Ruby Isle was up for the title track for the new Arthur remake that is coming out tomorrow. SPOILER ALERT! We didn't get it...
Up until yesterday we didn't have rights to the track, but the kind folks at Warner Brothers gave it back to us and we are dying to share it with you. It is actually my favorite Ruby Isle cover and believe me, we have done a lot!!!
For those unfamiliar with the song, it was originally done by Christopher Cross for the original 1981 movie starring Dudley Moore. It is an awesome yacht rock jam and perhaps the best part of it is the literal lyrics that basically tell the story of the original movie. We stayed pretty true to this one unlike the Guns N' Roses album we just did and tried to preserve the yachty-goodness with a touch of electronica.
I am both excited and scared about the new remake featuring Russell Brand. I really like him, but I also REALLY like the original movie. Anyway, I'll be paying to get in just like everyone else.
Here is the track, enjoy and let us know what you think!
