Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump chats about writing the theme song for Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends and examines his love for superheroes.
Patrick Stump may be best known as the lead singer of the rock band Fall Out Boy, but he’s also an accomplished composer in his own right. And now he’s added Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends, premiering August 6 on Disney Junior, to his resume. The story revolves around “Team Spidey” – composed of Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Gwen Stacy – and the heroes they team up with to help protect their community.
Stump was so inspired by the concept that he wrote the theme before his first meeting for the series. The Grammy-nominated artist was then given the honor of composing the music that would introduce not only Team Spidey but also their new friends such as Ms. Marvel and Black Panther. While it may seem a far cry from the songs that made him famous, his work with Fall Out Boy actually paved the way for scoring all manner of stories.
