Shot in a real NYC classroom, the innovative 360° video produced for the BROADWAY production is one of the first of its kind on YOUTUBE or FACEBOOK. The video, was designed by WEBBER and "School of Rock" book writer JULIAN FELLOWES ("Downton Abbey") to take full advantage of new 360° technology, allowing you to navigate all angles of the classroom for an exciting and immersive experience of the song. The 360° video will accompany a new single of "You're in the Band" produced by WEBBER and legendary music producer, ROB CAVALLO, to be released by WARNER BROS. RECORDS.
ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER said, "I am proud that 'School of Rock' is not just the first musical to take this leap into the future, but that this video of 'You're in the Band' is the first time anyone has used the 360 degree medium in this way. It could open a lot of doors."
