    Rina Sawayama makes her acting debut in the brand-new John Wick: Chapter 4and it sure would’ve been a waste if she hadn’t contributed to the soundtrack as well. Ahead of the film’s theatrical premiere this Friday, March 24th, the Japanese-British pop experimentalist has shared the anthem “Eye for an Eye.”

    “Eye for an Eye” was produced and co-written by Tyler Bates, who’s also composed the futuristic-sounding scores for all four John Wick films. It begins with a funky, heavy-hitting synth riff that definitely feels a little reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer,” and the ’90s industrial vibes only get stronger from there as the instrumentals layer more and more, culminating in a pretty explosive chorus.

    Lyrically, Sawayama’s narrator is on the prowl for revenge: “An eye for an eye, a life for a life/ I’ll see you in hell on the other side,” she sings, her vocals multi-tracked like she’s summoning an army of Rinas. Sure, it feels a little bit like your standard pop-star-in-a-blockbuster-movie needle drop, but it’s pretty hard to resist bobbing your head to.


    The entire John Wick: Chapter 4 original soundtrack arrives this Friday, coinciding with the film’s release. Listen to “Eye for an Eye” below, and then keep scrolling to see the album’s artwork and tracklist.

    Sawayama’s last album was 2022’s Hold the Girl.
