Disney has released a new music video for “Angel in Flip Flops,” which appeared on last week’s episode of “Only Murders In The Building.”
In the series, the “hit” song by Charles-Haden Savage, debuted at number 83 on the German charts in 1989! “Angel in Flip Flops” (written by Steve Martin and Kirker Butler, produced by Paul Schaffer) is also available for download on digital platforms, including Spotify.
Steve Martin (co-creator, EP and star) said:
“I’m as proud of ‘Angel in Flip Flops’ as any work I’ve done that isn’t so good.”
John Hoffman (co-creator, showrunner, EP) said in a statement:
“When the idea came to our writers room from Charles-Haden Savage, at the height of his success with his original ‘Brazzos’ series, perhaps after recording an album that did very well in Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall, we knew we had to talk about it more — immediately! And so we did — and when we shared this idea with Steve Martin — well, I think it was a day (if even? ) Before Steve had a title and song that crossed his genius mind and we were more than off and running Steve dove in with Kirker Butler to create a late 20th century classic, then, incredibly, Paul Shaffer came to arrange this classic which is now our “Angel In Flip-Flops”. We all hope for a renewed interest in the melody, of course – in Germany and in all parts of the world without walls!
“Only Murders In The Building” is available to stream now on Hulu in the US, on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ worldwide.
