No stranger to the film world (hello “Happy”), Pharrell Williams has contributed a handful of new songs to the soundtrack for Hidden Figures, the forthcoming Apollo 11-focused flick starring Janelle Monáe, Octavia Spencer (The Help), and Taraji P. Henson (Empire). Already we’ve heard two of those in last month’s “Surrender” and “Surfin'”. Williams has shared another today, a funky and feel-good cut called “Crave”. It’s no Despicable Me 2 runaway hit, but will surely end up a crowd pleaser should it land on the artist’s setlist.

Stream it below.

Hidden Figures, which was also co-produced by Williams, opens in theaters on Christmas Day. Its soundtrack, meanwhile, will be available for purchase beginning December 9th; songs from Monáe, Alicia Keys, and Mary J. Blige are also featured.
