Glee's Warblers Release Album April 19th; Original Songs Sell Well
A couple of weeks ago, Darren Criss, who plays Blaine on Glee, revealed that his group on the show, the Dalton Academy Warblers, would be getting their own album. Now, the project has a release date -- April 19th -- as well as a track listing. Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers features all your favorite numbers by Blaine and the vocal group, from "Teenage Dream" and "Hey Soul Sister" to "Raise Your Glass" and "Animal" -- as well as some never-before-heard tracks.
One of those never-before-heard tracks is a cover of Rod Stewart's "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy," and the other is a version of Barbra Streisand's "What Kind of Fool," recorded live at last month's MusiCares Person of the Year Gala, which honored Streisand. Those are both exclusive to the album -- they won't appear on Glee. In addition, there's a version of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know," which we presume is from an upcoming episode.
Since debuting on Glee, the Warblers' tracks have sold 1.3 million downloads. Here's the track listing for Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers:
2."Hey Soul Sister"
3."Bills, Bills, Bills"
4."Silly Love Songs"
5."When I Get You Alone"
10. "Raise Your Glass"
11. "Somewhere Only We Know"
12. "What Kind of Fool"
13. "Do Ya Think Im Sexy?"
In other Glee news, the show's first-ever original songs scored big on the chart. "Loser Like Me," the cast's big Regionals number, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart with sales of 210 thousand copies. That's the Glee cast's second-highest first-week sales for a song ever -- only "Teenage Dream" sold more, with 210 thousand. The show's other original song, Lea Michele's big number "Get It Right," debuted at #6 on the same chart.
