Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, Don Was & more are in Amazon’s ‘Pete the Cat’ show
Pete The Cat is a new music-oriented animated children's show on Amazon Prime that's based on Kimberly and James Dean's acclaimed book series. Elvis Costello wrote the show's theme song as well as other songs in the series, and he and wife Diana Krall play Pete's parents on the show. They aren't the only musicians on Pete the Cat, either: Don Was voices narrator Neville, and KT Tunstall provides the voice of Catalina. Here's a little more about the series:
Along with his pals - Callie Cat, Grumpy Toad, Sally Squirrel, Emma the Quebecoise Pug, Gustavo the Platypus, Pete brings you along on their adventures. Whether learning to conquer his fears of the waves, meeting the new platypus on the block, starting a band with his friends or chasing a trick-or-treating ghost, Pete and his pals always try to keep cool, keep kind and keep rocking.
You can watch the trailer for Pete the Cat (which features Elvis Costello and Diana Krall talking about the series), and listen to Elvis Costello's theme song, below.
Elvis Costello & The Imposters will release new album Look Now on October 12 and will be on tour this fall.
Don Was is also 1/3 of Bob Weir & Wolf Bros, who are touring this fall too.
