Goo Goo Dolls' Rzeznik Writes Solo For Forthcoming Movie

The new Goo Goo Dolls album Gutterflower is due in stores April 9, but that’s not the only project the band’s singer-guitarist Johnny Rzeznik has been involved in. Rzeznik worked outside the framework of the band to score tracks for a forthcoming animated feature for Disney.

Rzeznik revealed he worked on two solo songs for the project. “It’s a movie called Treasure Planet, which is basically the story of Treasure Island in space. It’s really an awesome movie, such a cool movie, man. I was like freaking out when I saw this movie. Because I was like, ‘Oh, Disney thing. It’s an honor to do this, but I don’t want to be like, ‘Hakuna, matata.’ It’s like, ‘No. No, no, no, no.'”

Rzeznik worked in the Disney animation studios and was asked to write songs there on the spot while watching the movie. Rzeznik added that he wrote songs from the perspective of one of the film’s main characters,.

In spite of the solo work, the singer-songwriter revealed that Gutterflower and the band’s forthcoming tour set for April are his main priorities.
