HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - DECEMBER 11: Travis Scott arrives at the premiere of A24's "Uncut Gems" at The Dome at Arclight Hollywood on December 11, 2019 in Hollywood, California.

Travis Scott has officially announced the release of his soundtrack single “The Plan” from Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming thriller Tenet. Produced in collaboration with Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson, the song is Travis’ first song that the rapper and produced penned for a film. “The Plan” is scheduled to be released on Friday (Aug. 21).

Scott revealed the cover art and shared a snippet of the song in a trailer that aired on NBA on TNT. “This is my first original song for a film,” Travis said in the clip, which also features Tenet star John David Washington. “Which is actually fire ’cause I kinda wouldn’t want it any other way.”

 

Travis previewed “The Plan,” during his GQ cover interview, which the publication describes as a  “brain-liquefying trip through time and space.”

“His voice became the final piece of a yearlong puzzle,” Nolan said. “His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound.”

“The way that he connects with art is not in a singular form. He has so many tentacles, and they’re all-electric. So when we talk about feeling, [whether that’s] listening to a song or talking about a movie, he can visualize things in so many different fields. So it’s a very special ability. It’s like his own magic power,” Göransson told Deadline about working with the rapper. The film opens in the United States on Sept. 3 and in  Canada on Aug. 27.
