Monty Python reveal new track 'Lousy Song' – listen
Track will feature on band's forthcoming 'Monty Python Sings' re-release
The track will be included on the comedy group's forthcoming re-release of their 'Monty Python Sings' album, and is a collaboration between Eric Idle and Graham Chapman.
Speaking previously, Idle said that 'Monty Python Sings (Again)', which will be released on June 9, would feature five new tracks alongside some of Monty Python's best known comedy songs. The album was first released in 1989 and features tracks from the group's films and TV work, including 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' and 'Knights of the Round Table (Camelot Song)'.
Monty Python, meanwhile, will play a series of reunion shows at London's O2 Arena this July. Although they were originally scheduled to play only one covert, they had to add an extra four dates after tickets for the first show sold out in 43.5 seconds. Idle will be directing the show. The show will contain new material as well as some "greatest hits" and material they've never performed live onstage before, plus animation from Terry Gilliam.
The troupe last performed live at the Hollywood Bowl in July, 1980. They last performed in London at Drury Lane Theatre in 1974.
