The latest episode of “Riverdale” has finally gotten the Josie and The Pussycats on the stage to perform an all-new original song just for the said show. Prior to the release of the new episode, Warner Bros. uploaded a segment of the said episode featuring Riverdale High School’s favorite all-girl band. The video features them performing the original recording of the new song titled “All For Me”.
This was not the first time Josie and The Pussycats performed in the new “Riverdale” series. In fact, they have already been introduced in the series when they made a cover of the famous classic song, “Sugar, Sugar”. But “All For Me” is a special song because it is a new song, one that they collaborated with Archie Andrews.
Robert Aguirre-Sacasa, executive producer of “Riverdale” has said that this was the first time Josie and The Pussycats are doing an original song. They debuted the said song in Episode 3 of “Riverdale” Season 1, titled “Chapter Three: Body Double”. Aguirre-Sacasa added that though the song may be a bit less pop, which is different from how the Josie and The Pussycats from the original Archie Comics did it, the new song, “All For Me” showcases more of the actors’ voices and talents. He told fans to expect more original songs from the fictional band.
Josie and The Pussycats are composed of three female band members namely Josie McCoy, Melody Valentine, and Valerie Brown. Actors Ashleigh Murray, Asha Bromfield, and Hayley Law play the roles of the said band members, respectively. The band has a lead singer, bassist, and drummer wherein bassist Valerie is also the songwriter and backup vocalist.
“Riverdale” is a live-action television series adaptation of the Archie Comics but The CW has set the popular characters in a darker plot. The said mystery teenage drama series premiered on Jan. 26 and it has already aired three episodes. “Riverdale” Season 1 has been slated to air 10 episodes.
