The new track from the pop rock band is a bit of a departure from their 1999 All Star hit.
Smash Mouth have released a new EDM track, Love Is A Soldier, and it's got people in a bit of a spin.
The Californian pop-rockers are best known for being our soundtrack to the nineties and noughties, with both their All Star single and their cover of The Monkees' I'm A Believer featuring heavily in the Shrek series.
However, the latest release from the Walking On The Sun outfit has had them sounding very different.
Watch the lyric video to Love Is A Soldier below:
The song, which appears to be the result of a collaboration with Specter, has produced a mixed response from fans, with others just hoping it means a Shrek 5 is on its way.
