The album is currently available for pre-order at www.BroadwayRecords.com and will be available at BroadwayCon (Jan. 27-29, NYC).
Song of Solomon is an epic love story. In ancient Israel, King David's bloody wars are coming to an end, and the road is treacherous and uncertain for Israel's future. To avoid another war, Solomon is forced to marry foreign princesses. But one Israeli vineyard girl intoxicates the King's heart, threatening his entire nation. She suddenly and mysteriously disappears. Song of Solomon is the King’s quest to find Almah while he struggles for peace, redemption, and humanity. With music by Andrew Beall and lyrics by Neil Van Leeuwen, the original concept album stars Tony Award nominee Ramin Karimloo (and star of the new Broadway musical, Anastasia), Alison Luff, Casey Manning, Alexander Gemignani, Hayden Tee, Jessica Foster, Alessandra Baldacchino and Desi Oakley and a full orchestra. Produced by Michael Croiter and Andrew Beall. For more information, visit www.solomonthemusical.com, @sosnewmusical.
