Fall Out Boy have dropped a suitably pop-punk cover of the much-loved I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song) from 1967 film The Jungle Book, which will soon feature on a new covers album of Disney classics.
Fall Out Boy’s on-point version on I Wan’na Be Like You (below) sees the group sing King Louie’s famous scat lyrics backed by distorted guitars. There are even multiple guitar solos thrown in to get everybody jammin’.
The cover will appear on the new We Love Disney compilation, which also includes Jason Derulo doing The Lion King‘s Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Jessie J taking on a track from The Little Mermaid, Jessie Ware covering a Cinderella song and Gwen Stefani going for a little something off The Muppet Movie soundtrack.
We Love Disney is due out on 30th October. Catch Fall Out Boy’s I Wan’na Be Like You cover alongside the full album tracklisting, below.
