Peacock's upcoming series Girls5eva, starring Sara Bareilles, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Busy Philipps and Paula Pell as a reuniting '90s girl group, will release an accompanying soundtrack album via Epic Records, Billboard can exclusively reveal.
The soundtrack is out Thursday, May 6, the same day the comedy series -- created by Meredith Scardino and executive produced by Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and Jeff Richmond -- starts streaming on Peacock. The eight-episode series follows a one-hit-wonder girl group from the 1990s trying to give their stardom one more shot after their song gets sampled by a young rapper.
The nine-song soundtrack from composer and EP Richmond (Broadway's Means Girls, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and the writers of Girls5eva, including Scardino, will be released by Bareilles' label, Epic Records. The soundtrack features a new song written by Bareilles titled "4 Stars" and her solo song "I'm Afraid (Dawn's Songs of Fears)."
