ENTOURAGE MOVIE SOUNDTRACK DETAILS REVEALED
14-SONG ALBUM DUE OUT JUNE 2 THROUGH WATERTOWER MUSIC
(May 27, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA) WaterTower Music announced today the June 2 release date and track list details of the soundtrack to “Entourage,” the much-anticipated big screen version of the award-winning hit HBO series, which reunites the show’s original cast, led by Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven.
The cutting-edge musical intelligence that the HBO show was known for was seamlessly maintained in the movie and on its companion soundtrack. “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin, who wrote, directed and produced the film, teamed up once again with music supervisor Scott Vener, whose musical selections played an important part in the TV series.
“Music has always been an integral part of ‘Entourage’ and the movie is no different,” says Ellin. “The music itself, like the boys and like Los Angeles, is another character that we hope the audience falls in love with.”
“My favorite part about the music of ‘Entourage’ is having the ability to play any genre of music without it feeling out of place,” says Vener, who meticulously chose the music for the film and also produced the soundtrack.
Vener’s diverse song choices for the album include the ‘Entourage’ theme song, “Superhero” by Jane’s Addiction, Diplo & DJ Snake’s previously-unavailable-for-purchase “Drop (feat. Big Freedia),” “Figure It Out” by Royal Blood, and “Hunter” by Pharrell Williams.
Williams, who has a cameo in the film, jokes “I love the movie…and they told me not to wear the hat!”
The “Entourage” soundtrack will be available June 2, 2015. The complete Entourage Soundtrack track listing is as follows:
Royal Blood Figure It Out
Jane’s Addiction Superhero
Diplo & DJ Snake Drop (feat. Big Freedia)

Entourage: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack – Track By Track Commentary:
1. Royal Blood - Figure It Out
This track has a ton of attitude and seemed like the right way to announce “the boys are back”!
2. Jane’s Addiction - Superhero
It’s the theme song – We can’t have an Entourage film without the theme!
3. Diplo & DJ Snake - Drop (feat. Big Freedia)
It’s Diplo & DJ Snake. Who’s making better party music than them right now? They’re on fire and it fits well with the lifestyle we wanted to portray for Vince and his friends.
4. A-Trak - Push (feat. Andrew Wyatt)
I’ve Always loved this song and have been trying to find it a home for a long time. I'm Glad it was in Entourage!
5. Du Tonc - Darkness
This has been one of my sleeper favorite songs in a while and it works PERFECT in the movie. Everyone needs to hear it and watch the video!
6. Pharrell Williams - Hunter
With a Pharrell cameo we needed a Pharrell song. This is one of my favorites of his last album.
7. Mobb Deep feat. Big Noyd - Give Up The Goods (Just Step)
Turtle always drives to the best hip hop. This is some of the best hip hop there is.
8. Tha Dogg Pound - What Would U Do?
Ari needed some attitude and there's nothing kicks ass more than Tha Dogg Pound.
9. Allison Taylor - Bells
When Emily Ratajkowski drives Vince in her Ferrari it was only right that we played this beautiful song by a brand new artist that is sure to make heads turn.
10. Tame Impala - Elephant
This song works to perfection. I have to give all the credit to the editor on this one.
11. Jim Jones - We Fly High
Ari kicking ass again… Needs no explanation.
12. Noreaga - Superthug
This is arguably one of the best beats Pharrell ever made. It was only right Ari got to be the Superthug coming to get what’s his.
13. The National - I Need My Girl
We were trying to make you cry in this scene. The National knows how to do that perfectly.
14. Mase - Feel So Good
I’m not going to tell you who wins but when he does “It feels so good.”
