The Greatest Showman Cover Album Will Feature Huge Names In The Music Industry
The Greatest Showman soundtrack is being reimagined for a new album, and is said to have attracted big names from the music industry.
This new album is set to be titled The Greatest Showman Reimagined and will feature all new versions of the beloved songs from the movie.
Variety reports that Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Panic! at the Disco and other musically-gifted stars are putting their names to the 14 different tracks.
Speaking of this reimagined album, Panic! singer Brendan Urie told the publication: "Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are phenomenal writers. They sent that song over and said, 'We think you should sing this.'
"And I heard it and I was like, 'This sounds like a Panic! song. You guys did a Panic! song better than I've ever done a Panic! song. So I would love to'."
The track list is said to be be as follows:
- The Greatest Show - Panic! at the Disco
- A Million Dreams - Pink
- A Million Dreams (Reprise) - Willow Sage Hart
- Come Alive - Years & Years and Jess Glynne
- The Other Side - MAX and Ty Dolla $ign
- Never Enough - Kelly Clarkson
- This Is Me (The Reimagined Remix) - Keala Settle, Kesha and Missy Elliott
- Rewrite The Stars - James Arthur and Anne-Marie
- Tightrope - Sara Bareilles
- From Now On - Zac Brown Band
There will also be a couple of bonus tracks:
- The Greatest Show - Pentatonix
- Come Alive - Craig David
- This Is Me - Kesha
- Rewrite The Stars (Acoustic) - Zendaya
The reworked album will be released on 16th November by Atlantic records.
Atlantic's president, Kevin Weaver, who worked as one of four producers on the project, said that that it's taken almost three quarters of a year to create. Producers chose and matched artists to tracks based on their love and fit for The Greatest Showman's music.
While the movie struggled to bag itself some awards with critics pointing out flaws in its story, the film's fans continued to listen to the catchy tunes on repeat.
And some of the songs made it into the UK charts - 'This Is Me' made it to number three and Zac Efron and Zendaya's 'Rewrite The Stars' peaked at 16.
Now that even bigger musicians are getting on board to rewrite the album, it's pretty likely The Greatest Showman Reimagined will be a huge hit with fans of the tale.
