Brazzos’ big hit can now be heard in full.
Hulu on Monday released a full version of “Angel in Flip-Flops” from Only Murders in the Building, along with an accompanying music video featuring Steve Martin’s Charles Haden-Savage.
Written by Martin and Kirker Butler, and produced by onetime Late Show With David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer, the “hit” song was first introduced in the July 12 episode, when it was revealed that “Angel in Flip-Flops” peaked at No. 83 on the German music charts in 1989, shortly before the Berlin Wall came down.
In a statement, Martin says, “I am as proud of ‘Angel in Flip-Flops’ as I am of any work I’ve done that is not that good.”
