Rihanna makes film concept album
Rihanna is set to create a concept album for DreamWorks Animation's film Home.
Variety reported that the singer will also perform new songs in the movie, about a group of aliens who try to escape from their enemies by hiding out on Earth.
Home is based on Adam Rex's children's book The True Meaning Of Smekday and features the voices of Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin.
Due out in November, the film is directed by Tim Johnson, who made DreamWorks' Antz, as well as Sinbad: Legend Of The Seven Seas and Over The Hedge.
The film was previously set to be called Happy Smekday! after DreamWorks optioned the book's rights to adapt it into an animated feature film.
