The song "With You," from Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard's new score to the show, will be sung by the production's two leads, Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy, who play the iconic roles of Sam and Molly, respectively.

The EP will be downloadable from www.ghostthemusical.com and available on iTunes. According to press materials, Stewart is a long-standing ambassador for the international grassroots charitable movement Stand Up To Cancer. The new single will be the first-ever theatrical single to benefit cancer research.

Ghost The Musical will be working with Stand Up To Cancer on a number of initiatives to raise awareness and funding for the charity, including a planned gala performance of the show. In a press statement, Stewart commented, "What better mediums than music and the theatre to convey a message, as music lovers and theatre goers contribute to cancer research and offer hope for the millions of people surviving with cancer. We can beat this disease but it takes every one of us to get involved. One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetimes. We have all loved someone who has been touched by cancer. And by supporting Stand Up To Cancer in this way we can help change those odds."

Producer Colin Ingram added, "Many of the songs from our show speak about the loss of a loved one and with our composer Dave Stewart as a major creative force on the charity's team and the leading man of the original film, Patrick Swayze, losing his life to cancer, the partnership between the show and the charity seemed a natural fit."
