Universal Music EnterprisesClassic tunes by Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and Ringo Starr are included on a very special soundtrack collection featuring songs heard on the Emmy-nominated NBC drama series, This Is Us.

The 20-track collection, titled This Is Us (Music from the Series), will be released September 15 and will be available on CD and as a digital download.

Among the songs on the album are Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al,” Wonder’s “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)” and Starr’s “Photograph,” as well as Cat Stevens‘ “The Wind,” Blind Faith‘s “Can’t Find My Way Home,” and Badfinger‘s original version of Harry Nilsson‘s chart-topping smash, “Without You.”

The record also includes tunes by founding Byrds member Gene Clark and influential English folk singer Nick Drake, plus a cover of the Little Feat gem “Willin'” sung by This Is Us cast member Mandy Moore.

The show follows the fictional Pearson family through the years, alternating between the story of young parents Jack and Rebecca Pearson in the 1980s and ’90s, and their three adults kids — Kevin, Kate and Randall — in the present day.

The first season of This Is Us will be released on DVD on September 12, while the second season will premiere on September 26.
