Despite the success of "Glee," the musical on the small screen is still untested, but NBC is giving it a shot with their more adult-oriented series "Smash." The show follows the production of a musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, and of course, all kinds of drama happens on stage and off. Granted, we've never watched the show, but not only does "Smash" have its fans, it has been picked up for a second season.

Despite the success of "Glee," the musical on the small screen is still untested, but NBC is giving it a shot with their more adult-oriented series "Smash." The show follows the production of a musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, and of course, all kinds of drama happens on stage and off. Granted, we've never watched the show, but not only does "Smash" have its fans, it has been picked up for a second season.

Part of NBC's game plan to continue the buzz for "Smash" is to release some of the songs from the show on iTunes right away, but if you'd rather just pick up the whole thing at once, you'll soon be able to. The official soundtrack will arrive next month, featuring 13 songs. Covers of Carrie Underwood's "Crazy Dreams," Michael Buble's "Haven't Met You Yet" (featuring Nick Jonas of all people) and the original "Touch Me" are featured along with two previously unreleased tunes: Katherine McPhee's takes on Florence + The Machine's "Shake It Out" and Colbie Caillat's "Brighter Than The Sun."

All of this drops on May 1st. Check out the full tracklist below. [Huffington Post/THR]
