story of Chris Evans’ Captain America–is one of the more successful attempts at musically spicing things up for the films, if only because people seemed to like its brief appearance in the first episode of Hawkeye. It even took off well enough that Disney brought it to its theme parks for the summer–which is why Disney’s now putting the album out on streaming.
Marvel released Rogers’ 12-track album at the start of the weekend, which comes from the most recent performance held at Disney’s California Adventure Park at the Hyperion Theater. The album is not only an MCU musical but also features five new songs created specifically for this production. Talking to Marvel, composer Christopher Lennertz (who previously scored both seasons of Agent Carter back in the day) called the creation as the new tracks “important…to continue the best of both Avengers and Broadway traditions. The score is full of memorable melodies, and the instrumentation matches the iconography of our hero.” This is a great for anyone who missed it when it was shown at Disneyland during the summer or for those who want to use it as a Halloween gimmick.
