The Original Cast Album for the new Broadway musical SCANDALOUS: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson, starring now three-time Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello in the title role, is now available for digital download on iTunes and Amazon.com by Shout! Broadway (www.ShoutBroadway.com).

The physical CD is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com, with a physical release date set for Saturday, June 15.

Earlier this month, Carolee Carmello's performance was nominated for a 2013 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical.

Produced for records by David Lai and Joel Fram with Executive Producers Kathie Lee Gifford and Jeffrey Finn, the SCANDALOUS Original Cast Album is produced for Shout Broadway by Douglas Denoff and Dennis Grimaldi. 

SCANDALOUS, which starred Broadway favorite Carolee Carmello in one of the most celebrated performances of the 2012-13 theatre season, features book and lyrics by Kathie Lee Gifford and music by David Pomeranz and David Friedman.

The production, which played Broadway's Neil Simon Theatre last fall, also starred two-time Tony Award winner George Hearn (Sunset Blvd., La Cage aux Folles) as James Kennedy / Brother Bob, Candy Buckley (Cabaret, After the Fall) as Minnie Kennedy, Edward Watts  (Finian's Rainbow) as Robert Semple / David Hutton, Roz Ryan (Chicago, Dreamgirls) as Emma Jo Schaeffer and Andrew Samonsky  (South Pacific) as Kenneth Ormiston.  

SCANDALOUS is based on the life of Aimee Semple McPherson, the world's first media superstar -- a woman whose passion for saving souls equaled her passion for making sensational headlines and attracting overflow crowds of thousands throughout the world.

Set in 1920's Los Angeles, holiness collides with Hollywood in this extraordinary tale of one remarkable woman's charismatic rise to fame amidst scandalous love affairs and growing controversy, inevitably ending in her much-publicized fall from grace.  

Recorded and mixed by Isaiah Abolin and edited by David Lai and Isaiah Abolin, the SCANDALOUS Original Cast Album features musical direction by Joel Fram, orchestrations by Bruce Coughlin, dance and incidental music arrangements by Sam Davis and additional vocal arrangements by Paul RaimanHoward Joines is the music coordinator.  

The complete track listing is as follows:

"STAND UP!"

"MINNIE'S PRAYER"

"WHY CAN'T I?"

"HE WILL BE MY HOME"

"COME WHATEVER MAY"

"HE WILL BE MY HOME" (Reprise)

"THAT SWEET LASSIE FROM CORK"

"COME WHATEVER MAY" (Reprise) 

"HOW COULD YOU?"

"YOU HAVE A FIRE"

"FOLLOW ME" (Part I)

"A GIRL'S GOTTA DO WHAT A GIRL'S GOTTA DO"

"FOLLOW ME" (Part II)

"FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS"

"HOLLYWOOD AIMEE"

"ADAM & EVE"

"SAMSON & DELILAH"

"MOSES & PHARAOH"

"IT'S JUST YOU"

"LOST OR FOUND?"
