Compilation by Various Artists
|First released||September 22, 2017||Tracks||18|
SpongeBob SquarePants: The New Musical (originally known as SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical) is a musical based on the television series of the same name. The musical follows the denizens of the fictional city of Bikini Bottom under threat of a volcano.
The music was mostly written by pop and rock artists specifically for the musical. The only songs not to be written for the musical are "No Control", a cover of a David Bowie song, and two songs from the TV series, "Best Day Ever" and its theme song.
The musical received twelve Tony Award nominations and critical acclaim, with particular attention to the song number "I'm Not A Loser", They Might Be Giants's contribution, sung by the character of Squidward and a sea anemone chorus line.
The song "Bikini Bottom Day", reprised on the soundtrack and throughout the musical, was written by friend of the band Jonathan Coulton.
The artists assigned to each song are the composers, not the cast members or the characters they portray.
