will.i.am composes ‘Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa’ soundtrack
Grammy-award winning will.i.am, frontman and producer of The Black Eyed Peas, is teaming with Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer for DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.
In addition to completing his first full-length motion picture soundtrack album collaboration, penning four brand new original songs (and the instrumental score), will.i.am will also be doing double-duty as the voice of a new character, Moto Moto.
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, the album, is set for a November 4 release in the physical and digital marketplace on the will.i.am Music Group/Interscope label. The movie, a Paramount Pictures release, opens nationwide on Friday, November 7.
