Atlantic Records has announced plans for a musical companion soundtrack tied to Fosse/Verdon, FX's much anticipated new limited series from the producers of Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen and The Americans.
Each Tuesday, beginning with last night's series premiere, original cast recordings of the tracks featured in that evening's episode of Fosse/Verdon will be released at all DSPs and streaming services. The weekly releases will culminate with a full album, "The Music of Fosse/Verdon – Original Series Soundtrack," collecting all tracks released over the course of the eight-part series. Fosse/Verdon airs Tuesdays at 10 pm ET/PT on FX through May 28 (check local listings).
The first musical release from Fosse/Verdon includes three new tracks including Cy Coleman & Dorothy Fields' "Big Spender" (from Sweet Charity) performed by the cast of Fosse/Verdon featuring Bianca Marroquin (who co-stars in the series as Chita Rivera), Fred Ebb & John Kander's "Cabaret" (from Cabaret) performed by the cast featuring Kelli Barrett (co-starring as Liza Minnelli), and the "Fosse/Verdon Theme," composed by the series' supervising music producer, multiple Tony and Grammy Award-winner Alex Lacamoire.
Spanning five decades, Fosse/Verdon explores the singular romantic and creative partnership between legendary choreographer, director, and filmmaker Bob Fosse (Academy Award-winner Sam Rockwell) and Broadway's most celebrated dancer Gwen Verdon (4x Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams). "The Music of Fosse/Verdon – Original Series Soundtrack" will feature all new cast recordings from the series, spanning a stunning range of American musical classics from such milestone works as Damn Yankees, Sweet Charity, Cabaret, Pippin, Chicago, and more. The soundtrack lovingly honors these landmark songs' original versions. Carefully curated, expertly crafted, and dramatically performed, "The Music of Fosse/Verdon" serves as a remarkable tribute to Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon's signature sound, timeless style, and undeniable legacy.
The Fosse/Verdon[ musical releases are produced by Grammy Award winning (five-time nominee) Atlantic Records West Coast President Kevin Weaver and Atlantic Records President, A&R Pete Ganbarg, alongside the series' supervising music producer, multiple Tony and Grammy Award-winner Alex Lacamoire.
