Randy and Meghan had a brilliant idea: let’s get the guys who played with Jan to play for us. What resulted was a magical two days of recording in New York City (in the same studio David Bowie and Queen recorded “Under Pressure”!!!).
Lakeshore Records in conjunction with ShivHans Pictures will release the soundtrack to The Polka King, available digitally on Friday, January 5, 2018! The album is a collection of classic polka songs re-imagined by The Jack Black Polka Band featuring members of the iconic Jan Lewan Orchestra as well as other prominent players in the scene. Music supervisors Randall Poster and Meghan Currier brought the original players, Lewan’s original arranger Stephen Kaminski and Grammy®-winning producer Stewart Lerman together to re-record their songs with Black. The Polka King was written and directed by Maya Forbes (Infinitely Polar Bear) and Wallace Wolodarsky* (The People vs. O.J. Simpson). The album was produced by Stewart Lerman and Randall Poster, and executive produced by Wally Wolodarsky, Maya Forbes, Jack Black, Shivani Rawat, Monica Levinson and Meghan Currier.

Set in the the late 1970s, the film conveys the decade thanks to the spot on costume design from Kasia Walicka-Maimone and a fantastic soundtrack featuring songs from George Harrison, Ike and Tina Tuner, and The Doc Watson Family. Infinitely Polar Bear may take place in the 1970s, but writer/director Maya Forbes creates a timeless story of what it means to be a family – no matter what decade you are living in. –Film School Rejects

Pink Martini frontwoman China Forbes has written and recorded a song for a film, but not just any movie. Rather, her sister Maya wrote and directed the critically acclaimed new film Infinitely Polar Bear, starring Mark Rufallo and Zoe Saldana, which is based on the sisters’ life with their manic depressive father. The song itself is a sweet, gentle little tune, and Forbes was intent on making both the track and the accompanying video as personal as possible. –Popmatters
