Club Penguin and Walt Disney Records have just released The Party Starts Now, the first-ever EP from the #1 virtual world for kids. Featuring six tracks, The Party Starts Now, includes all of Club Penguin’s hit singles from throughout the year, as well as a new song and a never-before-released bonus track. The EP is now available wherever music is sold, as well as through digital retail including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
When released in fall of 2012, “The Party Starts Now” single held the #1 spot on the iTunes Children’s music chart for multiple weeks in a row and the corresponding music video currently has over 2 million views on YouTube. The EP will also include other top Club Penguin songs like “Ghosts Just Wanna Dance” and “Anchors Aweigh,” as well as the new track, “Puffle Party (Gotta Have a Wingman).” And for the first time, players will be able to own a copy of the never-before-released bonus track and YouTube song sensation, “Dubstep Puffle.”
Walt Disney Records’ single for Paperman is available digitally today. Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” “The Hangover” Part 1 & 2) composed the uplifting and light-hearted original music for the animated short film. “Paperman” is one of the ten films on the short list being considered for an Academy Award™ nomination.
“I tried to combine some traditional musical colors (like strings and harp) with more modern electronic elements in a way that felt sonically unique, while still evoking romance, longing, and a hint of magic,” said Beck. This was a great way to complement the mixture of old and new techniques in the animation.”
Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with “Paperman.” Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction. The short makes its theatrical debut in front of “Wreck-It Ralph” on Nov. 2, 2012.
