CAPITOL RECORDS TO RELEASE SOUNDTRACK ALBUM FOR UNIVERSAL PICTURES’ “THIS IS 40”

Capitol Records has announced the December 11 release of the soundtrack album for Universal Pictures’ new comedy This Is 40 from writer/director Judd Apatow. Five years after Apatow introduced us to Pete and Debbie in Knocked Up, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise their roles as a husband and wife both approaching a milestone meltdown in This Is 40, an unfiltered, comedic look inside the life of an American family.  In his fourth directorial outing, Apatow’s new comedy captures what it takes for them to flourish in the middle of a lifetime together. The cast also includes John Lithgow, Megan Fox, Iris Apatow, Maude Apatow, Melissa McCarthy, Jason Segel, Robert Smigel, Charlyne Yi and Albert Brooks.
