If you thought Tiger King's success is momentous, the people behind the show are also getting it all. It looks like the band behind the songs featured in Netflix’s wildly popular Tiger King are finally getting their share of the spotlight.
Vince Johnson, one half of The Clinton-Johnson Band who wrote and performed the songs Joe Exotic tried to pass of as his own, has officially signed an exclusive worldwide licensing and distribution deal with BMG Rights Management and Create Music Group. The agreement covers such classics as I Saw a Tiger and My First Love.
The deal was signed with entity the Vince Johnson Band, not the Clinton-Johnson Band, as Daniel Clinton, Johnson’s musical partner, died last year of a heart attack. Under that name, Johnson is set to release a compilation album containing all of the songs he and Clinton wrote that were featured in Tiger King.
Johnson will release a few new tunes as well, including “Killer Carole,” which was uploaded to YouTube on May 23 and became available on streaming services today. The song stays within the style and theme of those featured in the documentary, bolstering the conspiracy that Exotic’s enemy Carole Baskin fed her husband to tigers over outlaw country instrumentals. In addition to the song, the YouTube video is also a music video of sorts, with stock images reflecting its lyrical content.
