Lakeshore Records will release the Peeples - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack EP digitally on May 7, 2013. The album features three new songs by Grammy and Tony nominated songwriter/producer Stephen Bray with performances by the film's Craig Robinson (The Office, Hot Tub Time Machine) and David Alan Grier (A Soldier's Story, In Living Color) along with original music by Aaron Zigman (Sex and the City, The Notebook).
Bray has written and produced many of Madonna's top ten recordings, including "Angel," "Into the Groove," "Poppa Don't Preach" and "Express Yourself." Bray composed songs for various multi-platinum artists including the Jets, Gladys Knight and Kylie Minogue. His co-composing work on the Broadway musical, The Color Purple, earned him both a Tony (2006) and Grammy (2007) nomination.
In addition to the new songs, the EP also includes two score pieces by Aaron Zigman. This Emmy-winning songwriter plants one foot in the world of pop idioms and the other in the emotional scope of a symphony orchestra to create narrative scores that complement each genre he's assigned-and with more than 50 film credits to his name, that has encompassed everything from the passionate romance The Notebook, to the fantastical animated adventure in Escape from Planet Earth, to Tyler Perry's comedy Madea's Witness Protection.
