Bangles, They Might Be Giants Get Randy For New “Austin Powers” Soundtrack

With the soundtrack to “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” recently being certified platinum, thanks largely to Madonna’s “Beautiful Stranger” and Lenny Kravitz’s update of “American Woman,” you knew that plans for a sequel were inevitable.

That soundtrack sequel, titled “More Music from Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,” is due out on October 26, and as we previously reported, the album will feature a new cut “Get the Girl” from the recently reformed Bangles (see “Bangles Reunite For Beatles Gig, Offers Up ‘Austin Powers’ Song” ).

Esoteric rockers They Might Be Giants have also contributed a new track, “Dr. Evil,” with the soundtrack being rounded out by several vintage, shagadelic tunes, including the Zombies’ “Time of the Season,” the Monkees’ “Daydream Believer,” and the Guess Who’s original version of “American Woman,” among others.
