There are so many facets to Bill Murray as an actor, comedian, devoted Cubs fan, and general all-around good guy that sometimes his genuine talent as a singer is overlooked.
Recently, he announced the New Worlds show, where he’ll be performing pieces by Stephen Foster and George Gershwin. Now, Paul Shaffer has given Murray another chance to show off his chops with a new collaboration called Happy Street. Watch the corresponding video above.
The cheerful tune is a cut from the former Late Night With David Letterman musical director’s upcoming album with The World’s Most Dangerous Band.
Celebrate the beauty of everyday life with your best ol’ pal Bill Murray and his jubilant new track Happy Street with Paul Shaffer.
Everything about Happy Street should bring a smile to even the most cynical person, as Murray’s warm voice celebrates how great it is to be alive.
Then there’s the video, which is a pure delight. Featuring colourful, animated visuals, it finds Shaffer catching up to Murray as they enjoy a stroll outside during a beautiful day.

Oh, and have this:
