Rejoice, There's a 107-Track 'Bob's Burgers' Album
Featuring St. Vincent, The National, and more.
Bob’s Burgers is one of the most hilarious, charming shows on TV right now, and part of that comes from its delightful use of music. Now, to celebrate the soundtrack, they’ve collected 107 songs from the show into one massive release, The Bob’s Burgers Music Album.
The record, which will come out this spring on Sub Pop, includes classic Bob’s Burgers original songs like “The Harry Truman Song” (sample lyric: “And where is Harry Truman? / He’s dead in the ground / He’s dead in the ground / Dead dead dead dead dead”) and “Electric Love,” a romantic duet between Thomas Jefferson and a circus elephant he electrocuted. The main cast, including H. Jon Benjamin’s Bob and Kristen Schaal’s Louise, are on the album, of course, but so is a rock-solid list of guest stars. Comedians who have graced the show before, like Aziz Ansari, Bill Hader, Sarah Silverman, Fred Armisen, and Zack Galifainakis make appearances, as do musicians Cyndi Lauper and Carly Simon.
Perhaps the coolest part of the whole collection, though, are five professional covers of Bob’s Burgers tunes by big-name indie artists like The National, St. Vincent, and Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields.
The limited-edition deluxe box set comes with a hardcover lyric book, stickers, a patch, and special “condiment-colored” vinyl. It’s available for pre-order and will run you a nice $69. A digital copy is just $15.
Check out the full, massive track list over at Sup Pop, and look for The Bob’s Burgers Music Album when it drops on May 12.
