We recently reported on the fact that former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns has been busying himself in the studio with the likes of Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, homegrown pop sensation Sia, Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, and more.

Johns is currently serving as musical director and arranger on Beat Bugs, a new animated children’s television show which features a soundtrack comprised of Beatles classics, covered by more contemporary artists.

As a result, Johns has served as producer on more than 30 songs from The Beatles catalogue, in addition to contributing various character vocals, and composing some of the show’s original music. Oh, and working on his solo career too.

The series is now available on Netflix or you can watch full episodes via Plus7. You can also finally stream the entire soundtrack via Apple Music or check out an excerpt of Eddie Vedder’s cover of ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ below, which features two of grunge’s greatest frontmen together at last.
