Music album will feature original tracks inspired by toy franchise.
Hasbro Studios, the Los Angeles-based entertainment division of Hasbro, has partnered with Sony Music Entertainment for the release of “Transformers Roll Out,” an alt-rock tribute to Hasbro’s Transformers franchise.
“Transformers Roll Out” features a collection of original songs by established and up-and-coming alternative, rock and alt-pop artists including Bush and Mount Holly.
“Growing up, I was (and still am) a huge fan of the Transformers franchise. It was an amazing experience working with Hasbro to produce this album and to contribute the title song ‘Roll Out,’” says Nick Perri, album producer and lead guitarist, Mount Holly. “The album embodies the action-packed high energy vibe that Transformers is known for and also brings in some outer world ambience and emotionally driven songs as well. All of the artists were thrilled to deliver on the mission.”
“The release of ‘Transformers Roll Out’ demonstrates the pop culture power of the Transformers franchise,” says Stephen Davis, executive vice president and chief content officer, Hasbro. “With generations of audiences celebrating the brand across television, film, digital entertainment, consumer products and now music, this could not be a more exciting time for Hasbro and Transformers. This unique project truly delivers on the ‘More than Meets the Eye’ brand promise.”
