Muse in The Jungle Book

Recommended Posts

So the Wikipedia page for the films says Muse will perforeme The Bare Necessities together with Florence Watch.

 

And there is this tweet:

Might be more believable if the grammar and phrasing in the entry were better? :chuckle:

 

Probably true.

 

It's late and I'm on my phone but yes.

I mean, a Florence/Muse teamup doesn't exactly sound outlandish on paper. In fact, it's something I've kinda wanted tbh.

 

 

 

 

But...for The Bare Necessities?

 

Ah fuck it, why not.

It will be the best artist they've collaborated with so I'm looking forward to hearing it if it is true!

That reminds me. Second time I need to be told this but what happened with that collaboration with the French singer? Wasn't that supposed to be out in January?

I never heard anything about it again. And being French, you think it would have gotten more attention with those rabid fans.

Or it came out, and their contribution was so miniscule it flew under the radar? Like those two guitar strums in that Kimbra song; except media made a HUGE deal about that.

No, it happened that apparently wasn't any collaboration at all. Some rumors said Farmer contacted Muse about it and they refused, but it's a bit unlikely in my opinion.

The very true fact is when during some interview they asked Chris if that collaboration was still on, he was baffled and asked: "Mylène who?!" and claimed that they've never heard of her :chuckle:

So, yeah, maybe it was all a fake.

 

Wikipedia says the song 'The Bare Necessities' will be sung by Bill Murray, not Muse + Florence :unsure:

It says nothing about Muse and Florence

 

At first I was intrigued myself, but then I highly doubt they would make a collaboration for that kind of cover. :LOL:

After some digging, Matt does know her but a collaboration was never planned.

Tom Hanks did not sing the songs his character 'sung' in Toy Story (although Pixar technically was a 2nd/3rd party then). But then again, these articles are so poorly written it's obviously not going to happen.

It's poorly tacked on at the end of this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bare_Necessities and apparently originated from some posts in a Florence fangroup. I saw some stuff on Twitter talking about the rumor.

 

It's also not uncommon that the character's voice actor would sing the song in the film, and there'd be a different version sung by a big artist in the credits, etc.

Highly unlikely they'd have a female sing the man-bear's part in the film. :chuckle:

Unless Florence's voice is supposed to be used for Mowgli. Female voices are used for portraying young boys all the time

Farmer claimed her love for Muse on several occasions. I recall her saying that "Muse" was "a great artist" on TV and mentioning that her favourite song was Guiding Light. :-]

And used to be extremely common in theatre, especially in roles such as Peter Pan.

To be honest Guiding Light seems to be the favourite song of everyone. Guiding Light should be the national anthem of every country.

I hope The Jungle Book and similar works heavily influence the next album.

 

If you mean "rehashed, old material" you'll probably get your wish in some form. :chuckle:
