Matt Nathanson has announced his new EP, Postcards (From Chicago), featuring songs from artists associated with the city. Today he’s shared his cover of Chance the Rapper’s “Same Drugs” featuring Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.
Patrick and Sean dive deep on how it felt to be reunited for “Lake Effect Kid” years later, how they met, how they’ve grown as creators and some fun things that you probably didn’t know about “Take This To Your Grave.”
The series features a stunning, original score by composer, and Fall Out Boy front man, Patrick Stump (Pacific Rim, Big Hero 6). “When I was a little kid, if you had asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would always say “Scientist,” without hesitation,” says Stump. “So to use my music to help tell the stories of these people who are essentially my heroes is very cool.”
Let Science Speak will inform and engage viewers about the importance of science in our ever-evolving world. Each episode features a scientist and their field.
Billboard sat own with Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy:
I’ve scored a few films and some shows; I’m not an old pro but I’m comfortable as a composer now. He’s the first director — or anyone involved in production I’ve worked with — who’s also a pretty great musician. It was one of the easiest I worked on because there were just language things… He was so quick to describing what he meant. It’s one thing to describe, say, chords: “Why don’t we go to a minor here?” But it’s another thing, not just knowing the nomenclature, to also know the purpose behind stuff. “Why don’t we try something like this here?” He has a very clear idea of what he wanted and it allowed me to just play.
Dana Schwartz, writing for Entertainment Weekly:
“When you’re doing a score, it’s kind of like acting, really, because you have to get in the head of a character,” said Stump, “whereas with Fall Out Boy, if I’m writing a song, I’m going to have to get on stage every night and sing that. It’s really for me. Writing a song is more — not selfish, but you’re focused on what you would want, whereas in a film you’re just focused on telling the story.”
Variety reports that Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy will be doing various voice-over roles in the upcoming animated film Gnome Alone. He’s also working on the score and has written an original song for the movie:
Patrick Stump of the band Fall Out Boy performed multiple voice-over roles, composed the score and has written an original song to be performed by Becky G, whose character discovers that her new home’s garden gnomes are not what they seem, she joins the gnomes to fight against little monsters who have invaded through a portal from another world.
From there, you’ll step into an entirely new ride vehicle. The changes start with its sleek, modern new look. Once on board, you’ll discover a brand new, in-seat audio system that booms an original ride score created by Patrick Stump, front man for the internationally-renowned rock band Fall Out Boy.
