“I wanted to write a song that celebrated these women’s deep friendship,” Warren said in a statement about the film. “Since 80 was in the title I got a crazy idea, why not get some of the most iconic singers from the 80s, who are still amazing and always will be, to all sing it?”
She added, “Everyone I approached said yes and was just as excited as me!”
Reposting news about the song on Instagram, Carlisle wrote, “What an honor to sing with @dollyparton @cyndilauper @gloriaestefan and DEBBIE HARRY! This secret has been hard to keep.”
The Kyle Marvin-directed film, set to be released on Feb. 3, follows the true story of four besties who go on a road trip to watch Tom Brady and the New England Patriots compete in Super Bowl LI.
