Song previews, soundtrack news, and Cory interviews…to tide you over until “Ballad”

November 18, 2009

Matthew Morrison (Will) and Lea Michele (Rachel) share the spotlight with a duet in "Ballad."

Happy Glee day, all! To tide you over until “Ballad” airs at 9, here are some audio previews of tonight’s songs, the official track listing for Glee: The Music, Volume 2, and a few interviews featuring my favourite Gleekster, Mr. Cory Monteith. Enjoy, and see you all here tomorrow morning for my recap of “Ballad,” woo!

  • Want to hear all five songs from tonight’s episode (or at least all five songs that will be included on the new soundtrack, but more on that in a moment!) before they air? Check out this page on Glee Forum for a few audio treats! My personal fave is the first one. [EDIT!: At the time of posting there were only five songs on Glee Forum, but now there are six! And the new one has moved to the top, so when I said my personal fave, I am now referring to the second song. Except that I’m now listening to the new track and it might have stolen my heart instead!]
  • The official track listing is now available for Glee: The Music, Volume 2, and the album will be released on December 8, 2009 (if you’re keeping track, that’s the day before episode 13, the long-awaited “Sectionals”!) There are some fantastic songs on the list, as always, and I’m particularly intrigued by how the group will do John Lennon’s “Imagine,” which I’ve heard is going to be a real tear-jerker. It’s also been confirmed that this album will include songs from episodes 9 to 13, and thus this will not be the last soundtrack of the season!
  • Cory Monteith was in Toronto the past few days, and of course he did about a billion interviews while he was here. My favourite was his appearance on George Stroumboulopoulous’ The Hour, and when they upload that interview to The Hour‘s site, I’ll post a link to it here. Until then, here’s a few fun interviews with him from The Toronto Star, National Post, and The Canadian Press.
