It was written and produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It was released along with the album on November 18, Canadian singer Alessia Cara also recorded the song for the Moana soundtrack. Although Miranda has stressed that he is still "very proud of" the song as a first draft, "More" was not good enough in retrospect because it merely expressed Moana's vague desire to see more since she had already figured out everything about the island. It's even more confusing. And that's a valid story too. To make himself write a song more compelling than "More", Miranda " went method ". According to sheet music published at Sheetmusicdirect. Written in common time , the song is in the key of E major with a key change to F major for the final 10 measures.

The film is about a young Polynesian girl that seeks to find the reason why her island is slowly dying and to set things right by returning the heart of Te Fiti, the mother of all creation, and restoring balance to the world. On the other hand though, the songs were actually quite well done. Like some of the most popular princesses, or young women of importance if princess is too broad of a term, Moana is among those that seeks something beyond the world she knows and has seen since she was born. But her place on the island seems to be cast in stone according to her father, who uses the excuse of responsibility to get her to take her everyday life seriously in an attempt to keep her safe and secure where he can look over her. Legends of Maui kind of paint a different picture of this figure, from his size to his deeds. There are even a few tales about Maui that are kind of dark and likely were left out as a means to avoid frightening children and angering parents.
The soundtrack was released by Walt Disney Records on November 19, The two-disc deluxe edition includes the score , which was composed by Mancina, as well as demos, outtakes and instrumental karaoke tracks. The record also produced two singles.
Has there been a more highly anticipated movie soundtrack this year than Moana 's? A Disney animated musical comes with very high expectations to begin with. Add to those expectations the fact that Disney tapped Hamilton genius Lin Manuel Miranda to collaborate with South Pacific Fusion songwriter Opetaia Foa'i and composer Mark Mancina on the score, and the buzz gets even louder.
