Disney’s upcoming feel-good movie, McFarland, USA, will feature a new song by Colombian star Juanes in its end credits. Juanes wrote “Juntos,” which translates to “together,” specifically for the film, which is directed by Niki Caro and stars Kevin Costner and Maria Bello.
The movie — which will be out February next year — tells the true story of a Latino high school cross country team from McFarland, Calif. that’s coached through several social issues in the 1980s to win a major championship. The film stars Costner as the coach.
The video for “Juntos,” also directed by Caro, was shot on location in McFarland.
“Watching the film left me inspired about the power of teamwork, tenacity and faith, and I’m honored to now be part of the ‘McFarland, USA’ team,” said Juanes in a statement.
Juanes’ current album, Loco de Amor, is up for a Grammy in the Best Latin Pop Album category.
