The first Glee soundtrack hits shelves next week, and turns out, that's not the only one coming up. Well, sure, we know there'll be more soundtracks as the show pushes forward, but not this soon. Billboard reveals that a second Glee album is set for a December 8 release, roughly a month after Glee: The Music Volume 1 hits shelves on November 3. Gleeks can also expect an extra download in the coming weeks: a Christmas single, a remake of Wham's "Last Christmas", is in the works, and that song will not be featured in any of the upcoming episodes. It's expected to hit iTunes in mid-November. And then there's that possible second Glee tour, with a start date pegged for summer next year. And then there's the possibility of solo albums from the Glee cast--the tie-up between Fox and Columbia Records allows for just that, but it's been clarified that it is not a priority at the moment. The article also reveals a few details in upcoming episodes. We all know there'll be an episode that features Madonna's music exclusively--and that, I guess, is different from Dianna Agron singing a Madonna song in episode 10. If you've read Entertainment Weekly's cover story this weekend, we know that that Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" and John Lennon's "Imagine" will be performed at sectionals, the latter from the deaf school New Directions goes up against. There's also the bit about Kristin Chenoweth returning as April Rhodes. And then there's this episode which will feature all original songs. Glee creator Ryan Murphy gave extra details to Billboard, revealing that the episode will be called "Original Song" and sees Will asking the kids to, well, write their own songs. "[Composer] Diane Warren is going to do two big ballads, and if it works, we'll see what happens," he said. Lea Michele also revealed something from their set list at sectionals. "In the 13th episode, I go from singing a Barbra Streisand song into a Rolling Stones song into a Kelly Clarkson song," she said. I wonder which songs are those? And finally, before we end this thing, here's a link to a video preview from the November 11 episode of Glee --you know, the one with Artie. We can't embed it here, but it sets up the Rachel-Kurt rivalry, all thanks to " Defying Gravity ". And there's a good Mercedes line, too. Like, oh yeah. Source Here
I am not sure if this was put up here already but here is the article about the chance at a Glee Tour This would be amazing! Supposedly after the first season wraps, a Glee music tour could be underway in the spring of 2010! Talks for such a tour are still in the early stages and nothing is 100 percent confirmed, but it's a genius idea. The show has been killing it on iTunes selling tracks from aired episodes and the first soundtrack, on sale November 3, will probably fly off the shelves. Fox Broadcasting president Kevin Reilly has coyly suggested at the future of a tour saying: "Certainly if these kids become stars in their own right, who knows? Live appearances. Albums. There's lots of things that could happen." We would love it and so would the "gleeks!"
We're going to call it, When Lea Michele Met Idina Menzel! Check out this snippet of the Glee kid's rendition of Defying Gravity (above)! Thoughts?
If all you Gleeks have been praying to hear some Madonna on Glee , then hold on to your sheet music. The Material Girl has given the Fox series the rights to her catalog for an all-Madonna-themed episode in the works for early next year, according to Entertainment Weekly. Series creator Ryan Murphy also told the magazine he's considering approaching American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert about a guest appearance, but nothing is official. Meanwhile, Murphy, clearly still bitter about NBC nixing a Glee float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, may use the incident in an upcoming episode in which the glee club is denied a spring festival float by arch nemesis Sue Sylvester. A Fox spokesperson said the network wouldn't comment on upcoming story lines. Which Madonna songs do you want to hear the glee club cover? And are you excited for a possible Glambert guest spot?

