Max Martin arrives at the 2016 ASCAP Pop Awards at the Dolby Ballroom at Dolby Theatre on April 27, 2016 in Hollywood, Calif. 

"& Juliet," premering in London, also includes songs from Ariana Grande, Backstreet Boys, The Weeknd, Justin Timberlake & more.

Legendary songwriter Max Martin is writing his way into the musical world with & Juliet, which will feature his prolific body of work as a songwriter. From No. 1 hits like Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” and Katy Perry’s “Roar,” renditions of Martin’s golden tracks will be featured on the & Juliet (Original London Cast Recording) soundtrack, which Atlantic Records will release on all digital streaming platforms Nov. 20.

The new West End musical explores the different twists and turns Shakespeare’s original Romeo and Juliet play could’ve made, like “What if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning? What if she decided to choose her own fate?” according to the press release.

& Juliet seeks to comically answer these questions as the main damsel in distress gets down to the most iconic pop songs of the last three decades during her journey of self-discovery post-Romeo. Martin and film producer Tim Headington will present & Juliet in a limited circuit at the Manchester Opera House starting Wednesday (Sept. 11) until Oct. 12 before beginning performances Nov. 20 at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre. Tickets are available here.

Other renowned songs on the 30-song musical soundtrack include “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” by Justin Timberlake, part of Martin’s impressive songwriting résumé as he holds the third spot for most-ever written No. 1 singles (22) on the Billboard Hot 100, following Paul McCartney (32) and John Lennon (26). The musical will feature one original pop anthem, “One More Try,” arranged by Grammy-winning musical supervisor/orchestrator/producer Bill Sherman and Grammy award-winning producer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Dominic Fallacaro.

Listen to Miriam-Teak Lee’s theatrical cover of Perry’s “Roar” below, which will be part of the soundtrack available for pre-order here.
