Disney Junior Music: Marvel’s SPIDEY AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS Digital Soundtrack Available Today – Music by Patrick Stump
Marvel’s SPIDEY AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS soundtrack is available today on Walt Disney Records. GRAMMY Award-nominated musician Patrick Stump, lead singer of the multiplatinum-selling rock band Fall Out Boy, wrote and performed the Spidey-friendly pop-rock theme song “Spidey and His Amazing Friends” (listen below) as well as “Time to Spidey Save the Day” (listen here) for the series. Stump, who serves as the series’ songwriter and score composer, also wrote four all-new Spidey-friendly pop-rock original songs inspired by the series for the soundtrack – “Super Hero on the Beat,” “Spin, Spin, Spin,” “The Trace-E Shake,” and “Super Hero.”
Stump said, “I’ve gotten so attached to these characters after writing all the music for the first season of Marvel’s SPIDEY AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS, so I jumped at the chance to write more songs for them.”
In an interview for Entertainment Weekly last June, Stump said, “I’ve been scoring for about five years. It’s my day job, but no one really knows about it. I’m the guy from Fall Out Boy and that’s usually what people think of me as, but I spend all day, every day scoring. I kind of assumed that they were going to like my theme song and then get someone that they prefer to score. But they offered me the chance to score a short demo reel kind of a thing, and they went for it and they hired me. It’s kind of the same feeling I had writing the theme song, where I’m coming to it with all this story and I get to write music for Black Panther and Ms. Marvel. It’s incredible, it’s the coolest thing.”
In addition to his work as lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist of Fall Out Boy, Stump has also composed original scores for several films such as GNOME ALONE for Netflix and the Tribeca premiered MARK, MARY & SOME OTHER PEOPLE. He has also worked as a producer, writer, and performer with a wide range of artists, including Elton John, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, and Bruno Mars.
