Producers Mara Isaacs and Dale Franzen, and Warner Music Group's Brian Joosten, in association with Ghostlight Records, announced that the cast album for Anaïs Mitchell's Hadestown is now available for digital preorder, ahead of an official release on October 6. Customers who preorder the album will automatically receive a free download of the "Road to Hell" number.

Recorded live during two performances of its twice-extended run at New York Theatre Workshop last year, the recording is produced for Warner Music Group by David Lai and Todd Sickafoose. Isaacs, Franzen, and Don Erik Franzen are executive producers.

Inspired by traditions of classic American folk music and vintage New Orleans jazz, Hadestown follows Orpheus's mythical quest to overcome Hades and regain the favor of his one true love, Eurydice. The New York Theatre Workshop production was directed by Rachel Chavkin (The Great Comet).

The cast features Nabiyah Be (Queen of the Night) as Eurydice, Damon Daunno (Brief Encounter) as Orpheus, Lulu Fall (The Great Comet) as a Fate, Amber Gray (An Octoroon) as Persephone, Patrick Page (Spring Awakening) as Hades, Jessie Shelton (Futurity) as a Fate, Chris Sullivan (The Knick) as Hermes, and Shaina Taub (Old Hats) as a Fate.
