Petra Haden "The Superman Theme"
Published Dec 13, 2012This might be the strangest track you hear today. Petra Haden's upcoming album, Petra Goes to the Movies, consists of a cappella renditions of film scores, and now we've got her version of the classic theme from Superman.
Her "Superman Theme" adds a comical twist to the triumphant melody, and the high-pitched harmonies might bring to mind a choir of chipmunks. There's an accompanying video that isn't really a video at all, but a giant Superman logo that replaces "S" for Superman with "P" for Petra. This is accompanied by some written instructions to sing along with your neighbours.
Petra Goes to the Movies is out January 22 through Anti-.