Fox's Glee won't be returning with new episodes until November, but the coming-soon scenes sure revealed a lot. In case you missed it, Will says that Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) is planning something so evil, it could cost the club a win at sectionals. We got the lowdown from Matthew Morrison. Glee: Who has a crush on Will Schuester? "Sue's going to give our set list to the other teams," says Morrison. "They're going to do our songs ... before we do them, so it's going to make us look like we're copying them." Caught off guard by this deception, the club must step up their game. "We have to do this impromptu thing and fly by the seat of our pants," adds Morrison. Will glee make an amazing comeback and win? Source Here
Fox is looking to cash in on Glee 's popularity even more by releasing the first 13 episodes on DVD before the year's end. Glee Season One: Road to Sectionals will be available for purchase on Dec. 29, only weeks after the show wraps up its first 13 episodes, according to Variety. Though a second DVD of the entire first season will drop in mid-2010, the home entertainment unit will give fans (aka "Gleeks") who purchase Sectionals a voucher that can be used toward the purchase of the later box set. The DVD will include the musical dramedy's first 13 episodes, a director's cut of the pilot episode, behind-the-scenes features, cast audition videos and music performances from the show.

Skipping two weeks, " Glee " will be back with "Wheels" as the first episode of November sweeps. Will encourages the Glee Club to support Artie, and asks each of them to perform in a wheelchair. Meanwhile, Kurt and Rachel compete for a big solo. During the episode also, there will be a confrontation from Puck that Finn is not the daddy of Quinn's baby. "I think Finn is going to blow up a little bit. You never know what's going to happen when someone's feelings get hurt on that level. He has so much invested in another human being coming, and to have that shattered," Matthew Morrison aka Will said in an interview with TV Guide. Morrison also spilled about the last episode of the first season, saying "The last episode is called 'Sectionals.' It's the best episode. It's the kids performing and not particularly winning maybe. Or if they do win, we have to start dealing with their celebrity; them at school thinking they're too hot because they won sectionals. We have regionals after sectionals, so we have a long way to go." But before the show gets to the finale, "Glee" will have an all-Madonna song episode and a Joss Whedon-directed episode.

Glee 's Will Schuester is dealing with a crazy wife who's faking a pregnancy, and a guidance counselor for whom he has feelings. Now a third gal is entering the mix. We sat down with Matthew Morrison to find out which woman is wowed by the glee club teacher. Morrison also dishes on what will happen when Will finds out Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig) is not really pregnant, what's Sue Sylvester's next scheme and what's ahead for the glee club when they perform at sectionals. Pregnancy problems: "Terri's doing a hell of a job at keeping it under wraps," says Morrison. "She won't let me touch her, she's playing the victim and stuff, so it's been very interesting. What she's doing, there's no redemption from, it's borderline criminal. Will is eventually going to find out that Terri is not pregnant; it's going to be quite the blow out. I would think he would leave her. ... I'd like to see him have a little bit of a backbone." Wedding stopper: Emma (Jayma Mays) and Ken will soon be heading down the aisle, ruining any chance for a relationship between Will and Emma. So does Will try to stop the nuptials? "I don't think so," Morrison says. "He's a standup guy. He's going to have a baby, the wedding just helps him refocus his energy on where he should be with Terri and his family to come." New love interest for Will? "Rachel (Lea Michele) kind of has a crush on me for a little while. So I have to sing songs for her to keep her back. I think Will handles it well. We do a duet of 'Endless Love.'" Finn's not a baby daddy: "I think it's going to be kind of a little parallel to Will. I think Finn (Cory Monteith) is going to blow up a little bit. You never know what's going to happen when someone's feelings get hurt on that level. He has so much invested in another human being coming, and to have that shattered ..." Glee club trouble: "Jane Lynch's character stirs the pot a lot, so she gets them in trouble for things that they really shouldn't be getting in trouble for. They're going to shoot a commercial for a mattress company. She's going to use that against them and say they're getting paid for stuff, and they shouldn't be getting paid." Sectionals showdown: "The last episode is called 'Sectionals.' It's the best episode. It's the kids performing and not particularly winning maybe. Or if they do win, we have to start dealing with their celebrity; them at school thinking they're too hot because they won sectionals. We have regionals after sectionals, so we have a long way to go." Matthew's favorite upcoming song: "I get to sing a mash-up of 'Don't Stand So Close to Me' by The Police, and it's mashed up with 'Young Girl,' by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. Source Here

Whedon's episode of Glee will air in the spring.
