Tegan and Sara‘s voices will soon hit TV and movie screens everywhere. The duo have just joined forces with The Lonely Island for the theme song to The LEGO Movie as well as Oreo to be the voices of Oreo’s Wonderfilled jingle commercial.

The theme song for The LEGO Movie, “Everything Is Awesome,” is a club-heavy track which features The Lonely Island comedian/bandmates Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, and Jorma Taccone rapping while Tegan and Sara assert, “Everything is better when we stick together” on the chorus. Listen to the song here.

The LEGO Movie Soundtrack drops Feb. 11 and also features music by Devo‘s Mark Mothersbaugh. The film hits theaters Feb. 7.

Tegan and Sara will also debut their Oreo commercial this weekend during the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The girls will be featured in the launch spot for Oreo’s limited edition flavors Cookie Dough and Marshmallow Crispy Oreo Cookies, which hit store shelves next month. Fans who tune into the commercial during the GRAMMYs will have the chance to get the first taste of the cookies via a one-time only hashtag.

Tegan and Sara aren’t the first artist to be featured in an Oreo commercial. Their jingle follows fellow We Can Survive performer, Kacey Musgraves as well as Chiddy Bang and Owl City.
