Listen: The Roots Remix the Captain Morgan’s Theme Song

27 Oct

While The Roots recently announced that they were currently working on their thirteenth studio album, titled undun, it seems that the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon house band still has the time to do a remix the theme song Captain Morgan’s latest television commercial. The Philadelphia hip hop group remixed the track in their usual fashion, by completely reinterpreting and reworking it.

The Roots’ spin on the jingle comes in the form of “To Life, Love, and Loot,” which drummer ?uestlove explains “is part funk, but it’s also as aggressive a song can get with drums, guitar, and tuba. Lyrically, we figured we’d tackle the mission statement line by line. We touch on love and then you extend love to life, and then the love of loot. In this case buried treasure. We definitely had a visual pirate ship in our heads when we were doing this track.”

You can listen to the remix at, and the band’s upcoming album undun is due out on December 6th via Def Jam Records. As well, you can listen to “Make My,” the first single from the album, below.
