New Line Records to release Sex And The City Soundtrack

Mumbai: New Line Records will release the original soundtrack to the feature film version of the HBO television series Sex and the City, which is due in theaters from New Line Cinema on 30 May.
 
Sex and the City: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will release 27 May and was created by music producer Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse, the Fugees), whose challenge, says the film’s writer and director Michael Patrick King, was "to create a soundtrack for the ultimate movie about love". Remi wrote a brand-new opening number for the film, Labels or Love, which is sung by pop superstar Fergie and re-imagines the series’ iconic theme as a fabulous pop song.
 
"I grew up watching Sex and the City," Fergie says, "and I know a lot of my girlfriends did as well. We felt like these characters were our friends, so to be a part of this project has been amazing. I’m such a fan of the show and am very flattered that they asked me to be involved."
 
The soundtrack also features a brand-new song from Oscar-winning diva Jennifer Hudson, who plays a personal assistant to Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah
Jessica Parker) in the film.
 
Hudson shows off her powerful pipes on "All Dressed in Love" (written by MC Jack Splash and Gnarls Barkley’s Cee-Lo Green), which plays over the end credits. "Jennifer makes it almost impossible not to dance out of the theater," King says.
 
The remainder of the Soundtrack is an eclectic mix of songs from such artists as Indie. Arie, Jem, Al Green and Joss Stone (with Stone’s vocal recorded especially for the soundtrack), and indie bands Morningwood, The Bird & the Bee, and The Weepies. The disc also includes classics from Nina Simone and Run-D.M.C. See below for the full track-listing.
 
"My hope for the soundtrack is that listening to the music will create a special memory for the fans," King says, "something to help them remember the movie about the love lives of their favorite girls: Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha."
