David Bowie is just one of a number of notable musicians who will be providing music for the SpongeBob Squarepants Broadway musical, which is set to debut next June, according to Gigwise.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Bowie, Dity Projectors, Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, The Flaming Lips and They Might be Giants have all signed up to contribute original music for the production.
For those fortunate enough not to remember, Bowie previously voiced the role of Lord Royal Highness of the lost content of Atlantis in the 2007 TV Movie, SpongeBob Squarepants.
The new musical based on the cult children’s cartoon is set to make its debut in Chicago between 7 June – 3 July 2016, before heading to New York for a Broadway run between 2016-2017.
Bowie is also writing music for an off-Broadway production called Lazarus, based on his character from Walter Tevis’ ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth, which will be starring Dexter’s Michael C. Hall.
For those who are eager to add some value to their vinyl collections, Ziggy Stardust is also preparing to release an extensive run of beautiful vinyl re-releases.
