E L James is releasing a 'Fifty Shades of Grey' album

After inspiring a sudden burst in sales of  Thomas Tallis’ choral work “Spem In Alium,” E L James has decided to take the next logical step in building her Fifty Shades of Grey empire: she’s releasing a companion album.

Unlike the Fifty Shades of Grey “soundtrack” playlist listed on the bestselling author’s official site, this record will feature strictly classical music. James has personally selected 15 works from her BDSM blockbuster trilogy (Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed) to include on an album to be released by EMI as a digital release on Aug. 15, with a physical version following on Sept. 18.

According to EMI, the album “aims to provide the perfect accompaniment to the Fifty Shades reading experience, setting a mysterious and alluring atmosphere with just the slightest hint of danger…”

In a statement, James said that she was “thrilled that the classical pieces that inspired me while I wrote the Fifty Shades trilogy are being brought together in one collection for all lovers of the books to enjoy.” READ FULL STORY

In addition to single-handedly carrying the publishing world on its candle-wax-scorched back, Fifty Shades of Grey has gone ahead and boosted the music business as well.

According to The Guardian, the mention of a Thomas Tallis choral work called “Spem In Alium” amidst the pages of the finest S&M masterwork since that last thing you read on the Internet has rocketed the piece up the British classical music charts (rocketed being of course a relative term).

The 40-voice epic, composed around 1570 and recorded in 1985, has elbowed chart heavyweight Luciano Pavarotti from the top perch. Go ahead and sample it below.
