Alice In Chains: Jerry Cantrell streams song from John Wick Chapter 2 soundtrack

Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell is streaming “A Job To Do”, a song from the soundtrack to the forthcoming film, “John Wick: Chapter 2.”

Directed by Chad Stahelski, the sequel to the 2014 movie “John Wick” stars Keanu Reeves as the legendary hitman forced out of retirement once again by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins' guild.

In theatres February 10, the project also features Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, Franco Nero, John Leguizamo and Ian McShane.

Cantrell performed "A Job To Do" with help from Tyler Bates, who also composed the score for the film.

"I really dug 'John Wick' and have always admired Keanu's work,” explains Cantrell. “When the opportunity arose to create a song for the second film, Tyler Bates and I wrote and recorded 'A Job To Do', a theme song for the character. Can't wait to see it!"

"Jerry and I are friends and neighbors,” adds Bates. “We got together to jam and came up with the music. He's a fan of the first John Wick movie and wrote the lyrics from John Wick's introspective."

The soundtrack for "John Wick: Chapter 2" will be released digitally on February 10 and on CD March 3.

Alice In Chains recently confirmed that they are in the studio recording the follow-up to 2013’s “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.”
