The Prince Caspian Soundtrack Releases today; Radio Disney adds Switchfoot's "This Is Home"; Switchfoot on American Idol... kinda...

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Soundtrack releases today! So far, on itunes, it has peaked so far at No. 36 on the Top overall albums (Edit: 11:05 AM PST It has reached No. 24). (Edit: 2:15 PM PST It is at No. 17) (Edit: 5:28 PM It's No. 15) Make sure you download it or pick up a copy at the store; show Disney that they didn't make mistake by signing on Switchfoot to write their lead single for the album! =)

But if you're looking for the single song only, iTunes is currently not the place to get it. "This Is Home" on the soundtrack is an album-only track. And also, remember this is the soundtrack version that we have not seen publicly yet. (p.s. It sounds amazing!) But sit tight! Our friend Ryan has inside info: Message Board Post.

I'm almost 100% positive that next tuesday This is Home will be available as a radio single download. My cousin works for itunes and confirmed that TIH will soon be available seperate from the album!

Sweetness. Two versions of a great song. Awesome. I strongly recommend you get both. I'm beginning to like the light percussion "Soundtrack Version" better than the full-drums music video/radio edit version.


Here's some more pressage and bloggery about "This Is Home"... don't you love the use of non-existent words there? yupp.

And a new press release about Switchfoot's performance tonight on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, as well as other radio news.


In conjunction with local market promotions around the film designed to build excitement toward the release of the new “Narnia” movie, EMI CMG Label Group has released the “This Is Home” single to AC and CHR Christian radio. The Air 1 Radio Network, heard on 70 stations and 106 translators in 35-states, is among the first to add the new single, along with stations in Chicago, Nashville, New Orleans, Jacksonville, Toledo and many other markets. Radio Disney is also adding the song as Hollywood Records and Red Light Management/Entertainment are working the single at mainstream radio formats.

Yes. It's true. Radio Disney has added "This Is Home" to their request list. Amongst the teen pop goodness of Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana (mark the somewhat sarcastic tone in my voice), Switchfoot should find a great home on the station's playlist. Get ready for something revolutionary, Radio Disneyers: Good MUSIC! Wow...

No offense. I'm absolutely joking, peeps. ;)

Seriously though, go request "This Is Home."

Another noteworthy piece is the confirmation that Hollywood Records is helping Red Light work the single to mainstream. Hollwood Records is responsible for last summer's soundtrack song, "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's, which was No. 1 on every radio station everywhere for forever last year. I think "This Is Home" is in good hands!


Speaking of radio, here's the CHARTS:

"This Is Home"

Hot AC: 287 with 3 spins this week
Top 40 Mainstream: 715 with 1 spin this week
Christian AC: 58 (+14) with 49 spins (+13 from yesterday) this week
Radio Disney Format: 44 with 8 spins (+8) this week


Watch The Tonight Show! It's going to feature Evangeline Lilly (Kate from Lost), Ben Barnes (yes, Prince Caspian himself), and of course, Switchfoot playing their future hit single, "This Is Home!" 11:35/10:35 Central.

We'll have a download of it available sometime tomorrow. Sit tight friends!

I had a tough decision-
S.O.S. or This is Home. I think I made the right choice with TIH.

the makers of Prince Caspian kept to the original story better than i would have expected... i had heard they were going to make it into a silly pure-action flick, but thankfully this was not the case
