Broadway’s been buzzing about Beautiful, the new musical that chronicles the life of famed singer-songwriter Carole King and the songs she wrote that launched the careers of a generation.

While the show is bolstered by a star-making performance from Jessie Mueller, everyone who has seen it is raving about the music. Well, good news — like any good Broadway musical, the show plans to release an original cast album featuring the songs written by King and re-interpreted by the cast of theater veterans.

EW has a truly beautiful (sorry) first listen to five of the tracks from the upcoming album, which will be released digitally on April 1 and in stores on May 13 (you can pre-order on iTunes here).

Below, check out “Some Kind of Wonderful” (sung by Jessie Mueller, Jake Epstein and the Drifters); “Walking in the Rain” (Anika Larsen and Jarrod Spector); “You’ve Got a Friend” (Mueller, Larsen and Spector); “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” (Mueller); and of course, the titular ballad “Beautiful” (Mueller).

Beautiful opened on Broadway on Jan. 12 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
