I haven’t seen the show yet, but I thought there was a big BAD ROMANCE number that opened the second act. Is it part of a sequence?

Yes! The tracks listed above are only the first 10 avail on iTunes. I presume there will be a bunch more.

Yes! It's a mashup of Bad Romance, Britney Spears' Toxic, and Sweet Dreams Are Made of This. From what I saw on iTunes, they're calling it "Backstage Romance," which is a reference to Christian (Aaron Tveit) introducing Act II by talking about a romance that had blossomed aside from his and Satine's.

That was fast wasn’t it? When did they record?

*The album doesn’t show up for me on iTunes searching Moulin Rough but it came up when I searched Aaron Tveit.

According the articles put out in early July, they recorded at the end of the month. So exciting!

After the annoyance of the Hadestown staggered release, I will wait until its complete.

For those of you who can’t wait, you can always just put on Pandora’s Top Hits of the 2000s station and have pretty much the same experience.

Maybe, but if the quality of the rest of the album is like the Sparkling Diamonds track they released maybe they should have taken the extra time. It sounds muddled and the lyrics are barely understandable.

I’m not sure what you’re listening to... it sounds great to me. Crystal clear.

Thanks for those of you who also thought the track sounded great. Reading here I thought something must be wrong with my hearing as I thought it sounded very good. :)

I have already pre-ordered, downloaded the Sparkling Diamonds Medley, and choreographed a whole drag routine to it in my head.

I don’t think it’s sacrilege to say that I like this version a little better than the original, and I love how Olivo can belt, but still have that smokiness that Nicole Kidman had.

Sparkling Diamond is such a head-spinning delight, and it's only one track! I've been listening to it on Prime Music all day. So excited for the eventual release.
