“Everything Is Awesome”: Tegan & Sara and The Lonely Island collaborate on Lego song

on January 23, 2014, 1:25pm

Against all odds and logic, Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming The Lego Movie looks like it might actually be worth seeing. In addition to showing off the all-star vocal cast of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, the incomparable Liam Neeson, and just about everyone else , trailers for the flick have been teasing the unlikely musical collaboration of Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island.

The pop twins and the rap comics joined forces for “Everything Is Awesome”, and now a full version of the song has appeared online. Obnoxiously perky EDM beats pound away as the singers profess their love of all the awesome things in life, like “Skim milk, white bread, done my homework weeks ahead / skipping stones and best-friend bracelets / lemonade, I like to make it.” Essentially, it’s care-free dance music for ADHD kids, the ones who would have more fun tossing their Legos about than building the damn Death Star. Update: Listen to the full song here; it’s also featured in the trailer below.

Due out February 11th, The Lego Movie soundtrack also includes original contributions from Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh. It’s available for pre-order. Meanwhile, the film hits theaters on February 7th.
