Making Music with Muppets
Former Flight of the Conchord Bret McKenzie, 35, has written four original songs for the soundtrack of the new Disney film The Muppets, which will be released on 21 November. McKenzie is also the film’s music supervisor. McKenzie wrote ‘Life’s a Happy Song’, sung by Jason Segel, Amy Adams and new Muppet Walter and then as a full cast finale; ‘Let’s Talk About Me’, which Chris Cooper sings; ‘Man or Muppet’, a duet between Segel and Walter; and ‘Me Party’, a collaboration between Adams and Miss Piggy. Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton wrote about McKenzie’s participation: “You know he’s gonna make sure this thing is fantastic.” The Muppets is scheduled for release in the US on 23 November.
