'Glee': Warblers album to be released in April

It took only one song—Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”—for Blaine (Darren Criss) and the Warblers to become fan favorites on Glee. So, it’s only natural that the Warblers will be getting their own album due this April, according to Fox.

The series’ will release its fifth soundtrack album tomorrow, which includes season two tunes like “Thriller/Heads Will Roll” and “Take Me Or Leave Me.” It’s unclear what the track listing for the Warblers album will be but safe bets are “Teenage Dream,” “Hey, Soul Sister,” and “When I Get You Alone.” This week, Blaine and the Warblers (including Kurt) tackle Neon Trees’ “Animal.” Listen below to their cover:

    Yay! Looks like I’ll finally be buying a Glee CD. Got to support a cappella and the Beelzebubs.

    • MC


      The Beezlebubs from the Sing Off are actually the Warblers?

      I didn’t recognize them. Do they just do the vocal recordings or are they playing the actors as well?

      • amber

        From what I understand they are just the recording artists. They were in the Teenage Dream episode, but I think they actually brought in actors to play the roles on the show after that.

      • Andre

        An interview I read with the Bubs is that at the time of the interview they hadn’t meat Darren Criss, though they’d provided the arrangement and backing tracks for his lead vocals. The actors playing the Warblers are actors, not the Bubs.

      • Andre

        meat = met

      • April

        The Bubs are teh actual voices of the Warblers, other than Darren, but the boys who play the Warblers on screen do sing on Glee…infact on almost all the songs. They provide the backup vocals for the songs on the show. So the only time they aren’t actually singing, is when they’re on camera.

      • Lesley

        I love them and UKMatchmakers.net was brilliant

    • Flip

      I love the Warblers. They actually sound like a glee club.

    • Adwina Lambert

      i insist we do a duet and an orgy .. i mean group song!! tee-hee!

  • mscisluv

    I guess this will be my first Glee CD! I really hope the Tufts Beelzebubs get credit for this!

  • jamie cee

    Can’t wait to see this one… love the song, love that Kurt is being featured vocally again, FINALLY… should be fantastic with Criss and Colfer’s chemistry added in!

  • PJ

    It’s ridiculous that the Beelzebubs weren’t mentioned in this article.

    • Andre

      Absolutely ridiculous as well as not acknowledging they have many albums out already: bubs dot com

  • hoganbcmj

    They sound VERY electronically altered. How about just going with their natural voices?

    • Julie

      It’s because they can’t actually sing

      • jason

        actually daren criss can sing. if you seen him live you know this. unfortunately most people only know him from glee where a lot of work is done on the voices there.

      • Mike

        Darren Criss has a background in musical theater and can absolutely sing. The Tufts Beelzebubs can sing (as evidenced by season one of The Sing-Off). Hence, the Warblers can sing. The people who produce Glee, on the other hand, seem to think that if they auto-tune some of their actors, they need to auto-tune all of them – even the ones who don’t need it.

      • blake

        Darren Criss can sing! He’s Harry Freakin Potter!

      • miss k

        @blake- And Harry Freakin’ Potter is totally awesome!! Redvines??

      • Gazza

        AVPM ref by miss k just made my day!

    • calm down

      He can sing alright but people act like he is something super special and he is just good. He does seem to like the sound of his own voice cause he will sing on the street corner if someone smiles at him. He needs to tone it down and take off the lame pink glasses.

      • Kat

        Darren Criss, unlike many newcomers to television, already had a huge internet following before joining the Glee cast. Criss is a talented musician and actor and his fans happen to love the “lame pink sunglasses”. Less than a year ago, he was just an internet “celebrity” who made musicals about Harry Potter and covers of Disney songs. He obviously isn’t going to alienate that fan-base by getting rid of the things that made them love him in the first place- to do so would be a mistake.

  • Greg

    Yeah, I could not care less.

    At least their covers won’t be crowding the actual Glee soundtracks.

    • Jessica

      Then why are you crowding the space in this comment thread with your negativity. Go comment on some “actual Glee soundtracks” article.

  • Angela

    Sweet! Totes obsessed with Darren Criss.

  • Alex

    The link to Matthew Morrison’s song takes you to the original songs not his song. Can we fix that please?

  • Johnification

    Is it just me, or does it seem like the Beelzebubs only did “Hey Soul Sister” and “Teenage Dream”, and everything since then has been, well, the voice patch on a keyboard? The back-up for “When I Get You Alone” sounds awful and VERY fake.

    • Ann

      No, that’s what good acapella sounds like. If you’ve got a good vocal percussionist, that is. Of course, some of these warblers do sound digitally altered. I wish they would stop doing that. Acapella is great when it’s natural…

  • Zachsteinway

    So Darren Criss and Milli Vanilli will have an album out? Fantastic! Seriously, why have actors/dancers lip synching onscreen to songs they never sang when they could have just as easily gotten the actual guys? Are the Beelzebulbs ugly or something?

    • Andre

      The actual guys are university students, not actors. I imagine they’re busy in class and studying.

  • Margaret

    Awesome news as far as I’m concerned.

  • Jenna

    This is the best news ever! I’m going to purchase my first ever CD. Wait, does this album come out as an actual CD, or just digitally? Because this will mark my first CD purchase in… a very long time.
    I love Darren’s voice, Love the Bubs’ arrangements. This is pure WIN.

    • Jenna

      LOL, I meant “my first ever GLEE CD”. I have actually owned CDs in the (very distant) past.

  • Lorie

    I will definitely buy this CD.

  • J

    Great News I’m so buying this CD

  • Matt

    I had been disappointed that none of the Warblers’ songs (apart from “Teenage Dream”) had been included on albums 4 or 5, and now I know why. I will definitely be buying this.
