The album is currently taking pre-orders and will be released next month. http://www.sh-k-boom.com/war-paintSirius On Broadway is currently previewing songs from the album! Tonight, Seth debuted Patti's opening number "Back On Top," it sounded pretty amazing. Patti belts nonstop in the song, but it's the one number in the show where I struggle with her accent. Keep listening if you want to hear some!
Would love to hear, but don't have Sirius, can't wait for it to be released.
When does it come out?
Nice to see this is happening.

FinaleBook by Doug WrightMusic by Scott FrankelLyrics by Michael KorieStarring Patti LuPone and Christine EbersoleWell, seeing this news has been the high point of my life over these past few days!! We're going again; I hope they do the Tonys. Those sets and costumes are gorgeous.Patti LuPone was an absolute riot (w/Chris Meloni) on Andy Cohen this week.She takes no prisoners, and loves Rachel Bloom!
in case you missed seeing thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VCg0Kv2ypo
Digital release is May 26th
The costumes were gorgeous and attention to period detail meticulous, but I found too many of the songs unremarkable, at least on my sole exposure to them in the theater. Also, I could not discern at least half of the lyrics sung by Patti LuPone. That's as good a reason as any to give the songs another chance when the CD is released.
Although the show is hugely flawed, this is probably the one recording this season I'll listen to more than once.
As I predicted with Women on the Verge, I believe this score will grow on listeners with the advantage of listening to the cast recording. It's an intricate score with unfamiliar yet rewarding melodies. The majority of the lyrics are smartly crafted, and the orchestrations are lovely. I hear an amalgamation of Cy Coleman and Sondheim influences in the score, several of the upbeat "jazzy" numbers remind me of City of Angels.
I absolutely adored this score. I can't wait for the recording!
The clip of Patti recording "Back on Top" in the studio is great! She looks like she's having such a blast!http://www.playbill.com/article/war-paint-cast-recording-starring-patti-lupone-and-christine-ebersole-sets-release-date
Can't wait for this one!
saw this last summer in Chicago and thought it was just okay but very excited that this recording will serve as evidence of Patti's belting prowess into her late 60s as well as the terrific song "Pink."
The album is available on iTunes for pre-order, with "Back On Top" available now. It sounds great - and Patti is in top form.
They better include the lyrics with the CD. I watched the Playbill clip and only understood three words. DICTION PATTI!
Growing up without the best hearing, I always took special care to try to listen very carefully so I heard every syllable. I still don't hear very well, but now I feel like the care I took has helped me in ways people with regular hearing don't understand. When I saw War Paint, I understood virtually every word Patti said (yes there were a couple here and there, but people are making it out like she takes out dentures and sings the score toothless).
Ignore his vendetta against Patti. He's been bashing her since 2007.
I can't tell if Patti's accent is good or horrendous. But I appreciate that she went all out to play the character. I like how in the song when she sings "Top" the pitch goes down instead of up. Find it to be unexpected and helps build the character (which is more brassy/masculine than Arden) - and makes the last "Top" all the more satisfying. Enjoying many of the lyrics too. "my songs don't call, my husband cheats - now they can pay their own receipts" lol.
^^^^ I'm guessing that's "sons" not "songs", given the context of the couplet.Jesus Christ! My husband already hates LuPone; he'll never sit through that accent. (My graduate school advisor was from Poland, so it doesn't sound that odd to my ear. But those of you who are complaining should imagine discussing the finer points of Nietzsche with the woman singing "Back on Top".) I'll have to plant a speaker in the bushes out back in order to listen to the recording when it finally comes out.
Haha sorry, I meant sons.
Didn't mean to be a jerk, quolbinau. I thought it was amusing somehow.
I think that this is a score that people will learn to love with repeated listening. Korie's lyrics are wonderfully complex and I wish that they were more appreciated.
