The Not Fade Away Soundtrack Announced, Available December 18th

Produced by Steven Van Zandt:
Music from the Motion Picture Not Fade Away

Featuring Music from The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan,
James Brown, the Rascals, Sex Pistols, and More

Not Fade Away, the widely anticipated feature film debut from The Sopranos creator David Chase is an ode to the transformative power of rock ‘n’ roll. In 1964, the Rolling Stones appear on television and three best friends from the suburbs of New Jersey decide to form a rock band. The film stars John Magaro, Jack Huston, Will Brill, Bella Heathcote, Brad Garrett, Christopher McDonald and James Gandolfini.

The film’s forthcoming soundtrack on ABKCO Records chronicles the sounds that inspired a generation to pursue dreams of rock stardom and glory. The soundtrack, set for digital release on December 18th, will be available at iTunes and all other digital download stores. Not Fade Away, a Paramount Vantage film, opens in select theaters on December 21st, 2012.

Because music is so central to the film, Chase worked closely with executive producer Steven Van Zandt in compiling recordings that are evocative of the era and propel the narrative of Chase’s screenplay. Van Zandt played Silvio Dante in Chase’s The Sopranos over the course of the groundbreaking series’ six seasons on HBO and in 2002, created “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” a nationally syndicated rock radio show on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. He is a long-standing member of the E Street Band.

Thanks to Van Zandt’s efforts, the film’s soundtrack includes music from the Rolling Stones, Bo Diddley, Bob Dylan, Sex Pistols, James Brown, The Rascals, Van Morrison, Robert Johnson, Elmore James and many others. The soundtrack album also includes several songs performed by the band members portrayed in the film by actors Magaro and Huston, who cut their own vocal tracks, which were produced by Van Zandt. Tell Me and Parachute Woman are two classic Rolling Stones tracks featured on the Not Fade Away soundtrack release.

Van Zandt commented, “David Chase realizes that in film, like Bruce Springsteen in music, the more detailed, accurate, and nuanced the personal vision, the more compelling the work ends up being. Helping David realize his vision was one of the most satisfying projects of my life. Watching these young actors meet every challenge we threw at them was also quite inspiring.” Chase added, “Music is obviously the soul of this film. And working on the music, especially with Steven, was certainly the favorite part. John Magaro and Jack Huston sing on these tracks and they really stand up.”

The ABKCO soundtrack includes the original versions of the songs that inspired the formation of the band whose story is at the core of the film, as well as music played by the band as heard in the film.
