Dumbo Trailer Includes New Arcade Fire Cover

As if people aren't excited enough for the new live action remake of Dumbo, the newest trailer gives us something even more for the music lovers!

Remember when Arcade Fire said something new might be coming soon?

Well, it turns out they recorded a new version of a classic song from the original movie! The original played during the scene where baby Dumbo visits his mom locked in a cage. Their new version of the lullaby "Baby Mine" will play during the new movie's closing credits and a clip has premiered during it's latest trailer!

Frontman Win Butler has discussed his connection to the original song in a new statement:

“There is a scene with a locomotive in the original Dumbo that uses an instrument called the Sonovox that my grandpa Alvino Rey made famous in the 1930s. Every time I saw the film I thought it was him. When we were asked to do the [‘Baby Mine’], I immediately got all of my grandfather’s old guitars and wanted to play them in the song. My mom plays the harp on the track, my brother the theremin, my wife [Chassagne] sings and plays drums, and our son even plays the triangle, as well as the rest of our ‘family’ in Arcade Fire. I will forever relate to the song thinking about the people I hold so dear that are ‘so precious to me.’ Listen for the cameo of my grandpa Alvino’s famous Sonovox at the end.”

Check out the new trailer and listen for the clip:
