 Coming May 1 – The Music of Smash Season 1 Soundtrack!

 

The highly anticipated album, available everywhere May 1, will feature stars Katharine McPhee (Karen Cartwright), Megan Hilty (Ivy Lynn) and other cast members performing the original music created for the show’s narrative and for the musical-within-a-musical.  

Highlighted on the album will be the Broadway-caliber songs written for the series by Tony and Grammy winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. The “Smash” album will also include some of the pop tunes that have been adapted for the show, such as Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful,” the show-stopping song that Karen sings so effectively for her audition that she is plucked, literally, from obscurity to audition for the musical’s starring role. 

Among the songs included on the soundtrack are the charming “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” sung by Hilty as the character of Marilyn and Will Chase performs as the actor playing her new husband, Joe DiMaggio.  McPhee got pulses pounding when she was featured in a Super Bowl promo spot singing the sultry “Touch Me.”  And one of the season’s most attention-getting songs has been the stunning “Let Me Be Your Star,” seen in the pilot and sung simultaneously by Hilty and McPhee.  In addition, Hilty’s show-stopping performance of “Crazy Dreams” will also be included on the soundtrack.

1) “Touch Me” featuring Katharine McPhee

2) “Stand” featuring Katharine McPhee and Leslie Odom
