The Official TV Soundtrack

Friday, January 30th, 2009

ncis_cover_myspaceAs was first announced on ncismusic.com in early December, CBS Records will release a specially produced soundtrack for the hit television series NCIS on Tuesday, February 10, 2009.   NCIS:  The Official TV Soundtrack is a 2 CD, 22-song set that features brand new tracks from Blue October, Oasis, Dashboard Confessional, Seether, Jakob Dylan, The Airborne Toxic Event, Saving Abel, Perry Farrell, Will Dailey, SKOLD vs. KMFDM (a specially produced version of a new recording, especially for this album) and electronica pioneers Nitzer Ebb, all set for prominent placement in NCIS episodes beginning in January.

The album is available for pre-ordering from Amazon.com by Clicking Here

The soundtrack also features NCIS stars Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto), who performs the self-composed “Fear” under the moniker Stop Making Friends, and Cote de Pablo (Ziva David), whose memorable performance of Tom Waits’ “Temptation” from the Season 6 premiere episode is included.  It is Perrette’s character, Abby, whose music sensibilities in the show serve as the basis for the soundtrack’s “Abby’s Lab” disk 2.

NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack also features recent tracks from Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Sharon Little, Keaton Simons, Collide and Android Lust – all utilized in NCIS episodes — as well as the show’s original theme by Numeriklab (available commercially for the first time) and a brand new theme remix from industrial music giants Ministry.

NCIS show producers listened to literally dozens of submitted tracks before choosing the ones best suited for upcoming storylines, and from which show writers could draw upon the music and lyrics for inspiration in writing episodes.  NCIS:  The Official TV Soundtrack stands apart from television show collections which merely compile a selection of songs that were heard in a series’ previous episodes.  Instead, as a result of the months-long creative processes, this collection features mostly brand-new and previously unreleased tracks that will be prominently integrated into upcoming series episodes.

Sharon Little – “Peppermint & Glue”

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

little_news_100pxBe sure to watch tonight’s episode of NCIS to hear a great featured use of Sharon Little’s song, “Peppermint & Glue.”  Less than a year ago, Sharon was a waitress in a Philadelphia coffee shop; within a few months, she had recorded her debut album for CBS Records and been hand-chosen by Robert Plant, Alison Krauss and T Bone Burnett to open every date on their Raising Sand North American Tour, on which she regularly received thunderous standing ovations for her soulful vocals and instantly memorable tunes.   Visit our media page to see a live video of Sharon performing “Peppermint & Glue” in concert.

Sharon’s “Peppermint & Glue” is available on the forthcoming album, NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack, which will be available in stores and online February 10th, and is available for pre-ordering now on amazon.com for only $9.99.
