INCLUDES DIALOGUE FROM KENNY POWERS & OTHER FAVORITE CHARACTERS
PLUS LINER NOTES BY SIDEKICK STEVIE JANOWSKI
“When my ass was 19 years old, I changed the face of professional baseball. Everyone wanted a piece of my s#*t. Just a man with a mind for victory and an arm like a f@^%*ing cannon. But sometimes when you bring the thunder, you get lost in the storm.”– Kenny Powers
“Each track is hand-picked by The Man himself. That’s right. This is the music that Kenny Powers rocks out to when he’s getting ready in the morning. This is the music Kenny Powers listens to in the late hours, when the night terrors come and we are all children again.” – Stevie Janowski
Anyone who was wondering when the ultimate mix tape of the new millennium would finally show up need wonder no longer: It’s here.
Or it will be, on April 24 when Fat Possum Records scores big with the two-disc release of the Eastbound & Down Soundtrack, a collection of straight up classics – old and new alike – handpicked by the man, the myth, and legend in his own mind Kenny Powers, who drops over-the-top nuggets of wisdom that will be prized as much as the music on this high-energy compilation. And that’s saying loads since the soundtrack, which includes music and dialogue from the show’s three seasons, features primo jams from top shelfers like The Black Keys, Too $hort, The Stooges, MC5, R.L. Burnside, Kenny Rogers and Lee Hazlewood. On top of all that, the record’s liner notes are written by Kenny’s own personal boy wonder and sidekick, Stevie Janowski.
HBO’s raucous comedy Eastbound & Down is the story of the rise and fall (and fall, and fall…) of former pitcher Kenny Powers as he navigates life after the Big Leagues as a washed up baseball star who hasn’t come to grips with the “washed up” part yet. With an insufferable ego, self-destructive behavior and penchant for profanity, Powers (played to perfection by Danny McBride), is often unlovable, but always entertaining. From the twisted comedic minds of executive producers Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy, Adam McKay, Jody Hill and McBride, the show’s popularity has created a loyal and enthusiastic following that surged over its first two seasons. Eastbound & Down is back for more innings, with the third season currently airing Sunday nights at 10:00p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on HBO.
The Eastbound & Down Soundtrack will be available via digital download and in retail stores, including the HBO Shop (42nd Street & 6th Avenue NY, NY / www.store.hbo.com), for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
