Carly Rae Jepsen To Cover “The Little Mermaid”

It seems like a perfect pairing. When Disney releases The Little Mermaid for the first time on Blu-ray this fall, the Diamond Edition will also include a special treat in the form of “Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen covering the film’s iconic song “Part of Your World.”

The recording by the GRAMMY-award nominated Jepsen will appear as a music video on the Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack releases.

Originally sung by singer/actress Jodi Benson in the 1989 film and thought of as the theme song to The Little Mermaid, “Part of Your World” didn’t receive an Oscar nod for composers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. Their two Academy Award-nominations ended up being for the songs “Kiss the Girl” and “Under the Sea.”

The Little Mermaid is set to be released on October 1, 2013.
