The band covers the Oscar-nominated Pasek and Paul tune, as well as Frozen’s “Let It Go,” on their new From the Screen to Your Stereo album.

Punk rock band New Found Glory will release its latest album From the Screen to Your Stereo 3 May 3, and theatre lovers will recognize a few tunes, including “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman.

“When it came to do part three, the focus was on the anthems,” New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert told Variety. “What’s the Titanic and the Robin Hood theme of today? What are the songs you can’t escape in 2018, 2019? ‘This is Me’ was one of them.”

Written by Tony, Grammy, and Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen), “This Is Me” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song; Tony nominee Keala Settle sang the anthem during the 2018 Awards ceremony.

The seven-track New Found Glory album features songs from movies like Frozen and Back to the Future. The band also created accompanying music videos recreating scenes from the films; check out their "This Is Me" video above.

The album also includes “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis & The News (a music group that recently received the jukebox musical treatment), “Cups” from Pitch Perfect, and “Eye of the Tiger” from Rocky.
