Flight Of The Conchords reunite to release charity single – watch
Jermaine Clement and Brett McKenzie team up once more on new track
Flight Of The Conchords duo Jermaine Clement and Brett McKenzie have reunited to release a new charity single – scroll down and click to watch.
The New Zealand comedy duo called time on their Flight Of The Conchords show in 2009 and have gone on to achieve individual success in Hollywood, with Clement starring in this year's Men In Black 3 while McKenzie bagged an Oscar for his work on the soundtrack to 2011's The Muppets.
On Friday (August 24), however, the pair joined forces to debut a new track titled 'Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)', which was released for Red Nose Day: Comedy For Cure Kids. You can watch the clip, which sees Clement and McKenzie recruit some schoolchildren to help write the track and then perform the song, below, and it is also available for purchase via iTunes and Amplifier.
Clement and McKenzie are currently midway through a Flight Of The Conchords comeback tour of New Zealand and Australia. In July, actor Rhys Darby – who played the duo's long-suffering manager Murray Hewitt in the TV series – urged them to make a Flight Of The Conchords movie because the world "deserves it". He said: "Hopefully the guys will work on a Conchords film because the world deserves it. That's up to them, because we're all keen to do it. It's about finding the time and the right story. All I can do is encourage them and then wait for the phone call."
Flight Of The Conchords began life as a radio series before being turned into a small-screen vehicle. 22 episodes of the cult TV comedy were produced, with show creators Clement and McKenzie playing fictionalised versions of themselves.
