Last spring, it was announced that Brazilian bossa nova legend Sergio Mendes and pop music poison will.i.am were working on the score and songs respectively for the forthcoming animated film "Rio." And that was all we pretty much heard, but with the release date now around the corner, the full list of contributors has been revealed and while most of it is certainly stuff that would never appear on our iPod at least it's not a kids movie on a default musical setting of: Randy Newman.

Last spring, it was announced that Brazilian bossa nova legend Sergio Mendes and pop music poison will.i.am were working on the score and songs respectively for the forthcoming animated film "Rio." And that was all we pretty much heard, but with the release date now around the corner, the full list of contributors has been revealed and while most of it is certainly stuff that would never appear on our iPod at least it's not a kids movie on a default musical setting of: Randy Newman.

Interscope Records have announced the soundtrack to the film and it should have kids turning movie theaters into dance clubs (or jazz lounges). will.i.am, Jamie Foxx and Taio Cruz will melt our eardrums with new tracks that please the kiddies, while the adults in the room will thankfully have tunes by Sergio Mendes and Bebel Gilberto to keep things on an even keel. And hey, "Flight Of The Conchords" dude Jemaine Clement even gets on song on there as well.

The soundtrack will land in stores on April 5th, a week and half before "Rio" flaps its wings into theaters on April 15th. Full tracklisting below.
