Cirque du Soleil's Paramour to Release Cast Album
Cirque du Soleil's Broadway musical Paramour will be immortalized on a cast recording to be released later this summer. The album will be recorded on June 29 and 30, and will contain 10 songs from the show, written by Bob & Bill and Andreas Carlsson. It will be distributed by the Sony imprint RED.
