The fourth season of “Arrested Development” brought a number of alterations to the much-anticipated series: the fractured narrative, its single-character episodes, the ramped-up narration by Ron Howard. Even the show's music felt different -- its upbeat swing score higher in the mix and more noticeable in its presence. However, the mid-season pop gem, “Getaway” was a hilarious season highlight, and now the song, alongside the Bluth family's past musical output, is gearing up for release.

The fourth season of “Arrested Development” brought a number of alterations to the much-anticipated series: the fractured narrative, its single-character episodes, the ramped-up narration by Ron Howard. Even the show's music felt different -- its upbeat swing score higher in the mix and more noticeable in its presence. However, the mid-season pop gem, “Getaway” was a hilarious season highlight, and now the song, alongside the Bluth family's past musical output, is gearing up for release.

It's taken the occasion of the fourth season to do so, but recently composer David Schwartz announced (via TV Guide) that he's putting together a packed soundtrack for “Arrested Development” -- including selected songs and score from all seasons and promising a heavy dose of madcap ballads and ukulele themes.

Cuts heading to the soundtrack include a medley from Tobias' rehab-set Fantastic Four musical, an extended version of Season 3's power anthem, “Balls In The Air,” and much, much, more. "There are hundreds of pieces [that could wind up on the soundtrack], but I think I've cut it down to 40 or 50 so far," Schwartz says about the planned release. "I've received so many requests and now I'm trying to whittle it down."

A date hasn't been set for the soundtrack to drop, but Schwartz plans to release it for sure on iTunes, while also entertaining the idea of a vinyl pressing. Have a listen below to the expanded “Getaway,” pop star Mark Cherry's plea for the clingy Gob to leave his life, and drop in your essential selections that need to make the cut.
