(2/6/01, 6 p.m. ET) — Smash Mouth will be covering the Neil Diamond
classic, “I’m A Believer,” for the upcoming DreamWorks animated flick,
Shrek. The song will appear in the movie and on the accompanying soundtrack.
“I’m A Believer” is perhaps best known as one of several hits for ’60s pop
act the Monkees

. Smash Mouth’s own massive success story, the hit single, “All Star,” might
also be featured in the film, according to the band’s official website

Meanwhile, Smash Mouth is scheduled to return to Los Angeles this week to
rehearse new songs. The group plans to roll tape again on the follow-up to
its 1999 effort, Astro Lounge, as early as Friday.
