"CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND" SOUNDTRACK RELEASED TODAY
Features Songs from Season One Performed by the Cast,
Including Rachel Bloom, Santino Fontana and Donna Lynne Champlin
Collection Contains 25 Songs, Including Five Original Demos
CBS Television Studios and The CW today announced the release of the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Original Television Soundtrack (Season 1 - Volume 1), the 25-song soundtrack to the first eight episodes of the acclaimed series. Featuring songs performed by cast members Rachel Bloom, Santino Fontana, Donna Lynne Champlin, Vincent Rodriguez III, Pete Gardner, Vella Lovell and Gabrielle Ruiz, the collection is available in both explicit and clean versions, with both showcasing five original song demos.
"The main songwriters of CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND - Adam Schlesinger, Rachel Bloom, and Jack Dolgen - knock me out every single episode," explained show co-creator and Executive Producer Aline Brosh McKenna. "The level of inspiration and flat-out funny is amazing. They are kicking out so much original music every week, it's staggering. Adam Schlesinger (Executive Music Producer) and Steven M. Gold (Music Producer) are creating songs in a dizzying array of genres and styles, and it is a real achievement. I encourage everyone to check out these tunes. They're catchy and funny, and they might also break your heart."
"Our songs are the heart of our show," said co-creator, Executive Producer and star Rachel Bloom. "They are the emotional tent-poles that represent every character's fears and dreams. There is no CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND without the music. From start to finish, the creation of each song feels like playing in the sandbox for all of us. Adam Schlesinger is a genius, and I can't believe I get to work with him every day."
"This is a dream gig for me," Schlesinger added. "I get to co-write lots of songs in lots of different styles with supremely funny, smart, talented people. And then have them performed by an amazing cast. And then see them on TV a few days later." He continued, "I wasn't sure it would be humanly possible to write as many musical comedy songs in as short a time as we did for this show. On Broadway, a show with even a dozen or so songs in it can take years to develop. When I look at the track list of our Season 1 compilation, I'm still not quite sure how we pulled it off. What's even more amazing is that none of them suck."
