Weeds Press Release

"Marijuana and music go hand in hand, and Showtime's
hit series "Weeds" has stepped right up to take
advantage of this relationship.

For season two of the show, "Weeds"' theme song,
"Little Boxes" by Malvina Reynolds, will be
reinterpreted each week by a different artist.
Musicians signed up for this cover extravaganza
include Elvis Costello, Death Cab for Cutie, Jenny
Lewis, the Polyphonic Spree's Tim DeLaughter, Regina
Spektor, Englebert Humperdinck, McGarrigle Sisters,
Tom Maxwell and Ken Mosher (formerly from Squirrel Nut
Zippers), and Ozomatli. There has been no word as to
whether or not these tracks will be released.

The second season of the series kicks off on August 14
and will feature guest appearances from Zooey
Deschanel and Snoop Dogg, who will play himself and
record a pot-related number on the show. "
