With its two opening tracks sung by Fergie (Stacy Ferguson of the mega-platinum, two-time Grammy Award-winning group The Black Eyed Peas), music from the Motion Picture "Poseidon" will arrive in stores May 9th on A&M Records.
The soundtrack album precedes the May 12th opening of the action adventure Poseidon, directed by Academy Award nominated Wolfgang Petersen, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Virtual Studios and starring Kurt Russell, Josh Lucas, Richard Dreyfuss, Jacinda Barrett, Emmy Rossum, Mike Vogel, Mia Maestro, Jimmy Bennett and Andre Braugher. Fergie's two numbers, "Won't Let You Fall" and "Bailamos," are performed by her onscreen at the beginning of the film, as the sultry nightclub singer who entertains the New Year's Eve crowd aboard the ill-fated luxury ocean liner.
The Poseidon soundtrack will also include "Postales," the familiar electronica track composed and performed by DJ Federico Aubele, erstwhile member of Thievery Corporation. The other eight titles on the soundtrack comprise the original score composed and produced by Klaus Badelt, a prolific soundtrack producer since 2000, whose assign-ments have ranged from Gladiator and Mission Impossible 2, to Hannibal, Ned Kelly, and Constantine. Badelt's titles outline the action of the film: "The Poseidon," "The Wave," "A Map and a Plan," "Fire Dive," "Claustrophobia," "Drowning," "Don't Look Down," and "Escape."
"Won't Let You Fall" was co-written by Fergie and will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas, along with Keith Harris, Byron McWilliams and Ron Fair, chairman of Geffen Records; the track was produced by will.i.am and co-produced, arranged and conducted by Ron Fair. "Bailamos" was also co-written by Fergie, will.i.am and the Peas' Allen Pineda (apl.de.ap), along with Printz Board, Wayne Hector, and George Pajon, Jr.; the track was produced by will.i.am and Printz Board.
The music from the Motion Picture "Poseidon" soundtrack album was produced by Maureen Crowe. Executives in charge of music for Warner Bros. Pictures were Gary Lemel and Doug Frank. Executive soundtrack producers were Wolfgang Petersen, Duncan Hendersen, Kimberly Miller, and Christopher Brooks.
