In anticipation of the upcoming release of the “Heroes” soundtrack album from NBC Universal, “Heroes” executive producer and director Allan Arkush has crafted five unique music video podcasts that will be exclusively available for free download on Zune Marketplace. Each video short features exclusive edits of “Heroes” footage set to select tracks from the album.

The podcasts will feature the exclusive new releases “He’s Frank” by Brighton Port Authority featuring Iggy Pop
, “Not Now But Soon” by Imogen Heap and “Keeping My Composure” by The Chemical Brothers featuring Spank Rock, as well as “Man In The Long Black Coat” by Bob Dylan. “Heroes” fans can collect all five and easily sync them to their Zune portable media player to watch on the go.
