Vera Blue is a talent to watch.
Still only 23 years old the songwriter is being feted worldwide, with her label flying her out to Malibu last year for a full studio session.
The change of setting seems to have inspired her. While in the studio Vera Blue began to sketch out ‘Mended’, her most beautiful and fully realized pop gem yet.
The soundtrack for the Captain Underpants film adaptation is as outrageous and silly as the movie it accompanies. There are original compositions from Lil Yachty, Adam Lambert, and, of course, “Weird Al” Yankovic’s absurd theme song for the tidy whitey crimefighter. —E.R.B.
Nickelodeon Latin America and Telefe have inked a co-production pact with “Glee” executive music producer Adam Anders and Daniel Gutman’s 360 Powwow for the new music series “Kally’s MashUp.”
Created by Anders and Anthony Falcon, “Kally’s MashUp” is inspired by Anders’ own life as it follows Kally, a 13-year-old music prodigy who tries to balance her life as a piano virtuoso with that of a regular teenager, after moving from a small town to the most prominent music university in the country.
It’s the epic animated movie event of the Summer! From childhood books to the big screen, DreamWorks brings the “WaistBand Warrior” to life with a star-studded cast including Kevin Hart, Ed Helms, Thomas Middleditch, Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, and Kristen Schaal. Adam Anders and Peer Astrom along with Virgin Records produced a standout soundtrack with three original songs featuring Weird Al, Andy Grammer, Adam Lambert, and Nathan Willett from Cold War Kids.
The soundtrack is available for pre-order today, along with the first two singles, “Captain Underpants Theme” by Weird Al Yankovic, and “A Friend Like You” by Andy Grammer!
