Ryan Gosling is making a surprise appearance on the Barbie soundtrack - after the full tracklisting was unveiled on Thursday. 

The actor - who plays Ken in the upcoming film alongside Margot Robbie - is listed alongside artists including Dua Lipa, Ice Spice, Lizzo, Charli XCX and more. 

It's not Gosling's first foray into music as he previously co-fronted the indie band Dead Man's Bones. 

Gosling, 42,  also famously showed off his vocal talents in the Oscar-winning musical La La Land. 

It has also been confirmed that the following artists will feature on the Barbie: The Album; Ava Max, Dominic Fike, Fifty Fifty, Gayle, Haim, Kali, Karol G, Khalid, Nicki Minaj, Pink Pantheress, Tame Impala and The Kid Laroi. 

Alice Glass has also teased her goth-infused cover of Aqua's 1997 hit parody song Barbie Girl, which is expected to be featured on Barbie: The Album.

Three-time Oscar nominee Greta Gerwig directed and co-wrote the $100M-budget comedy with her babydaddy Noah Baumbach and they enlisted Oscar winner Helen Mirren to narrate the first live-action Barbie film.

'After being expelled from Barbieland for being a less-than-perfect doll, Barbie (Margot Robbie) sets off to the real world to find true happiness with a little help from Ken (Ryan Gosling),' the logline read.

Will Ferrell, John Cena, Simu Liu, Michael Cera, Alexandra Shipp, Kate McKinnon, Hari Nef, Issa Rae, Rhea Perlman, America Ferrera, and Emerald Fennell are also featured in the Mattel fantasy flick.

Lipa will also play a mystery role in Matthew Vaughn's amnesia spy film Argylle, which premieres later this year on Apple TV+.

The movie - based on Ellie Conway's upcoming novel - will also star Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O'Hara, John Cena, Samuel L. Jackson, and Ariana DeBose.

Barbie: The Album is scheduled to be released on July 21st.
