Fall Out Boy stream Jungle Book track

Fall Out Boy have released their take on classic Disney track I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song).

It was written for 1967 animated movie The Jungle Book, and the new version appears on tribute album We Love Disney, which also features Gwen Stefani, Jessie J and others.

Pete Wentz tells Rolling Stone: “We wanted to come up with a song that would make sense as a Fall Out Boy song.

“We interpreted it more as a rock song, which was more of a challenge than expected – but I think how it turned out is pretty interesting.”

We Love Disney, the third album of its kind, is released on October 30 via Verve Music Group. FOB last week launched a remake of their track Irresistible, featuring Demi Lovato.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
