CULVER CITY, Calif., June 16, 2015 – Fifth Harmony, the award-winning girl group whose top 10, platinum hit “Worth It” is currently rocketing up the charts, has recorded the new song “I’m In Love With A Monster” for Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2, it was announced today by Lia Vollack, president of Worldwide Music for Sony Pictures.  The sequel to the monster hit, which took in over $350 million worldwide, will be released in theaters on September 25.

“I’m In Love With A Monster” will be heard in the film as well as in the new trailer, which launches this week.  “I’m In Love With A Monster” is produced by Harmony Samuels and written by Harmony Samuels, Carmen Reece, Sarah Mancuso, Edgar Etienne, and Ericka Coulter.

The new song will be released by Syco/Epic Records next month.

Commenting on the announcement, Vollack said, “There are few groups out there that can match the incredibly fun feel and animated vision that Genndy Tartakovsky is bringing to Hotel Transylvania 2, and Fifth Harmony knocked it out of the park.  The song is exactly what we were hoping for.”

Ally, Normani, Dinah, Camila, and Lauren of Fifth Harmony said, “We’re incredibly excited that our song, ‘I’m In Love With A Monster,’ will be part of Hotel Transylvania 2! The movie is hilarious and so much fun!”

Drac’s pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2!  Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania…  Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp.  But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel.  And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!
