‘Glee’ Gives The Warblers Their Own Album

The Warblers Glee Darren Criss Hey Soul SisterNow that the glee club playing friendly rival to Glee‘s New Directions has a pretty sizable catalog of their own (and a fan club for their star singer) it only makes sense that the people behind the show would take the opportunity to make a nice chunk of change. In addition to the series of albums spawned by the show’s unrelenting success, Glee will now release an album that consists solely of songs crooned by Darren Criss, Chris Colfer and the rest of the Dalton Warblers.

The Warblers’ first “hit” was already a charts success; their version of “Teenage Dream” claimed the spot on the Billboard Top 100. Naturally they need their own album. The cash cow will include all the Warblers’ “classics” including “Teenage Dream” and “Hey, Soul Sister” as well as upcoming renditions of Maroon 5’s “Misery” and Pink’s “Raise Your Glass.”

I’ll admit, I’m sort of becoming a Warbler fan because when they’re on they’re ON. To be fair though, when they’re off, they’re way, way, way off. Did you see “Bills, Bills, Bills?” To put it lightly, it sucked. (I’m sure I’ll get some heat for that comment, but I stand by it.) You can expect that awful cover and all the other Warbler tunes when the album is released in April.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
