“When I wrote ‘Gonna Be You’ for 80 For Brady, I wanted to write a song that celebrated these womens’ deep friendship,” Warren said in a statement. “Since ’80’ was in the title I got a crazy idea, why not get some of the most iconic singers from the ’80s, who are still amazing and always will be, to all sing it?

“Everyone I approached said yes and was just as excited as me. I’m honored to have Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan, and Debbie Harry on this song!! ‘Gonna Be You’ is that song you want to sing along to with all your good friends!”

Set for release in Australia on Thursday, 2nd February, 80 For Brady follows four friends – played by Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and Sally Field – as they make their way to Houston to see their hero, Tom Brady, play in the 2017 Super Bowl match between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. The film was produced by Brady’s 199 Productions.
