In the Heights Soundtrack

In the Heights Movie Soundtrack to Be Released June 11

If you’re looking forward to finally seeing the movie version of In The Heights, here’s something else to add to your list of exciting new content coming your way. The musical companion to this summer’s highly anticipated event film directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jon M. Chu, In the Heights, will be released on June 11, the same day as the movie’s theatrical and HBO Max release. In the Heights (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes.

The soundtrack will be available to pre-order this Friday, April 23rd, accompanied by the film’s title track, “In The Heights.” The soundtrack will also feature a brand new, original song titled “Home All Summer,” written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and performed by the film’s stars, Anthony Ramos, Leslie Grace, and Marc Anthony.

In the Heights stars Anthony Ramos (A Star is Born, Broadway’s Hamilton), Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton, BlacKkKlansman), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (TV’s Vida), Olga Merediz (Broadway’s In the Heights), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s Rent), Gregory Diaz IV (Broadway’s Matilda the Musical), Stephanie Beatriz (TV’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Dascha Polanco (TV’s Orange is the New Black) and Jimmy Smits (the Star Wars films). Chu directed the film from a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes, based on the musical stage play, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes, and concept by Miranda. Miranda, Hudes, Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman, and Mara Jacobs produced the film, with David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

The creator of Hamilton and the director of Crazy Rich Asians invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big… In the Heights. Lights up on Washington Heights…The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life. “In the Heights” fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

Slated to open on June 11, 2021, in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It will be available on HBO Max for 31 days from the theatrical release. In the Heights is rated PG-13 for some language and suggestive references.
