ALMOST ALICE Debuts At No 5 On The Billboard 200



Burbank, CA (Top40 Charts/ Walt Disney Records) - ALMOST ALICE debuts today at No 5 on The Billboard 200 album chart, selling over 58,000 units in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album topped Billboard's Digital Album and Soundtrack charts, the iTunes album chart, and also had Top 10 debuts in Mexico, Canada and Australia.

Released March 2, 2010 by Buena Vista Records, ALMOST ALICE (almostalicemusic.com) puts a musical mad hatter's spin on Alice and her magical Wonderland. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's beloved storybooks and director Tim Burton's blockbuster "Alice in Wonderland," ALMOST ALICE boasts an eclectic array of recording artists with original songs based on some of the most charismatic characters in literary history. Among the compilation's highlights are "Alice" by Avril Lavigne (the film's end credit track); the All-American Rejects' acoustic-driven "The Poison;" and the Cure's Robert Smith with a haunting update of "Very Good Advice," a song from the original 1951 Disney animated feature, "Alice in Wonderland."

ALMOST ALICE also features "In Transit" performed by blink-182's Mark Hoppus and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz; "Painting Flowers," an epic guitar driven alternative rocker from All Time Low; the funky pop track "Follow Me Down" from 3OH!3 featuring Neon Hitch; and, from one Grace to another, a faithful rendition of Jefferson Airplane's 1967 hit "White Rabbit," performed by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. The album is a companion to the film's soundtrack, which features the score by composer Danny Elfman.

When Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Records joined forces with Hot Topic and MySpace for the Feb. 19 ALICE IN WONDERLAND Ultimate Fan Event, an estimated 5,000 fans gathered at Hollywood & Highland Center while an additional 400,000 fans viewed the live online concert event. The concert featured ALMOST ALICE artists 3OH!3, Metro Station, Kerli and Never Shout Never. The event culminated with appearances by the director and cast of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
Starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, ALICE IN WONDERLAND is in theaters worldwide in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D.
