Does Selena Gomez’s New Song For ’13 Reasons Why’ Sound Familiar?

Selena Gomez has a new song out for her next film, 13 Reasons Why. The song probably sounds familiar because it is a cover of Yazoo’s 1982 “Only You.” The singer also did an acoustic version of her track “Kill ‘Em with Kindness” for the film’s soundtrack.

Selena Gomez has two songs featured on the soundtrack for 13 Reasons Why. The singer recorded a slow, sultry version of the original upbeat 80s song “Only You.”

The song for 13 Reasons Why is Selena Gomez’s first non-collaboration track since 2015, according to Hollywood Life.

During a recent interview, Selena revealed that she had been back in the studio. Perhaps she is feeling inspired by her new relationship with The Weeknd?

According to other reports by the Inquisitr, Selena has decided to follow the R&B singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, across the world on his international tour because she wants to spend some time focusing on her personal life for a change.

Insiders shared with reporters that Selena “loved being back at work” and that she was “super psyched” to be working on new music.

Gomez took some time out of the spotlight and canceled the remainder of her “Revival Tour” last year after struggling with anxiety and depression. She spent some time in therapy and refocused her life before returning to the spotlight in November 2016.

Selena Gomez teased her fans with a 30-second preview of her new 13 Reasons Why song on Twitter on Wednesday.

The singer told fans that the track was “inspired by Hannah and Clay’s story,” the main characters in the film.

13 Reasons Why follows a timid teenager who comes home from school one day and finds a box full of 13 cassette tapes sent to him by a classmate who had just committed suicide.

The film is based on the 2007 novel by the same name and touches on heavy themes like bullying, shaming, and teenage suicide, according to Popcrush.

What 13 reasons why has represented was an authentic story of what every kid deals with in every day life. The pressure, the unrealistic expectations of what they believe they should be. Whether you have read this book or not, it’s a story of what every kid does and will continue to go through – unless we keep talking about it. People are hurting and deserve to be heard. Tired of others portraying a false idea of what every day life is. I hope @13reasonswhy can enlighten people to what words mean when you say them.

The tagline for the Netflix film, which will be released March 31, is, “Why would a dead girl lie?”

Other notable songs on the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack are “Bored” by Billie Eilish, who is one of the year’s most promising up-and-comers, the ’80s classic “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” and The Call with “The Walls Come Down.”
