'Glee': Graduation Album Offers Preview of Season Finale Song List
Columbia Records will take advantage of Glee's upcoming graduation and issue a commemorative album featuring songs from Fox dramedy's upcoming episodes, including eight from its Season 3 finale.
Included on Glee: The Music, The Graduation Album are covers of Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days," Beyonce's "I Was Here," Madonna's "I'll Remember" and Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)," plus four more songs said to be featured in next month's season finale.
Available May 15, a week before its season finale, the 13-song release comes as the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk series continues to be a big performer on the music charts. The series has sold more than 43 million songs and 12 million albums worldwide, scoring three consecutive No. 1 releases with Glee: The Music, The Power of Madonna, Glee: The Music, Volume 3 Showstoppers and Glee: The Music, Journey to Regionals.
With graduating seniors played by Cory Monteith, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron and Harry Shum Jr. featured on the album cover, it also raises one big question: Where's Heather Morris' Brittany?
