Song Premiere: Let’s Get Dirty by Dan Bern from The Stinky & Dirty Show on Amazon

StinkandDirtyShow

Amazon continues to provide cord cutting parents with smart, clever shows for their kids. With The Stinky & Dirty Show, they wisely hired the smart and clever troubadour Dan Bern to write the songs.

“The Stinky & Dirty Show soundtrack is a dream project for me,” Bern says. “I’ve always wanted to write songs for a cartoon, and my daughter loves the books. The scripts are terrific, the animation superb, and it’s a thrill to hear my songs in the show.”

This isn’t the first time Bern has written songs for families, releasing 2 Feet Tall in 2009. The show is based on the “I Stink!” book series. The cartoon features the voice work of Whoopi Goldberg, Jane Lynch, Andy Richter, Joan Cusack and Wallace Shawn.

Dadnabbit is proud to premiere the song “Let’s Get Dirty” and its crafty wordplay.

The Stinky & Dirty Show (Music from the Amazon Original Series) is available now for pre-order.

The soundtrack will be available for streaming on Prime Music in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria and Japan.
