In this week’s episode, which airs Wednesday, Oct. 21 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), WILL (Matthew Morrison) draws inspiration from the students and composes a mash-up for a very special occasion. Meanwhile, in a shocking reversal of roles, McKinley High’s cool kids are dethroned in an “icy” fashion, and SUE (Jane Lynch) shows off her softer side.

In addition to these three new songs, cast versions of Jill Scott’s “Hate On Me,” The Supremes’ “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown’s “No Air,” Avril Lavigne’s “Keep Holding On,” Queen’s “Somebody To Love,” Heart’s “Alone,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Maybe This Time” from “Cabaret,” Céline Dion’s “Taking Chances,” Rihanna’s “Take A Bow,” Carrie Underwood’s “Last Name,” Jazmine Sullivan’s “Bust Your Windows,” Kanye West’s “Gold Digger,” REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It” and Duffy’s “Mercy,” as well as mash-ups of Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” with Usher’s “Confessions Part II” and Beyoncé’s “Halo” with Katrina and the Waves’ “Walking on Sunshine,” are also available for purchase via all digital service providers.

On Tuesday, Nov. 3, Columbia Records and Twentieth Century Fox Television will release “Glee: The Music, Volume 1,” the first in a series of soundtracks that feature music heard in the first season of the critically acclaimed series on FOX. “Glee: The Music, Volume 1” will feature spectacular renditions of several chart-topping hits.

GLEE, the genre-defying new musical comedy series, follows an optimistic teacher who – against all odds and a malicious cheerleading coach – attempts to save McKinley High’s Glee Club from obscurity while helping a group of aspiring underdogs realize their true star potential.

Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan are co-creators of the series. Murphy, Falchuk and Dante Di Loreto serve as executive producers, while Ian Brennan serves as co-executive producer.
