The soundtrack to "Crisis on Earth-X," this season's four-show DC TV crossover, will get a CD release later this month.
La La Land Records, a specialty record label that bills itself as "where soundtracks live" and has a significant DC Entertainment presence, will release the score from composer Blake Neely on May 22 in a limited-run CD.
The crossover specials are a highlight of The CW's broadcast season, and the last two years fans have petitioned to get a physical release for the "movies" on DVD. Producers reportedly looked into the idea for "Crisis on Earth-X," but were unable to do so due to contracts with unions representing some of the talent involved.
"Crisis on Earth-X" brought the stars of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow together to celebrate the wedding of Barry and Iris West -- only to have the wedding interrupted by Earth-X doppelgangers of several superheroes and supervillains.
Earth-X, a world in the DC multiverse where the Nazis won World War II and the Reich remained in control for decades after, also provides a setting for the popular animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray, which debuted around the same time as "Crisis on Earth-X" was airing on TV.
Battling their Earth-X doppelgangers over the course of two nights and four hours of TV, The Flash and Green Arrow both bounced back from it by celebrating a dual wedding, officiated by John Diggle.
La La Land also carries physical soundtracks for Arrow, Batman: The Animated Series, The Flash, and more. The Burbank-based label also releases digital soundtrack albums, which an be purchased through all the expected channels.
The "Crisis on Earth-X" soundtrack has not yet been released digitally. ComicBook.com has reached out to learn whether the physical release will mean a subsequent digital release for the album.2comments
