NEW MERCH! Xena Warrior Princess: Lyre Lyre Hearts On Fire (Picture Disc Vinyl) - Released 07 August 2020!

Wow - 19 years after the show ended we get some new merchandise! I LOVED Lyre Lyre, Hearts on Fire! Check out the new Picture Disc Vinyl - good time to dust off the record player!

The first-time vinyl release of the original soundtrack to Season 5’s beloved musical episode, “Lyre Lyre, Hearts on Fire,” includes songs sung by cast members—most notably Lucy Lawless, who plays the lead character of Xena: Warrior Princess. The album includes Lucy Lawless’ versions of “People Got to Be Free,” “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,” “There’s Always Something There to Remind Me” and “War." Available for the first time on LP, this double-sided picture disc comes in a clear sleeve with a full-color folded insert.

The score portion of the soundtrack is attributed to Emmy®-winning composer Joseph LoDuca, who scored the entire Xena series. LoDuca’s career credits include two Emmy® Award wins from 11 nominations, as well as a César Nomination for the French film Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001). He’s also widely known for creating the music for the Evil Dead film series (including Army of Darkness), as well as the soundtracks for the highly rated syndicated TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and more recently, The Librarians.
