De La Soul Record Playful New Song for 'Angry Birds' Movie

Rappers also to appear in bird form in app update

De La Soul has recorded an exclusive new track titled "Action" for 'Angry Birds Action!' and will appear in the app as birds.

De La Soul have gone from hanging with Gorillaz to flying around with Angry Birds: The rap group has recorded an exclusive new track for Angry Birds Action!, an offshoot of the popular bird-flinging mobile game. Here a sliver of the song, titled "Action," is at the tail end of the above trailer.

The app updated Monday with 90 new levels. For a weeklong event, De La Soul will appear in the game in bird form, with the rappers providing "special powers" to gamers. "We are fans of the game, so we were very happy to be involved," De La Soul's Pos said in a statement.

After a four-year near-hiatus, De La Soul has been prolific in 2016, first announcing their crowd-funded new LP And the Anonymous Nobody – currently due out in August – and preceding that with a surprise EP titled For Your Pain and Suffering in April.
