Following the worldwide success of the soundtrack from The Greatest Showman, filmmakers decided to up the ante by enlisting the help of famous artists to recreate the future classics featured in the film for a new release: The Greatest Showman – Reimagined. Among those acts is country music’s own Zac Brown Band, who perform a countrified version of “From Now On.”
Originally performed by Hugh Jackman, the reinvented track highlights ZBB’s iconic harmonies and hints of twang as they sing “From now on / These eyes will not be blinded by the lights / From now on / What’s waited till tomorrow starts tonight, Tonight / Let this promise in me start / Like an anthem in my heart / From now on.”
In addition to ZBB’s appearance, the new soundtrack features vocal performances from P!nk, Kelly Clarkson, Sara Bareilles, Pentatonix, Kesha, Panic! At The Disco and many others.
The Greatest Showman – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack spent 31 weeks in the Top 10 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200, including two weeks at No.1. With streams exceeding 3 billion, the soundtrack has since earned 4x platinum certification in the United Kingdom and South Korea; 2x platinum in Ireland, Australia, and Singapore; platinum in New Zealand, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and Indonesia; and gold in Canada, Mexico, and the Philippines.
The record includes “This Is Me,” performed by Keala Settle, and earned Best Original Song – Motion Picture at the 75th Golden Globe Awards and was nominated for Best Original Song at the 90th Academy Awards.
The Greatest Showman tells the story of P.T. Barnum, as he rose from nothing to a worldwide sensation. It features performances from Academy Award-nominee Hugh Jackman alongside Academy Award-nominee Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Zac Efron, and Rebecca Ferguson.
