New Politics Rock for Disney’s ‘Frozen’ in New Trailer
The promotional buzz is growing for the Nov. 27 release of Disney’s newest animated film, ‘Frozen,’ and a trailer featuring the New Politics song ‘Harlem’ is now making the rounds.
‘Frozen’ is an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale ‘The Snow Queen.’ The plot centers on a town’s struggles against the book’s dreaded titular character, whose permanent spell has turned its lush summer into a permanent winter. It becomes incumbent upon a princess, Anna (Kristen Bell), the good-hearted sister of the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel), to get the spell reversed. She enlists Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) to help her and, along with a wacky snowman (Josh Gad).
At the 20-second mark of the ‘Frozen’ trailer, the song ‘Harlem’ begins to play. The tune appeared on New Politics’ album ‘A Bad Girl in Harlem,’ released earlier this year. It reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Alternative chart and No. 21 on their rock chart. It’s unclear what the song has to do with the movie, but both Andersen and New Politics are from Denmark, so geographically speaking, it makes sense.
