Earlier today, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced its nominees for the 57th annual Grammy Awards, which will be televised live on the CBS Network on February 8, 2015 at 8 pm ET. To be considered eligible for the 2014 award season, songs and albums must have been released between October 1, 2013 and September 30, 2014.
Walt Disney Records and VEVO have released the full audio track for ‘On the Steps of the Palace’ as performed by Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) from the deluxe edition soundtrack of Disney’s Into the Woods (December 25, 2014), which you can hear in its entirety embedded below. In addition, a related featurette has also recently been released offering a clip and some behind the scenes from the song in the film.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ today confirmed that its all-new short Frozen Fever, which welcomes Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf back to the big screen, will open in theaters on March 13, 2015, in front of Disney’s Cinderella, a live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale.
Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, and produced by Peter Del Vecho and Aimee Scribner, with an all-new original song by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Frozen Fever marks the first project reuniting the Oscar®-winning original team from Disney’s Frozen.
Walt Disney Records has unveiled the track listing for the four-CD collection that composes the next entry in the Legacy collection, the 75th anniversary of Walt Disney’s Fantasia, which is available to own on January 13 and is now available for pre-order. The collection consists of the original Leopold Stokowski Soundtrack, the digital re-recording by Irwin Kostal, the original score for the Deleted ‘Clair De Lune’ Sequence, 2 bonus tracks: ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ and ‘Peter and the Wolf,’ both read by Sterling Halloway, plus enchanting illustrations, original concept art and more.

If there is an emotion to be found in something, you can always count on Walt Disney Studios Japan to exploit it. In this case, they just published the Big Hero 6 music video for AI’s ‘Story,’ presented here in Japanese (if you want to hear the English version which has been released internationally, we have it here).
The music video, which features original animation, tells the message of the song as it applies to the film: when Hiro’s treasured relationship with older brother Tadashi is lost and he feels like he can never recover, he finds solace and a brand new relationship in Tadashi’s legacy, Baymax.
The official track lists for both the standard edition soundtrack and deluxe edition soundtrack for Disney’s Into the Woods (December 25, 2014), have been published on Amazon. Comparing the soundtrack listing to the original cast recording does present some changes, however: ‘I Guess This Is Goodbye / Maybe They’re Magic’ is not included here; ‘First Midnight’ does not appear to be included; ‘Careful My Toe’ by Christine Baranski has a track; ‘Agony (reprise),’ ‘Back to the Palace,’ and ‘Boom Crunch’ are all missing.
Last month, we told you about a limited edition bundle for Big Hero 6 which combines the Big Hero 6 soundtrack on CD (which is already available separately later this month — the digital release is already available), a 7″ vinyl single of Fall Out Boy’s ‘Immortals’ sporting the face of Baymax and an exclusive poster.
Today we have good news for those who aren’t married to the poster but want the 7″ vinyl — it too will be available a la carte. Amazon is now listing it for a December 16, 2014 release. Walt Disney Records has confirmed to us that it is the same vinyl that will be available in the limited edition bundle.
Featuring music by Kevin Kiner from all six seasons of the animated series, ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars,’ the official soundtrack will make its official digital debut on November 10, 2014 (or at least it’s expected as much, as per the new listing on Amazon). In addition, a special vinyl edition of the soundtrack from the first season is slated for a December 9, 2014 release. Although no official details have been released as of yet, we have reason to believe there will be a downloadable component to the soundtrack for those that do purchase the vinyl edition.
When the all new Frozen short, ‘Frozen Fever,’ was announced at the tail end of the tail end of the television special, ‘The Story of Frozen: Making An Animated Classic,’ speculation ran rampant that it would be attached to Disney’s live action Cinderella despite only being told it would arrive in ‘spring 2015.’ It was always our assertion that not only this would not be the case, but it hinted at a still possible home video release of a 3D Blu-ray for Frozen which we originally anticipated for this month (prior to the Sing-Along edition announced for November). While we were put on blast for being the site that cried wolf, new evidence points to this possibility.
As we previously announced on Twitter, Amazon has begun listing the original motion picture soundtrack for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014) with an anticipated release date of November 24, 2014. UPDATE: Disney has confirmed November 24 as the physical release with a digital release of November 4.
As we also confirmed last week, ‘Immortals’ by Fall Out Boy will be the end title track for the film and as a result, an official ‘music video’ for the song has been released. The single is also currently available on iTunes. You can watch the new music video embedded below.
