New Jarvis Cocker – “Fantastic Mr. Fox AKA Petey’s Song”
Jarvis Cocker’s in banjo wrangling, jaw harp twanging mode for “Fantastic Mr. Fox AKA Petey’s Song,” a playful song about vittles and the handsome little fox in Wes Anderson’s Roald Dahl-inspired, Videogum-beloved Fantastic Mr. Fox. Cocker voices Petey in the film, and that’s your first look at him above. George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, and Bill Murray also voice the stop-motion tale. Along with “Petey’s Song,” the soundtrack includes the Stones, Beach Boys, some Burl Ives, an Alexandre Desplat score, and a few other songs you’ve heard before.
The Fantastic Mr. Fox soundtrack is out 11/3 via Abkco.
