The fates of Nucky Thompson and the rest of the bootlegging gangsters who inhabit the world of HBO’s Emmy-nominated drama Boardwalk Empire will continue to unfold when the show returns for a second season on September 25.

To properly prepare yourself for the new episodes, EW suggests you make yourself a healthy batch of bathtub gin and settle in with Boardwalk Empire Volume 1 – Music From the HBO Original Series, the show’s official soundtrack album set to be released on September 13.

The 16-track collection features a sharp cross-section of tunes from the show, including contributions from Loudon Wainwright III, Nellie McKay, Leon Redbone, Martha Wainwright, and Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks (the contemporary jazz combo who also serve as the house band at Babette’s Supper Club on the show).

It also includes New York songbird Regina Spektor’s version of “My Man,” a tune initially made famous by Fanny Brice (who would later be immortalized as the subject of the musical Funny Girl). You can hear the exclusive premiere of Spektor’s song after the jump.

    Boardwalk Empire needs a new theme song. The opening is really cool, but the music which has a classic rock feel. It just doesn’t fit.
