Posted on

Since the 2006 release of their film Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, Jack Black and Kyle Gass — partners in the much-loved comedy-rock duo — have been tantalizing D fans with the promise of another album. Now Black tells EW that the two have, at last, gone back into the studio to record some new songs — or, at least one new song. Tenacious D is hoping to get a tune into director David Fincher’s planned remake of the cult 1981 animated film Heavy Metal. “We’re submitting one song for Fincher’s consideration,” says Black, who squeezed in the sessions before heading off to England to shoot his next comedy, Gulliver’s Travels. “That’s a horrible scoop to give you,” he adds, laughing. “Now if the movie comes out and
