Ahead of the release of Halston—Music From the Netflix Series, (out May 14), listen to the debut track, “The End,” by EMMY®-winning Composer, Nathan Barr (“Hollywood”, “The Great”) now at ComingSoon.net! See below for the album pre-save link and track list.
The smooth, ’80s-inflected synth score reflects both the sleek outer brilliance as well as the hidden inner conflicts of the ’70s fashion icon. The album also includes three original recordings performed by Broadway veteran, Krysta Rodriguez, who portrays Liza Minnelli in the series. Two-time Grammy winner Stewart Lerman produced vocals for all three tracks. Lerman has worked with artists across all genres including Liza Minelli, Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, David Byrne, Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, Regina Spector, and many more. Additional production on these tracks by The Math Club and Epidemic Sound.
Randy and Meghan had a brilliant idea: let’s get the guys who played with Jan to play for us. What resulted was a magical two days of recording in New York City (in the same studio David Bowie and Queen recorded “Under Pressure”!!!).
Lakeshore Records in conjunction with ShivHans Pictures will release the soundtrack to The Polka King, available digitally on Friday, January 5, 2018! The album is a collection of classic polka songs re-imagined by The Jack Black Polka Band featuring members of the iconic Jan Lewan Orchestra as well as other prominent players in the scene. Music supervisors Randall Poster and Meghan Currier brought the original players, Lewan’s original arranger Stephen Kaminski and Grammy®-winning producer Stewart Lerman together to re-record their songs with Black. The Polka King was written and directed by Maya Forbes (Infinitely Polar Bear) and Wallace Wolodarsky* (The People vs. O.J. Simpson). The album was produced by Stewart Lerman and Randall Poster, and executive produced by Wally Wolodarsky, Maya Forbes, Jack Black, Shivani Rawat, Monica Levinson and Meghan Currier.
