This Is Us returns this September with a new season — and, hopefully, some answers about how Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) dies. But before that happens, fans will also have the chance to relive all of the teariest, most emotional moments from season 1. The show’s season 1 DVD arrives in stores Sep. 12, and is followed a few days later by the This Is Us official soundtrack.

Curated by This Is Us showrunner Dan Fogelman, the soundtrack contains 20 songs, many of which fans will remember from accompanying the show’s most emotional moments. The pilot’s use of Sufjan Stevens'”Death With Dignity,” for example, foreshadowed the show’s exploration of death, and now leads the soundtrack.

“It’s an emotional show, and these songs bring out more emotions under the scenes,” music supervisor Jennifer Pyken told EW.

Star Mandy Moore also has an entry on the tracklist, along with Paul Simon and Cat Stevens, among others. Check out the full tracklist below. The This Is Us soundtrack hits stores Sep. 15, and season 2 premieres on NBC Sept. 26.
