A new documentary on pop music icon and WWE celebrity Cyndi Lauper is set to release Paramount+ next month. Paramount+ announced on Wednesday that Let the Canary Sing will arrive on the service on June 4th. The feature-length doc explores Lauper’s life and career, and is described as follows:

Produced by Fine Point Films and Sony Music Entertainment in association with Concord Originals, Let the Canary Sing chronicles Lauper’s meteoric ascent to stardom and her profound impact on generations through her music, ever-evolving punk style, unwavering feminism and tireless advocacy. The documentary takes the audience on an engaging exploration of a renowned and pioneering artist who has left a remarkable legacy with her art.

Lauper said in the announcement, “Over the years I’ve been asked to do a documentary about my life and work, but it never felt like the right time. Until now. When I first met Alison Ellwood, I knew right away I could trust her to tell my story honestly, which was incredibly important to me, and she succeeded in that. I’d like to thank Alison, the producers, and all of the amazing documentary participants who agreed to be interviewed!”

A companion album of the same name will also be released, described as “a career-spanning collection that follows Lauper’s career, starting from her days in Blue Angel to her breakout single “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” to the iconic pop stardom that followed. With hits ‘True Colors,’ ‘I Drove All Night’ and more.” You can see the trailer for the doc below:
