Jack Johnson sings for Curious George

Published: 2005-12-01
Jack Johnson isn't your typical triple threat. Unlike J-Lo and Hilary Duff, Johnson is a musician, filmmaker, and surfer. The multi-talented performer is putting together the soundtrack for the new children's movie Curious George.

The story of the curious little monkey will be released to theatres in February and will star the voice of Will Ferrell as the Man in the Yellow Hat and Jack Johnson lending his songs to George himself. George is a silent monkey, so Johnson had to dig deep to express the monkey's emotions through song. "Every time he gets in trouble, it's because he's trying to do something really good, but he's just misguided," he told MTV.

Johnson has written 6 of the 12 songs on the album, including tracks like "The Sharing Song" and "The Three R's," which are typical children's songs, as well as tunes like "Wrong Turn," which sound a lot like Johnson's 'adult' tunes.

After the George soundtrack, Johnson will go on a short European tour in March. Unfortunately, he won't be working on a follow up to his album In Between Dreams for another couple of years.

I love the soundtrack for curious george and i've been a long time fan of jack Johnson. I love the song upside down, but it sounds ALOT like Walk Alone, was it adapted from the song or is it just very similar :S

i can't believe he i so good at writing song for childeren but they sound just like his "adult" songs. his music is really calming and it really makes sense unlike some of the other song that are popular these days, he's really created his own genre of music . i wish that he would work on his new disc. HE'S THE BEST!!!!
