We are thrilled to announce the release of THE PROM (MUSIC FROM THE NETFLIX FILM), an album of music from the forthcoming Netflix film directed by Ryan Murphy and based on the hit Broadway musical from Bob Martin, Chad Beguelin, and Matthew Sklar. Available digitally December 4 and on CD December 18, the album includes all sixteen songs from the original musical written by Matthew Sklar and with lyrics by Chad Beguelin, each newly recorded by the film’s star-studded cast including Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Key, Ariana DeBose and newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman. Adam Anders and Peer Astrom, both longtime collaborators of Ryan Murphy and known for their award-winning music for Murphy’s hit television series Glee and American Horror Story,have joined songwriting team Beguelin and Sklar for the film soundtrack. Making its debut alongside album preorder is the new original track specific to the film entitled “Wear Your Crown,” an infectiously catchy song that captures The Prom’s feel good narrative – listen here.
Of the soundtrack, director RYAN MURPHY says, “This soundtrack is a moment for everybody to dance together all over the globe. It feels like a worldwide celebration of an idea and a hope for a different kind of world.”
