Hollywood Records, the contemporary music label owned by Disney Music Group, will release the original Broadway cast album of the new a cappella musical In Transit.
The album will be released in digital and streaming formats April 28, followed by a June 9 in-store physical release.
In Transit has book, music, and lyrics by Academy Award winner Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Disney’s Frozen), James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan, and Sara Wordsworth. It features a cappella vocal arrangements by Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect, “The Sing-Off”) and music supervision by Rick Hip-Flores (Rocky).
In Transit, which played a successful Off-Broadway run, is described as a “funny and poignant new Broadway musical, [that] follows the intertwined lives of 11 New Yorkers faced with the challenges of city life. In Transit takes you on a journey with people hoping to catch the express train to their dreams—including the stops they make along the way. Modern yet timeless, In Transit is a story about all of us, set to music that will stay with you long after the ride is over.”
