The full song debuts Monday night at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, before the June 24 debut “The Hills: New Beginnings.”
The Hills has updated its famous theme song for the upcoming New Beginnings reboot, but longtime fans needn't worry: It will still be "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield. It's simply a new version the song, reworked with the help superproducer Linda Perry.
In a behind-the-scenes preview released Monday (June 17), Bedingfield explained that it's a remix "Unwritten," except she also re-recorded all the vocals. "Doing a remix has been really fun. A lot times with remixes, people take the original vocals and then just change the beats and chords around it — I wanted to re-sing it. I wanted to take where I'm at now and kind give it a new spin."
Clips Perry producing in the studio are also shown. "What I love about it, it's like I believe every word," Perry says in the studio.
The world premiere The Hills: New Beginnings' full theme song will take place during the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards, airing Monday night at 9 p.m. ET.
In 2006, "Unwritten" peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
"'Unwritten' is on my very first record. I wrote the song and there was this feeling , ‘Wow, I couldn't say it any better," Bedingfield shared, explaining that it got even bigger when MTV picked it up for the show.
