After co-directing a song for the blockbuster Top Gun: MaverickLaval resident John Nathaniel signs the production of two songs interpreted by Shawn Mendes which will appear in the film Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.

Produced by Will Speck and Josh Gordon Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is a family musical that stars Javier Bardem and Constance Wu.
Shawn Mendes for his part lends his voice to that of the fantastic crocodile character (who helps a young boy tame his move to New York). Two songs he performs are produced by Laval songwriter John Nathaniel, to whom we recently devoted a portrait, who is notably a close collaborator of the group One Republic.
One of the songs is titled Top of the World and it can be heard in the movie’s trailer.
John Nathaniel was entrusted with the mandate for Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile by Pasek and Paul, Oscar winners for Best Original Song for La La Land. “Making songs for a musical was a first for me and quite a contrast to the song I Ain’t Worried of OneRepublic which is found in Top Gun: Maverick. It’s a great challenge and a real pledge of confidence,” he commented.
