Daniel Johnston releases soundtrack to Space Ducks comic book/iPad app (ft. Eleanor Friedberger, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Lavender Diamond, and a bunch of ducks from outer space) | News Article | ... | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

Remember a few weeks ago when we told you all about how Daniel Johnston’s first studio album in three years was gonna be released in iPad app form as some sort of game in which you (presumably) do a bunch of Angry Birds stuff… but, you know, with ducks? And that it was all based around a comic book concept called Space Ducks: An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness that was unveiled at SXSW last month? And then you were worried slightly, because you luuuuuurve (with u’s and a v) Daniel Johnston, but don’t own one of those crazy-expensive iPad things and hate the abominable task of reading words and then associating those words with accompanying, sequential illustrations???...


The game’s “soundgrack,” (ya know, Space Ducks: Soundtrack) is also out NOW, along with the game and comic. According to Johnston’s peeps, it’s a “two part recording comprised of 7 new Daniel-penned songs including the title track ‘Space Ducks Theme Song,’ ‘Mask’ and tongue-in-cheek ‘Mean Girls Give Pleasure’, plus 5 new Space Ducks inspired songs written by Deer Tick, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Eleanor Friedberger, Fruit Bats and Lavender Diamond.” And who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to write your own song about the Space Ducks after listening to all this infinite musical greatness, just like Kurt Cobain did (he ended up calling it Dumb, for some reason)!
