The single (to be released on May 22nd) is featured on Jack's new album Jack Johnson & Friends Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the film Curious George, which features songs written for and inspired by the new animated film 'Curious George' which is released in the UK on May 26.
Featuring the voice talent of Will Ferrell and Drew Barrymore, the film was produced by Ron HowardÂ¹s Imagine Entertainment.
This new album although tied to a film stands alone as a new Jack Johnson album - it features 9 new songs and 3 duets featuring Jack and Ben Harper, G Love and Matt Costa.
Faced with the task of giving a voice to a central character that does not speak, Universal Pictures turned to Jack Johnson to craft songs that could speak for Curious George. As a new father, it presented an opportunity for Jack to make an album for parents and children. Presented with early animations and the story line, Jack crafted new songs that captured the emotions of Curious George as he leaves the jungle to follow the Man with the Yellow Hat. He also turned to friends Ben Harper, G. Love and Matt Costa for songs that might bridge the gap between parent and child.
