Despite that the original Pitch Perfect soundtrack was a blockbuster hit, the track listing and music from the followup has remained a relative secret, until now.

The full Pitch Perfect 2 soundtrack is now available on Spotify, days before the film premieres in U.S. theaters. According to Billboard, the music has been kept a secret so as not to spoil any plot points or surprises when the girls break into song during the film. 

“You can’t follow the normal formula in this case,” Bruce Resnikoff, president of Universal Music’s UMe division, explained to Billboard. “It would be a disservice to have fans hear what’s on the record without understanding how it fits into the movie. The plot is in the music.” 

Now fans have just a few days to interpret tracks like, “We Belong” and “We Got the World” before seeing them in context of the film. 

Pitch Perfect 2 debuts May 15.
