Along with all-new songs, Adult Swim also created music videos for Mastodon and Best Coast, and shot interviews with Best Coast and Active Child that will be featured on the custom website.

"Now in its second year, our downloadable singles program has proven itself a highly-successful vehicle to deliver great music and unique content to our Adult Swim fans, while also offering a custom opportunity for our advertising partner," said John O'Hara, executive vice president and general sales manager of Adult Swim and sister network Cartoon Network Ad Sales and Marketing.

"Music is the universal language, and has played an important role in the ongoing popularity of the funky Soul urban passenger vehicle," said Michael Sprague, vice president of marketing communications, KMA. "Kia is happy to once again partner with Adult Swim to share great music this summer as part of their popular download program."

In addition to nine sponsored weeks of never-before-released music from Kia, Adult Swim will cap off the tenth week of the program with a track from renowned hip hop artist El-P.
