‘Glee’ Set to Release ‘Grease’-Inspired Album in November
Get stoked, Gleeks! 'Glee' is getting ready to tackle the tunes of the classic musical 'Grease' with the release of 'Glee: The Music Presents Glease.'
The McKinley High crew will release an album of covers from the 1971 musical next month, just before the 'Grease'-themed episode airs on Nov. 15. The 'Glease' compilation will showcase the talent of New Directions on songs like 'Hopelessly Devoted to You,' 'You’re the One That I Want,' 'Greased Lightning' and more.
Naturally the cast of the show will be fully represented on the release, but the album also features special guest Kate Hudson on the 9-song disc. Releasing on Nov. 6, the album will act as a sneak peek to the exciting new episode.
'Grease' debuted on Broadway in 1972 and was further made famous by the 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The film grossed nearly $400 million at the box office. 'Glee' returns with new episodes on Nov. 8 at 9PM ET on FOX.
