Today, The Chattering Order of St. Beryl – a group of professional A cappella singing satanic nuns – have released a music video featuring GOOD OMENS co-author and showrunner Neil Gaiman. The video is being released ahead of the May 31 premiere of the Amazon Prime Video’s original series which was adapted from the cult-favorite book of the same name starring Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Jon Hamm, and Nick Offerman.
The nuns from The Chattering Order of St. Beryl are part of the marketing campaign from Amazon Prime Video for the highly anticipated series and pulled straight from the pages of the novel, where they played a key role in the course of events by mishandling the placement of the baby antichrist. As a part of the campaign, they are on a world-ending tour to welcome the Antichrist and herald the coming apocalypse (the premiere of GOOD OMENS on May 31, 2019).
The just-released music video for their original song “Brand New Baby Smell” hails the coming of the Anti-Christ with clues and hidden symbols sure to delight and intrigue GOOD OMENS fans around the world. The video also includes the official reveal of the Twitter crowd-sourced name for the Order’s all-important goat. “Brand New Baby Smell” was written and directed by Hal Kirkland and arranged by “father of contemporary a cappella” Deke Sharon of the Pitch Perfect films.
GOOD OMENS is based on the beloved book by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman which follows an unlikely duo, a fussy Angel (Michael Sheen) and a loose-living Demon (David Tennant) who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.
