Varèse Sarabande to release Chuck
4-Apr-2015 -

Varèse Sarabande Records will release Chuck – Original Television Soundtrack
digitally and on CD April 7, 2015. The album features the show’s original score by Tim Jones,
with three performances by Jeffster, featuring Vik Sahay: “Take on Me”, “Fortunate Son,”
and “Fat Bottom Girls.” The digital version of the soundtrack will contain additional score tracks
and two bonus Jeffster songs, “Leaving on a Jet Plane” and the hilarious “Mr. Roboto.”

“Chuck was really a hybrid of many different genres,”
said Jones. “My instructions were to
bind them with a score that would bring together all the disparate elements. Nearly every episode
saw the introduction of a new sound or feel to match the action. It was a great deal of fun.”

Chuck was a beloved high-concept action comedy that followed Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi)
as the Buy More computer geek turned secret agent. When Chuck unwittingly downloads
a database of government information and deadly fighting skills into his head, he becomes the
CIA's most vital secret. This sets Chuck on a path to become a full-fledged spy, assisted by
the stoic Colonel John Casey (Adam Baldwin), Chuck's best friend, Morgan Grimes (Joshua Gomez),
and the CIA's top agent - and now Chuck's wife - Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski).
With the help of this unlikely team and his unorthodox techniques, Chuck is ready to take
Operation Bartowski freelance. Featuring an amazing ensemble cast and action unlike anything else
on television, there is no mission too impossible for CHUCK.

One of the fan favorite storylines featured Buy More employees Jeff Barnes (Scott Krinsky) and
Lester Patel (Vik Sahay) as the cover band Jeffster. When talking about the whirlwind that
formed Jeffster, lead vocalist Sahay (Lester) said “Well, initially, it came up as a wee subplot for
me and Jeff, in us wanting to play at Ellie's wedding. Once we had done a song or two, we
performed at Comic-Con. I feel like that really ‘made’ it for us. Something happened there
that is very hard to describe. Beauty and mania!”
Chuck is available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
