It’s been a pretty darn eventful week for fans of Arrested Development. In just the last 48 hours, the show’s creator Mitch Hurwitz all but confirmed that a season five would be “definitely happening” and we discovered that the Bluth Company stair car makes a special cameo in the forthcoming film Captain America: Civil War.
Today, the Netflix comedy gets another pop culture nod in the form of “twentyfortyeight 2.0”, a new song from Willow Smith, produced by none other than Michael Cera. Yup, George Michael Bluth himself has hit the studio with Will Smith’s daughter — what a time to be alive! The track is equal parts dreamy and whimsical, and can be heard in full below.
The song isn’t exactly sad, but I just wanted to stick in this fun video for Arrested Development’s sake:
While “twentyfortyeight 2.0” is undoubtedly a left-field collaboration, Cera is no stranger to the world of music. In 2014, he released an album called True That; prior to that, the actor worked with The Unicorns’ Alden Penner, cast Kelis and Das Racist’s Heems in a short film, and toured with indie rock supergorup Mister Heavenly.
