Now 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.
