch’s chilling whispers and lyrics that would only be spoken by a true villain.
A couple of weeks ago when Welch first previewed the song she shared, “Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs,” adding, “and the villains often got the best numbers. So to help create and perform a song for Cruella is the fulfillment of a long-held childhood dream.”

Cruella, which stars Emma Stone, will release in theaters and be available for order on Disney+ on May 28.
