This certainly came out of nowhere – an unexpected press release from Hasbro Studios and Sony Music/Legacy Recordings announcing this Friday’s release of TRULY OUTRAGEOUS: A JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS TRIBUTE. It’s no secret that my wife and I are JEM fans and have been introducing the girls to that world, and with a live-action movie arriving on October 23, the buzz is building. Labeled as “A TRIBUTE TO STARLIGHT RECORDS” on its cover, this 12-song album reimagines music from the classic animated series, and is up for pre-order now on Amazon and iTunes as a digital-only release. Songs come from the 65-episode run on Hasbro’s JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, featuring songs from that band, as well as THE MISFITS and THE STINGERS.

The album serves as a true display of self-expression connected to music, a theme at the heart of JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS.”Hasbro’s Chief Content Officer Stephen Davis
