Edgar Wright has made it abundantly clear that his next movie, Baby Driver, will place a special emphasis on its soundtrack, courtesy of a hero who choreographs his own driving stunts with classic tracks like Golden Earring’s “Radar Love.” But Ansel Elgort’s MP3 player isn’t just filled with ’70s Dutch hits, either, as Wright revealed a new song from the soundtrack today, with “Chase Me” featuring contributions from Danger Mouse, Run The Jewels, and Big Boi.

Sampling and remixing “Bellbottoms,” from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (which also features heavily in the film), the track offers up the propulsive rhymes and rhythms you need when you’ve got Kevin Spacey and a semi-psychotic Jamie Foxx breathing down your neck. Baby Driver slides into theaters on June 28, while the soundtrack will release via Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records. (Meanwhile, according to Pitchfork, both RTJ’s Killer Mike and Big Boi have small cameos in the film itself.)
