"We are incredibly excited to be working with Stage Rights and JAY Records as we continue our journey with Neurosis," said the authors. "We were humbled by the enthusiastic response to the Off-Broadway production, and it was wonderful to premiere the show with such an extraordinary cast and team. We are excited that their performances will live on through this Original Cast Album, and we look forward to seeing many future casts put their own unique stamp on this work in the years to come!"
