Walt Disney Records is set to release the soundtrack to 'Phineas and Ferb Across: The 1st and 2nd Dimensions,' on August 2. The disc features seven new tracks and also includes 15 songs from the hit animated series. The Disney Channel Original Movie 'Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension' premieres on August 5 on Disney Channel: August 13, on Disney XD: and also on the ABC Television Network [date TBD].
You might be wondering why Noisecreep would even be mentioning 'Phineas and Ferb' here, but the new soundtrack features a song that caught our eye. The end credit track, 'Kick It Up a Notch,' features none other than Slash. Yes, we had to do a double-take ourselves. On the collaboration with Slash, executive producer Dan Povenmire offered, "Slash is a rock icon, he's our hero. We wanted a song that encapsulated the feeling of the series as well as the movie. Slash saw the movie with his kids and he liked it so much, he said, "Hey, let's write a song together!" It was really a dream come true." Noisecreep is excited to exclusively premiere 'Kick It Up a Notch' today.
The 'Kick It Up a Notch' music video opens with a live-action segment of Slash plugging his Gibson Les Paul guitar into an amp. An electric current travels through the wire and Slash becomes animated and is joined on stage by Phineas and Ferb. The video will debut July 22nd on Disney Channel.
In this animated adventure -- based on Disney Channel's Emmy Award-winning comedy series "Phineas and Ferb" -- stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb go on their biggest journey yet, into another dimension! When the boys finally discover that their beloved pet platypus Perry is in fact a secret agent who battles the forces of evil daily, they join him on a grand adventure that blasts them to another dimension where a truly evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz has taken over an alternate Tri-state Area. When they uncover his ploy to travel back to their dimension to take over their Tri-state Area, the gang, as well as their alter-egos, must band together to stop him.
Povenmire and fellow producer Jeff 'Swampy' Marsh said, "We're thrilled about the music in 'Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension.' Music plays a big role in the movie just like the series. We always try to pepper in songs whenever we can to hook the audience in and a song gets you emotionally a lot quicker sometimes than dialogue would. It¹s part of what makes things memorable about the show."
