With a Grammy statue tucked away in their doghouse, Baha Men are ready to sing about “The Best Years of Our Lives.”
The Bahamian group recently recorded the playful dance song in New York for the soundtrack to the upcoming animated film “Shrek.”
“The Best Years of Our Lives” will arrive at radio in April as the lead single to the soundtrack, which hits stores May 8. DreamWorks Records has not announced a full track listing for the project.
“Shrek,” a fairy tale about a green monster who sets out to find the perfect wife, features the voices of Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Mike Myers. It hits theaters in May.
Meanwhile, Baha Men have begun work on the follow-up to their breakthrough album, Who Let the Dogs Out (2000), whose once-ubiquitous title track won the Grammy for Best Dance Recording last week.
The group, which has already worked on several songs for the effort, will continue writing and demo-ing material while on tour with 98 Degrees and Dream in March, April and early May. The still-untitled album may appear as early as late summer, Baha Men’s Artemis publicist said.
