Elektra Releases Smallville Soundtrack
By Brian Jacks


Elektra Records has announced that it will be releasing the CD soundtrack to The WB's hit television show Smallville. The soundtrack will also contain special features that will be enabled with the purchase of the Smallville Soundtrack: The Talon Mix.

Along with the songs, by purchasing the CD, fans can:

· Unlock online access to the sold-out first issue of DC Comics' SMALLVILLE comic book

· Preview chapters of the upcoming DC Comics’ Smallville novels from Little, Brown and Company and Warner Books

· Tour a 3-D interactive map of the town of Smallville, including the Luthor mansion, The Talon coffeehouse, the Kent farm and much more

· Watch VonRay's live performance of "Inside Out" and Remy Zero's HBO Reverb performance of "Perfect Memory"

· Collect one of three collectible trading cards—Lana, Lex or Clark—from the Smallville series

The collectors' assets will be made available exclusively on the February 25 CD release. Access to the comic book, novels and map will be made available through special CD key technology.

Among the artists included on Smallville Soundtrack: The Talon Mix are Remy Zero, creators of the Smallville theme song, "Save Me"; and VonRay, who contribute the album's first single, "Inside Out," (which was performed acoustically at The Talon in the episode "Ryan"), as well as songs by such acclaimed artists as Weezer, Ryan Adams, Sixpence None the Richer, Lifehouse, Five For Fighting, Phantom Planet, Eva Cassidy, The Flaming Lips and new Elektra artists Steadman (who will perform at The Talon in the episode "Fever," to air February 18) and AM Radio.

“The marriage of music and our shows continues to be a signature of The WB,” said Lew Goldstein, Co-President, Marketing of The WB. “This soundtrack is a tremendous opportunity to extend the authentic sounds of Smallville to a fully enhanced music experience.”

Elektra and The WB have worked in tandem with a host of other AOL Time Warner imprints, including DC Comics; Warner Bros. Television; Little, Brown and Company; Warner Books; AOL; Teen People; and HBO, to provide Smallville fans with a "once-in-a-lifetime musical experience driven by the show's intricate plot lines and innovative interpretation of the enduring Superman myth."

"Fans of Smallville have such a great enthusiasm for every aspect of the show including the music," says Brian Cohen, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Elektra. "Our goal was to provide for them the most meaningful fan experiences in conjunction with these great artists whose work has helped contribute to the mystique of the show. We've created the ultimate fan experience by adjoining an exclusive connection to the show's unique culture that is compatible with Smallville's inventive story lines and imaginative twists on a truly iconic set of characters."

The Smallville Soundtrack: The Talon Mix is solicited in the "Video" section of the January issue of Previews with a in-store date of February 25 and a price of $18.98.
