Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley and Keean Johnson are amongst the cast of the big-budget affair which debuts in February. Robert Rodriguez directs.

The video that accompanies the new track places Lipa on the treacherous streets of Iron City in the middle of Alita’s world. The video’s director Floria Sigismondi said of the video “While in the film Alita is quite literally on a journey to discover who she is, her story serves as a really powerful allegory for any girl who doesn’t yet know her own power. I wanted to play with that same profound notion by dropping Dua into a facet of Alita’s world and allowing Alita to serve as a surrogate that leads her on a journey to discover she’s stronger than she ever could have imagined.”
