Cast Album Previews!

Yesterday Disney released not one, not two, not even three but four preview tracks for the upcoming cast recording of Broadway's Aladdin!

First up Entertainment Weekly debuted Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed's beautiful rendition of the Alan Menken/Tim Rice classic A Whole New World along with Brandon O'Neill, Brian Gonzales and Jonathan Schwartz's hilarious performance of Howard Ashman/Alan Menken's High Adventure (I'm so glad they left in the "are we there yet" bit for the cast album).

Soon after Buzzfeed premiered two more songs, the new Alan Menken/Chad Beguelin duet A Million Miles Away, once again performed beautifully by Adam and Courtney, and Howard Ashman/Alan Menken's Friend Like Me, a show stopping tour de force by James Monroe Iglehart with the aid of Adam Jacobs and the entire ensemble.

So what are you waiting for?  Go and check them out!  And make sure to pick up a copy of the full cast album when it's released on 27th May (digital) or 17th June (physical).

I didn't post, or even listen, to these yesterday for personal reasons but I just want to say a big thank you to Adam and Courtney, you made me smile again, and to James, Brandon, Brian and Jonathan (and the entire ensemble in Friend Like Me), you guys made me laugh again and I just can't thank you enough.
