Mater's Junkyard Jamboree concept art

Disney has released a new video that shows Billy Hill and the Hillbillies recording songs for the soundtrack that will accompany the Cars Land expansion at Disney California Adventure.

The video, embedded below, shows the band recording instrumental tracks for the Mater's Junkyard Jamboree attraction. The ride will also feature a voiceover from Larry the Cable Guy, who provided the vocals for Mater in Pixar's two Cars movies.

Mater's Junkyard Jamboree will feature a total of seven original songs, and will use a ride system similar to the smaller Francis’ Ladybug Boogie in the park’s A Bug's Land section. Two variations of one of the songs are heard in the video, with one set to be used as background music throughout the Radiator Springs area. This will form the heart of Cars Land, which is due to open on June 15, 2012.

Anchored by $200 million E-Ticket attraction Radiator Springs Racers, Cars Land marks the final phase of a $1.1 billion series of upgrades to Disney California Adventure. The expansion will be home to two other rides (Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Luigi's Flying Tires, along with a number of dining outlets and retail stores. These will be arranged along a recreation of Route 66, as seen in Pixar's Cars movies.
