The Polka King Soundtrack: Music By The Jack Black Polka Band Out January 5 (Pre-order Now)!

Randy and Meghan had a brilliant idea: let’s get the guys who played with Jan to play for us. What resulted was a magical two days of recording in New York City (in the same studio David Bowie and Queen recorded “Under Pressure”!!!). 

Lakeshore Records in conjunction with ShivHans Pictures will release the soundtrack to The Polka King, available digitally on Friday, January 5, 2018!  The album is a collection of classic polka songs re-imagined by The Jack Black Polka Band featuring members of the iconic Jan Lewan Orchestra as well as other prominent players in the scene. Music supervisors Randall Poster and Meghan Currier brought the original players, Lewan’s original arranger Stephen Kaminski and Grammy®-winning producer Stewart Lerman together to re-record their songs with Black. The Polka King was written and directed by Maya Forbes (Infinitely Polar Bear) and Wallace Wolodarsky* (The People vs. O.J. Simpson). The album was produced by Stewart Lerman and Randall Poster, and executive produced by Wally Wolodarsky, Maya Forbes, Jack Black, Shivani Rawat, Monica Levinson and Meghan Currier.  See the album track list and more below.

‘The D Train’ Soundtrack Is Out Now On Lakeshore Records – Download Here: [iTunes]

A Million Stars

If I am you, and you are me
Then I know the world will see
that I was weak
but now I’m strong
This will be a different song

So here I am
The better man
not the one you thought I am
and here we are, not the same
’cause tonight I win this game

So hold me tight
’cause a million stars could die tonight
and when they’re gone
there’ll be nothing for you to wish upon
a million stars depend on us tonight

I count on you
You count on me
Just this one please let it be.
And catch me if I’m falling down
One last chance to wear this crown

There’s nothing left for me to say
Dreams come true if we pray
I’m reaching for the milky way
A superstar is born today

So hold me tight
’cause a million stars could die tonight
and when they’re gone
There’ll be nothing for you to wish upon
A million stars depend on us tonight.
