Midway has announced that Island Gold recording artists Saliva will rerecord the classic song "Theme for Peter Gunn" for its upcoming PlayStation 2 game Spy Hunter: The Return. The song appeared in the classic Spy Hunter game and was originally the theme song from the detective show Peter Gunn. Saliva will record two versions of the song, an instrumental and a lyrical version. Additionally, a music video featuring Saliva and behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions will appear in the Spy Hunter DVD featurette that will be available on the game disc.
"We are thrilled to work with a cutting-edge band like Saliva," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. "Saliva's fresh take on "Theme From Peter Gunn" is a perfect match for Midway's remake of Spy Hunter."
Acclaimed composer Henry Mancini created the "Theme from Peter Gunn."
