Action Bronson, Mark Ronson and Dan Auerbach Are “Standing in the Rain” for This ‘Suicide Squad’ Cut
Zane Lowe debuted the song on his Beats 1 radio show. The record serves as an updated version of Oran "Juice" Jones' 1986 classic, "The Rain." Auerbach handles the hook, singing, "I saw you standing in the rain / You were holding his hand and I'll never be the same."
Mark Ronson sat down for an interview with Lowe and spoke about the formation of the track. Ronson says, "I just couldn't believe that Dan, like, was just so cool and was like, 'Do you mind singing this Oran 'Juice' Jones song that you've never heard? When I finally got it back, I was like, 'this is cool."
Ronson continues, "Bronson's verse is just insane on it, I love it. And it just never had a home. We didn't finish it in time for Bronson's record, it didn't really work on mine, and then they heard it for the movie, Suicide Squad, they dug it, and they put it in this great scene with Will Smith and his [Deadshot] character."
