“Being asked to be a part of this project is a dream come true,” said Brink. “Ever since Chris and I started working together in In This Moment, we’ve fantasized about working on things like this. We are HUGE comic book/sci-fi/fantasy nerds and love everything about the DC universe. It was such an honor to work with Tyler Bates and Mike Elizondo and to be associated with something so iconic! We hope everyone enjoys the song as much as we do!”
