ACCLAIMED OFF-BROADWAY MUSICAL

HADESTOWN

RELEASES LIVE CAST RECORDING

AVAILABLE OCTOBER 6 – DIGITAL PRE-ORDER BEGINS TODAY, AUGUST 25 

AUDIENCE FAVORITE
“ROAD TO HELL”
WILL BE AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY WITH PRE-ORDER 

Producers Mara Isaacs and Dale Franzen, and Brian Joosten from Warner Music Group, in collaboration with Ghostlight Records, will release the cast album for the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical Hadestown, recorded live during the original run of the show. The album is available for digital pre-order today, August 25th, and will be officially released on October 6, 2017.  Customers that pre-order the album will immediately receive the hit single “Road to Hell.”  To pre-order the album, please visit https://w.lnk.to/hadestownFor more information on the recording, please visit https://www.sh-k-boom.com/hadestown and for the album’s video trailer, please visit https://youtu.be/6FHjJDPCzyg.

Captured live during its twice-extended run at New York Theatre Workshop, Hadestown premiered at New York Theatre Workshop in May 2016. It played to critical acclaim and sold-out houses. This new musical written by celebrated singer-songwriter Ana├»s Mitchell and developed with and directed by the three-time OBIE Award-winning director Rachel Chavkin, follows Orpheus’ mythical quest to overcome Hades and regain the favor of his one true love, Eurydice. Together we travel from wide open plains where love and music are not enough nourishment to survive the winter, down to Hadestown, an industrialized world of mindless labor. Inspired by traditions of classic American folk music and vintage New Orleans jazz, Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and poetic imagination pit nature against industry, faith against doubt, and love against death.
