Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot have teamed up for Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid), and the lead single will be Elle King's Good Girls.

The soundtrack also features a few classic tunes as well as the new cuts. Ray Parker Jr's memorable theme tune from the original 1984 film is included as well as DeBarge's Rhythm of the Night and DMX's Party Up (Party Up In Here).

The soundtrack will be released on July 15, through RCA Records, on the same day the film hits cinemas.

The lead up to the movies release has been mired in some controversy, as some have criticised the decision to go with an all-female ghostbusting squad.

But director Paul Feig has hit back at critics, saying: "We still get called in the press as a 'chick flick.'

"We are always referred to as "the all-female Ghostbusters. It's just an uphill battle and I can't believe we are having to deal with it ... There were a bunch of people that were angry that there was a reboot."

The full track list for the soundtrack is as follows:

1. Walk the Moon - Ghostbusters
2. G-Eazy and Jeremih - Saw It Coming
3. Elle King - Good Girls
4. 5 Seconds of Summer - Girls Talk Boys
5. Zayn - wHo
6. Pentatonix - Ghostbusters
7. Wolf Alice - Ghoster
8. Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott - Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)

11. DeBarge - Rhythm of the Night
12. Muddy Magnolias - American Woman
13. Beasts Of Mayhem - Want Some More
14. Ray Parker Jr. - Ghostbusters
