Problem solved!

Press release: “EMI Classics will release Fifty Shades of Grey – The Classical Album, a 15-track album featuring classical music personally selected by author E L James herself and referenced in her bestselling Fifty Shades book trilogy. . . . Says James of the new album:  ‘I am thrilled that the classical pieces that inspired me while I wrote the Fifty Shades Trilogy are being brought together in one collection for all lovers of the books to enjoy’.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with E L James and Random House on this project,” said Wendy Ong, VP of EMI Classics. “The Fifty Shades books are a bona fide cultural phenomenon, and they offer an exciting new way to present this timeless music to audiences who might not otherwise be exposed to it [i.e., the music].”

And now, a sampling of EMI’s “Music to Torture By.”
