Shawn Mendes’ ‘Lyle, Lyle Crocodile’ Soundtrack Contributions Revealed

Shawn Mendes, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and more are on the soundtrack for the upcoming animated movie “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.” Mendes, as the voice of the titular character, also revealed that he will be sharing one of the original tracks he wrote for the set titled “Heartbeat” next Friday (September 30).

He is credited on eight tracks on the list and is also joined by his co-stars Constance Wu and Javier Bardem, as well as Anthony Ramos. The full soundtrack will be available to stream on October 1. 7, the same day as the film’s official premiere.

Based on Bernard Waber’s 1965 children’s book, the Will Speck and Josh Gordon film follows Lyle the crocodile as he navigates New York. After the Primm family moves into her house on 88th Street, Mrs. Primm, played by Wu, is surprised to find the crocodile singing in her bathtub. Eventually, the crocodile befriends his son Josh (Winslow Fegley) and his owner Hector P. Valenti, played by Bardem.

In the trailer, Mendes can be heard singing an original song by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the acclaimed and award-winning songwriters behind “The Greatest Showman,” “Dear Evan Hansen,” and “La La Land.”

For the film’s announcement in late June, Mendes spoke with People and explained that he felt “really comfortable” playing Lyle because the crocodile sings exclusively throughout the film.

“I was able to do what I do best, plus I relate so much to her story and her character that it felt natural,” she said. “When I was approached to help do the music for such a classic book adaptation, it was a no-brainer and a really fun departure from what I’m used to.”
