"Roadies" Soundtrack, Featuring Eddie Vedder, John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne, Available Digitally Now
Eddie Vedder, Jackson Browne, John Mellencamp and Lindsey Buckingham are among the artists featured on the official soundtrack to the Showtime series Roadies, which was just released digitally and will be available for purchase as a physical album on Friday, September 2. The record is made up almost entirely of new live performances by various artists, many of whom made cameo appearances on the show.
Music from the Showtime Original Series Roadies includes Vedder singing the 2003 Pearl Jam rarity "Man of the Hour," Buckingham performing his 1987 Fleetwood Mac hit "Big Love," Mellencamp singing his 2008 song "Longest Days" and Browne teaming up with alt-pop duo Lucius and Americana guitarist Greg Leisz for a rendition of Little Feat's "Willin'."
Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, My Morning Jacket, Robyn Hitchcock and Gary Clark Jr.
Roadies creator, writer and director Cameron Crowe explains, "Great care was taken that the songs chosen for each artist have another meaning, a thread to our story or characters. The only rule was: no lip-syncing to playback. Not even to live versions recorded in a previous take. These would be authentic live performances. Real performances. That's where the magic happens, for an audience and even a crew."
The finale of Roadies' debut season airs Sunday, August 28, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The episode will feature appearances by Browne, Vedder, Hitchcock, Lucius, Clark Jr., My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James and more.
Roadies, which stars Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino and Imogen Poots, takes a humorous look at a group of music-loving roadies and their lives working behind-the-scenes in the concert industry.
