Meghan Trainor to release new version of Friends theme for 25th anniversary of first episode


Meghan Trainor is releasing a cover of the Friends theme I’ll Be There For You to mark the 25th anniversary of the show’s debut.

The cover of The Rembrandts’ tune will air on radio station Z100 on Sunday (September 22, 2019) at 8.30pm eastern time in the U.S. – the exact time the first episode debuted on September 22, 1994.

The Empire State Building in New York will also be the backdrop for a music-and-light show set to the tune of the song.

Fans will be able to download Trainor’s version of the theme at midnight eastern time.

“I can’t believe Warner Bros. asked me to do this,” the Me Too singer said in a statement. “I’m so honored! I’m so excited that I get to be a part of celebrating such a legendary and iconic show like Friends!”
