Songs from "Scandal: Music For Gladiators"

The September 3rd release date coincides with the DVD release of Season 2, also on September 3rd.

Creator/showrunner Shonda Rhimes contributed to the album's extensive liner notes, stating:

"During those four days [of writing the 'Scandal' pilot], the soundtrack of my writing was the funky, delicious music of the 1970s [...] It's the music that came after they killed Jack and Bobby and Martin and Malcolm [...] t's the music after Nixon disappointed a nation, it's the music of the sexual revolution and the feminist movement." 

With fans eagerly awaiting the premiere of the third season on October 3rd, 2013, you'll have a month to enjoy the soundtrack before then.
