When discussing the reasons behind the choice of artists for this new album, Atlantic Records president, Kevin Weaver, said, “I would say that most of these artists ended up having a connection with the film by way of this process,” going on to say, “It was important to me to really try to do something to serve the UK market, so that’s the why I put James Arthur and Anne-Marie on one of the most important songs, and why I put Jess Glynne and Years & Years on ‘Come Alive,’ and why I added a Craig David version of ‘Come Alive’ as a bonus track.”
'Reimagined' is not the only follow on The Greatest Showman album planned for release. Late October will see a two-CD 'sing-along' edition of the original cast soundtrack, including a karoke-style disc.
