Cars 3 Soundtrack First Listen: ZZ Ward & Gary Clark Jr’s Energetic Track, "Ride" and Dancing With The Stars Performance

Take a listen to the first song from the Cars 3 soundtrack featuring ZZ Ward and Gary Clark, Jr.
Cars 3 ZZ Ward with Gary Clark Jr

From the opening guitar notes of Ride you can feel the gritty sounds of Gary Clark Jr.’s signature rock/blues tone, followed quickly by the gripping vocals of ZZ Ward. The song is our first sample of the overall feel of the Cars 3 soundtrack, which will be a blend of rock/pop songs paired with the score of Randy Newman (similar to the Cars soundtrack).

You can listen to Ride on DisneyMusicVevo (embedded below). Additionally, ZZ Ward announced that she’ll be performing Ride on Dancing With The Stars on Monday night (April 17) — tune in.

Want to sing along? Lyrics for the song are also below!

UPDATED – Note that the soundtrack has been announced, check out a complete track listing for the score and soundtrack.

LYRICS

I feel the wind run through my hair
Top down, the sun’s gonna lead us there
Ray Bans and this 64’s all we need
Don’t let your head get in the way
Just let your heart beat wild and free
Open the door, jump in, and turn the key

(Pre-chorus)
I live my life out on the edge
Yeah, I don’t stop just ’cause it’s red
Let’s push this thing, see what we get
This black pavement, these yellow lines
Are pulling us into the night
I feel my temperature rise

(Chorus)
Ride, ride, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ride, ride, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ride, ride, yeah we gonna’ ride

I used to sit inside my room
Dreaming of things that I could do
Too scared to put my hands up on the wheel
Now I’m with you, and I can’t look back
It’s such a rush when we’re moving fast
I can’t deny the way you make me feel

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

Ride, ride, ride
Pedal to the floor
Ride, ride, ride
Whatcha waitin’ for?
Ride, ride, ride (Ride, ride, ride)
Pedal to the floor (Pedal to the floor)
Ride, ride, ride (Ride, ride, ride)
Whatcha waitin’ for?

(Chorus)

(guitar solo)

I live my life out on the edge
Yeah, I don’t stop just ’cause it’s red
Let’s push this thing, see what we get

(Chorus)

Ride, ride, ride (Ride, ride)
We gon’ ride (Ride, ride)
Yeah we gon’ ride, ride, ride (Ride, ride)
Yeah we gon’ ride (Ride, ride)
Yeah we gon’ ride
