MTV has learned that Warner Bros. has greenlit two separate records for Superman Returns: an official movie score by composer John Ottman and “Sound of Superman,” an album featuring contributions from various artists. Here’s a clip:
Jack’s Mannequin, the Academy Is … and the Receiving End of Sirens are among the artists contributing songs to the album, which, in keeping with the spirit of most “inspired by” soundtracks, features a mix of new tunes and covers. Jack’s Mannequin donate a new song, the piano-driven “Meet Me at My Window”; while TAI and the Receiving End went the covers route (both do versions of songs called “Superman,” by ’60s garage rockers the Clique and Stereophonics, respectively).
