Ryan Gosling Is Still Just Ken — but Even More — on 'Ken the EP'

It includes three new versions of the 'Barbie' soundtrack hit

No, it's not the long-awaited second Dead Man's Bones LP — it's just Ken; it's just an EP. But still, the golden Ryan Gosling goose is good for the gander, bringing three new versions of the Grammy-nominated, Billboard Hot 100 Barbie hit "I'm Just Ken" to streaming services with Ken the EP.

The four-track collection sees Gosling reunite with Barbie soundtrack mastermind Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt, bolstering the original song with an "In My Feelings" acoustic version, a Purple Disco Machine remix and even a holly jolly holiday edition, "I'm Just Ken (Merry Kristmas Barbie)."

There's also a music video to prove that this Ken's job is festive, featuring Gosling and Ronson performing the new version in a studio with an orchestra and forlornly wishing Barbie a merry Christmas — wherever she is.

And somehow, that was Kenough.
