Slash To ‘Kick It’ With ‘Phineas and Ferb’ in Animated Video
As previously reported, Slash has contributed a song to the upcoming cartoon movie 'Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension.' Now, we learn that the tune is called 'Kick It Up a Notch,' and that an animated video for the song featuring a cartoon Slash will premiere July 22.
"I'm a big fan of 'Phineas and Ferb.' I watch a lot of cartoons and I think it's one of the best shows," says Slash in a statement. "It's well-written, very original and the characters are great. This whole experience has been surreal because I'm a big Disney fan. To be involved in this movie and having written some music for it is pretty exciting. It's an honor to actually be animated in the 'Kick It Up a Notch' music video."
The soundtrack drops Aug. 2, while the movie premieres Aug. 5 on the Disney Channel. The show's executive-producers, are psyched to have Slash contribute to the movie's soundtrack. "Slash is a rock icon, he's our hero," they said in a statement. "Slash saw the movie with his kids and he liked it so much, he said, 'Hey, let's write a song together!' It was really a dream come true."
The song 'Kick It Up a Notch' features music by Slash and lyrics by the show's creators. "I had a guitar riff and they came up with lyrics and melodies instantaneously," explains the former Guns N' Roses axe-man. "Kids will dig it 'cause it has a lot of energy and the song has a great hook."
