Fresh hot 90s nostalgia! Get your fresh hot 90s nostalgia here! Chance the Rapper has given his own taken on the Arthur theme tune with help from Jessie Ware and Wyclef Jean.

The lyrics and melody from the titles of the PBS cartoon, which is still shown on CBBC in the UK, are used in the laid back, trumpet-smothered track, which Chance posted on Soundcloud ahead of his set at Lollapalooza.

"Hey, what a wonderful kind of day!" forms its intro, while other memorable lines like "It's a simple message and it comes from the heart" are in there too.

The song was made with the help of a supergroup he calls The Social Experiment, comprised of Wyclef Jean, Francis & The Lights, Jesse Ware, Elle Varner, Eryn Allen Kane, The O'my's, Peter Cottontale & Donnie Trumpet.

Sadly there isn't a guest verse from Buster Baxter though.

Chance previously performed the cover at Sasquatch! Musical Festival, but this is the first time we've heard the studio version.
