Hunter Foster Featured on New Track on Footloose Cast Recording Rerelease
The disc will feature the entirety of the original cast recording from 1998 (out-of-print since 2003), along with "Still Rockin'" - a song cut from the show in its pre-Broadway run at the Kennedy Center and since reinstated to the score. The song was recorded this year by original cast member Hunter Foster under the supervision of original musical director, Doug Katsaros. The new release will also feature new album artwork by acclaimed Broadway graphic artist Frank "Fraver" Verlizzo.
Footloose features music by Tom Snow and lyrics by Dean Pitchford; the stage adaptation was co-written by Pitchford and Walter Bobbie, based on Pitchford's screenplay for the original 1984 hit film and its 2011 re-make. Additional music was contributed by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman. The album was originally produced by Tommy Krasker and Tom Snow, and recorded and mixed by Joel Moss.
