Collect this LIMITED EDITION Baymax 7-inch vinyl single which features original song 'Immortals' performed by Fall Out Boy from the original motion picture BIG HERO 6! Fall Out Boy was tapped to write and perform the song for the film's sequence in which the 'Big Hero 6' team is transformed from a group of super smart individuals to a band of high-tech heroes. 'The idea of this kid stepping up on behalf of his brother is what inspired the song's title 'Immortals,'' says Patrick Stump. 'Your victories aren't exclusively yours, so the fact that all of these people are coming together to help him get to the finish line is really exciting.' 'They're testing out their new super suits for the first time in the scene,' says Pete Wentz. 'Some of it works, some of it doesn't. You get the sense that they're stepping into a bigger role. The story's in the DNA of Fall Out Boy. It is an authentic story and it's who our band is. We've always identified with the underdog.'
