Music World/Columbia Records Set To Release Cadillac Records

Music World/Columbia Records proudly announces the release of Cadillac Records - Music From The Motion Picture available everywhere Tuesday, December 2.

The keenly-awaited album of classic rhythm & blues covers and new soul sounds performed by Beyonce, Solange, Jeffrey Wright, Raphael Saadiq, Mos Def and others arrives three days in advance of the nationwide opening of "Cadillac Records, " the year's most eagerly-anticipated musical drama, on Friday, December 5.

Cadillac Records - Music From The Motion Picture is available in both a standard and a deluxe two-disk edition. Please see full track listing following.

Written and directed by Darnell Martin, "Cadillac Records" chronicles the history of Chess Records, the pre-eminent blues label of the 1950s and 1960s co-founded by Leonard Chess (played by Adrien Brody) and his brother Phil (Shiloh Fernandez). A powerful saga of sex, violence, race and rock & roll set in 1950s Chicago, "Cadillac Records" follows the turbulent lives of the American musical legends who recorded for Chess: Etta James (played by Beyonce Knowles), Muddy Waters (Jeffrey Wright), Little Walter (Columbus Short), Willie Dixon (Cedric the Entertainer), Chuck Berry (Mos Def), Howlin' Wolf (Eamonn Walker) and more. The film tracks the story of Chess Records, from the time the Chess brothers sold the label's first recordings from the trunk of their Cadillac through the company's emergence as the greatest repository of black American music - blues, gospel, and the electric blues that became rock & roll - in the mid-20th century.

"Cadillac Records" has been produced by Andrew Lack and Sofia Sondervan for Sony BMG Film and Executive Produced by Beyonce Knowles.

Cadillac Records - Music From The Motion Picture is produced by multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/drummer Steve Jordan (Eric Clapton, John Mayer Trio, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards) and Executive Produced by Mathew Knowles for Music World Entertainment, Inc. Marshall Chess, the son and nephew of the original Chess Records founders, served as Executive Music Producer for the soundtrack.

Cadillac Records - Music From The Motion Picture premieres five new recordings by Beyonce including her performance of Etta James' "At Last, " the album's first single.
