David Bowie will reportedly be writing songs for the upcoming SpongeBob Squarepants Broadway musical. Alongside Bowie, other acts such as John Legend, Dirty Projectors, Cyndi Lauper, The Flaming Lips and They Might Be Giants. The idea of a SpongeBob music is intriguing on its own, but with all of these musicians on board it seems like something to look forward to.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the musical will first premiere for a short run at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre from June 7-July 3 before heading to New York for Broadway’s 2016—2017 season.
It seems surprising, but Bowie has partnered up with Spongebob creators before. In 2007, Bowie voiced the character of Lord Royal Highness in an episode of the classic Nickolodeon series.
