Grammy nominated Texan pop punk quartet Bowling For Soup have released their brand new single “I Wanna Be Brad Pitt.” An ode to one of Hollywood’s finest actors, the song is a homage to Brad delivered in a way that only Bowling For Soup can.
The band’s Jaret Reddick explained their tribute to the actor, “Everyone who knows me, knows I love Brad Pitt. I got this chorus in my head while driving one day, and really, the rest kinda just wrote itself. I wanted the song to be a thoughtful tribute and not sacrifice the homage by making fun of him or things in his life. So that’s the direction I went and when it still got laughs from the band, I knew I had hit it out of the park.”
“I Wanna Be Brad Pitt” is the latest single to be released from Bowling For Soup’s upcoming new album Pop Drunk Snot Bread. Recorded in September 2021 in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, with longtime collaborator Linus Of Hollywood handling production duties alongside Jaret, Pop Drunk Snot Bread is the 11th studio album by Bowling For Soup and first since 2016’s Drunk Dynasty. Pop Drunk Snot Bread will be released on the 22nd of April 2022 through Brando / Que-So Records.
