The track begins with an acoustic guitar before expanding into grungier territory, and Cantrell's signature vocals certainly gives it an Alice in Chains flavor. He co-wrote "A Job to Do" with composer Tyler Bates, who scored the film.

"I moved houses a few years ago and ended up meeting my new neighbor, Tyler," Cantrell tells Billboard. "He did the first [John Wick] movie and a song with Marilyn Manson, ['Killing Strangers'] that I thought really fit the film. He mentioned there was going to be a sequel and maybe we could work it out."

Of writing a song specially for a film, Cantrell says the process was "kind of fun."

"It almost felt like an assignment that I gave to myself," he adds. "It's not unlike how I normally write from a personal point of view, whether mine or someone else's."

John Wick: Chapter 2 follows an assassin, played by Keanu Reeves, who is reluctantly pulled back into an insane world of expertly-choreographed gunfights and car chases. The soundtrack will be released digitally this Friday, February 10, the same day the film hits theaters.
