Jack Black recently announced that he will create a new song as Tenacious D for Kung Fu Panda 4.
Black said, “We’ve been working on a couple of things. I got a new Kung Fu Panda coming out next year, and they asked if we would do a song for the credits.”
He continued on the success of Tenacious D, saying, “It was a real thrill to see it, to get into the ears and minds of people all around the world. I’d never really had that kind of an impact before in that space. I’m in a band and we’ve had lots of fun touring the world and playing music for years, but it hits different when you’ve got a bona fide hit that’s gone viral like that.”
He added, “And it was crazy. Everywhere I looked on social media, there was ‘Peaches’ and I was like, ‘Hey, that’s me.’ There’s a little burst of pride when you are part of the zeitgeist, as they like to say.”
Kung Fu Panda 4 will be released next year.
