Atlantic Records to Release "HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH--ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING"; Musical Companion to Eight-Time Tony-Nominated Show Arrives Online at All DSPs on July 1 and Everywhere July 15

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Atlantic Records has announced the release of "HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH--ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING," the musical companion to the eight-time TONY-nominated show starring Neil Patrick Harris. The release comes fifteen years after Atlantic released the cast recording for the original production in 1999 and thirteen years following Atlantic's release of the original motion picture soundtrack for the film incarnation.

"HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH--ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING" will be available for pre-order at all DSPs on June 17 and for download on July 1. The album will be available at physical retailers beginning July 15. (See attached tracklisting.)

The album is produced by HEDWIG composer Stephen Trask, Tony Award nominated sound designer and platinum-selling record producer Tim O'Heir, and the production's music director Justin Craig. The album is executive produced by Elie Landau and David Binder.

In addition to Tony Award nominees Neil Patrick Harris and Lena Hall, the album also features: Justin Craig (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Matt Duncan (bass, vocals), Tim Mislock (guitar, vocals), and Peter Yanowitz (drums, vocals).

HEDWIG composer and album producer Stephen Trask said, "Anyone who has spent more than five minutes with me in the last three months knows how excited I am by the new versions of these songs. The talents of Neil and Lena and this amazing f*cking band have made these the best version of the score ever. After years of working with Justin Craig and a decade and a half recording with Tim O'Heir, producing these recordings as a team with them has been everything I could have hoped. I think we truly captured the brilliance of these great performers. If any band wants to learn any of these songs, these are the versions they should study."

Neil Patrick Harris' return to Broadway in the new production of HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, the musical with book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask, directed by Michael Mayer is nominated for eight Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival. The limited engagement, featuring Lena Hall (Kinky Boots), opened in April to rave reviews at the Belasco Theatre (111 West 44th Street).

HEDWIG has received Tony nominations for Best Musical Revival, Best Actor (Neil Patrick Harris), Best Featured Actress (Lena Hall), Best Director (Michael Mayer), Best Scenic Design (Julian Crouch), Best Costumes (Arianne Phillips), Best Lighting (Kevin Adams), and Best Sound Design (Tim O'Heir). In addition, the production has been honored with Best Musical Revival by the Drama League and Outer Critics Circle Awards and has been nominated in the same category by the Drama Desk Awards.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
