"Juno" Gives Birth to a Second Soundtrack Album

Just like its namesake movie, the soundtrack for "Juno" was a big hit, so now fans of the music will be getting a second helping. "Juno B-Sides: Almost Adopted Songs" will be issued on April 8th exclusively through iTunes (priced at $9.99), with a release through other digital services on May 13th. No physical release for the album is planned at this time, it seems.

The 15-track "Juno B-Sides," as the name suggests, are songs that didn't quite make it into the movie but, as director Jason Reitman says in the liner notes, "are all essential members of the Junoverse."

The new CD includes a tune sung by "Juno" star Ellen Page, along with a couple of songs by Kimya Dawson, the singer and songerwriter featured in the movie and on the original soundtrack album. Also on the collection are songs by Belle and Sebastian, Buddy Holly, Yo La Tengo, and Astrud Gilberto, among others.
