The soundtrack for NBC’s popular superhero drama, Heroes, will hit stores on March 18, bringing fans 18 songs from the show that mix the old (Bob Dylan and David Bowie — the Bowie track is "Heroes," obvs!), with the new (Wilco, Panic! at the Disco, and Imogen Heap), according to The Hollywood Reporter. More notably, the disc will also include a track by ’80s fuzz-rockers the Jesus and Mary Chain, which is the duo’s first new studio recording in a decade, as well as four songs — including the Heroes theme song — written by former Prince collaborators Wendy & Lisa. And for the die-hards, who are currently lamenting the show’s hiatus, "executive producer/director Allan Arkush has crafted five music video montage podcasts — featuring Heroes footage set to select tracks from the album." But for those, they’ll have to hit up the Zune online store (the exclusive free download spot) or MSN, where they will be streaming.
