At long last...
Varèse Sarabande Records to release the Arrested Development Soundtrack.
Varèse Sarabande Records will release the Arrested Development –
Original Television Soundtrack digitally and on CD on November 19, 2013.
The album features fan favorite songs and score from the four seasons
of the original series, composed by Emmy® nominee David Schwartz.
Arrested Development’s composer David Schwartz selected his songs and score from all
four seasons of the show, with a heavy dose of the original madcap songs and its signature ukulele tunes.
The soundtrack features exclusive extended versions of several key songs including “Balls In The Air,”
“Getaway” and “Shot By Love.” Also included are fan favorites “Big Yellow Joint,”
“Fantastic 4 (medley)” and “Motherboy.” These songs are hand-selected by
Schwartz based on fan requests through the years.
Created by Mitchell Hurwitz, the Emmy® Award-winning and critically-acclaimed comedy series
Arrested Development follows the wildly eccentric and entertainingly dysfunctional Bluth family.
The series is centered around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his eccentric family
comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his father George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor),
his mother Lucille (Jessica Walter), his brothers George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett),
Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) and sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay’s husband
Tobias (David Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat).
It aired on Fox for three seasons and returned for a 15-episode fourth season
exclusively on Netflix on May 26, 2013.
Arrested Development has garnered accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (Emmy®),
AFI, the Golden Globes, Producer's Guild Awards, Screen Actor's Guild, the Television Critics Association
and the Writer's Guild, among others.
