Walt Disney Records Releases 'Enchanted' Soundtrack Nov.20

Walt Disney Records will release the soundtrack for the new part animated, part live-action, movie musical, Enchanted, on November 20, 2007. The recording features songs by Academy Award Winners Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz with original score by Menken. Amy Adams and James Marsden (Princess Giselle and Prince Edward in the film) perform four tracks on the CD. Recording artists Carrie Underwood and Jon McLaughlin each contribute a recording.

"A classic Disney fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess (Amy Adams) from the past who is thrust into present-day by an evil queen (Susan Sarandon). Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer (Patrick Dempsey). Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?" explain press notes.

Enchanted is in many ways an homage to classic Disney films, beginning as an animated tale then turns into a live-action musical. Director Kevin Lima turned to the team of Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz (Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame) to create the musical journey for Princess Giselle.

Songs include "Happy Working Song", which shows Giselle utilizing her animal-charming abilities to help straighten out a messy apartment or "True Love's Kiss", a duet between Amy Adams and James Marsden that opens with a classic Disney-style fanfare.

Singer/songwriter Jon McLaughlin performs the song "So Close," offering an outer voice that mirrors Giselle's inner emotional journey.

Multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood collaborated with Menken and Schwartz on this version of "Ever Ever After" before going into the studio with her producer, Mark Bright, to record the song.

Walt Disney Pictures presents Enchanted in theaters on November 21, 2007. The Enchanted Original Soundtrack will be available November 20, 2007 at a suggested price of $18.98 wherever music is sold. All Walt Disney Records audio products also can be ordered by visiting www.DisneyRecords.com
