A jammin’ hip hop spin on a classic song, “In the Summertime,” with rap lyrics, performed by teen actors Adam Hicks and Daniel Curtis Lee (of the hit comedy series “Zeke and Luther”), will debut as Disney XD’s summer anthem on SATURDAY, MAY 29 (8:00 a.m., ET/PT). The music video for the song, a cover of the instantly recognizable classic released in 1970 by British pop-blues band Mungo Jerry, will rotate throughout the Disney XD summer schedule.
Hicks and Lee’s remake of “In the Summertime” will have its Planet Premiere on Radio Disney FRIDAY, MAY 28. The music video will also be available on DisneyXD.com and the Disney XD YouTube channel on Saturday.
Featured in the music video are Disney XD stars Hutch Dano (“Zeke and Luther”), Dylan and Cole Sprouse (“The Suite Life On Deck”), Mitchel Musso (“Phineas and Ferb” and “Pair of Kings”), Doc Shaw (“Pair of Kings”), Ryan Newman (“Zeke and Luther”), Logan Miller (“I’m In The Band”), Caitlyn Taylor Love (“I’m In The Band”) and David Lambert (“Aaron Stone”).
“In The Summertime” was written by Raymond Edward Dorset, founder of Mungo Jerry. The music video was directed by James Larese of Syndrome, whose credits include music videos for Alicia Keys’ “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart” and Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok.”
The music video leads into a three-day holiday weekend marathon of the hit Disney XD series “Zeke and Luther,” “Kick Buttowski-Suburban Daredevil,” “I’m in the Band” and “Phineas Ferb.”
