NBC's Emmy and Golden Globe nominated drama "Heroes" returns for its third season on September 22nd.

The "Heroes" Soundtrack was executive produced by independent music veteran Errol Kolosine ("Six Feet Under") in collaboration with "Heroes" creator & executive producer Tim Kring and "Heroes" executive producer & director Allan Arkush ("Crossing Jordan," "The Temptations" and classic cult film "Rock 'n Roll High School!").

"We were so happy to be able to put together such a tremendous compilation of artists and sounds to reflect the power of the show," said Hill. "Several of the tracks will be featured in the third season and we know that 'Heroes' fans will love how these songs have been integrated into the series."

"The 'Heroes' soundtrack has been really fun to work on," said Arkush, "Getting all the demos of the songs by some of my favorite bands and following those songs through the recording process and final mix gave me a tremendous sense of accomplishment. This is the perfect time for the soundtrack to appear with the complete artwork," Arkush continued. "Steven Parke captured the visual style of the show and applied it perfectly to our artists. How great to have that famous Bowie photo rendered like a 'Heroes' painting! Music and Art heaven!"
