CBS Records will release a specially-produced soundtrack for the hit television series Hawaii Five-0 on Tuesday, October 4. Hawaii Five-0: Original Songs From The Television Series features brand new and previously unreleased tracks from some of music’s most popular artists – including Bob Dylan, Train, Goo Goo Dolls, The Swell Season, Switchfoot, Jimmy Cliff, Ziggy Marley and ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro – that are available exclusively on this soundtrack. The album can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.com.
Hawaii Five-0 producers listened to dozens of submitted tracks before choosing the ones best suited for this season’s upcoming storylines. Hawaii Five-0: Original Songs From The Television Series stands apart from TV soundtracks which merely compile a selection of songs that were heard in a series’ previous episodes. Instead, as a result of this creative process, this collection features mostly brand-new and previously unreleased tracks that will be integrated into upcoming episodes this season.
Of particular note from this collection is a previously-unreleased Bob Dylan track, “Don’t Ever Take Yourself Away.” This island-flavored gem dates from recording sessions in the early 1980s, and was newly mixed and mastered for this soundtrack after being locked in the vaults for nearly 30 years.
As Hawaii Five-0 Executive Producer Peter Lenkov explains, “Music plays a big role in our show, and we are thrilled that so many great artists have provided us with exclusive tracks that can be so well integrated into our second season episodes. As a result, fans will be able to experience a soundtrack album that is truly representative of Hawaii Five-0.”
The soundtrack also includes the first commercial release of the “Hawaii Five-0 Main Title Theme” that was newly recorded for the series launch in 2010. Also featured is a suite of the show’s score, “Book ‘em Danno” produced and arranged by Brian Tyler and Keith Power, which they assembled specifically for this album. Songs featured in show’s first season –“Closer” from Corinne Bailey Rae and Hawaiian standard “Hi’ilawe” from John Cruz – are also included.
Hawaii Five-0 airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The show is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new, elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the islands’ sun-drenched beaches. Nearly 12 million people watch Hawaii Five-0 on CBS each week, making it one of the most popular television shows in the country.
The complete track listing for Hawaii Five-0: Original Songs From The Television Series is as follows:
01. Hawaii Five-0 Main Title Theme
02. World Upside Down – Jimmy Cliff
03. The Best of Me – Goo Goo Dolls
04. Out of Control – Switchfoot
