Andrew W.K. Teams Up with People Under the Stairs to Record Simpsons Theme
Published Dec 07, 2009There's no question Andrew W.K. has been busy enough this year, what with his improv piano work, anime covers, Exclaim! sleepovers and, of course, defending his identity, but the party-minded rocker just keeps piling on the new projects. Now it's been announced that the rocker has recorded a new version of the The Simpsons theme.
According to a report from LimeWire, W.K. paired up with underground hip-hop crew People Under the Stairs to record their version of the classic theme. Apparently, W.K. scats over a turntablist hip-hop track, and the song supposedly took a whole two days to perfect.
W.K. and the People Under the Stairs' collaborative Simpsons theme is set to air as the show concludes its 20th season this January. On the same episode, Coldplay's Chris Martin will contribute his voice-acting talents. So, really, it's like a weird Andrew W.K./People Under the Stairs/Chris Martin collaboration.
