Listen to the new Once on This Island Broadway cast recording — exclusive
Do you want to be swept away from icy temps to a beautiful Caribbean island populated by gods and goddesses?
Now you can be with the new Broadway cast recording of Once on This Island, featuring the voice talents of Lea Salonga, Alex Newell, and other members of the Broadway revival cast.
The album will be available on CD and digitally beginning Feb. 23, but you can get an exclusive listen of the entire album right here at EW (below).
The show, which EW called a "joy-filled Caribbean escape," follows Ti Moune, an orphaned peasant girl who washes ashore in the Antilles during a massive storm. She is watched over by the gods and goddesses of the island, who, as she grows up and falls in love with the wealthy Daniel, begin to argue over whether to continue to help her. <iframe width="100%" height="450" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/playlists/447108783%3Fsecret_token%3Ds-bFeME&color=%23ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&show_teaser=true" class="" allowfullscreen="" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>
The new Broadway cast recording from Broadway Records is the first since the original Broadway and London cast recordings from the 1990 and 1994 productions, respectively, and it features the revival's new orchestrations.
The album will mark the 100th release from Broadway Records since the label was established in 2012.
Once on This Island is currently playing at The Circle in the Square Theatre.
