Diana: The Musical will release its original cast recording September 24, both digitally and as a physical release, ahead of the work's October 1 premiere on Netflix and return to Broadway November 2.
Co-produced by composer and Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan and music supervisor Ian Eisendrath, the album was recorded during the shutdown.

Hamilton, Emma Hearn, Shaye B. Hopkins, André Jordan, Gareth Keegan, Nathan Lucrezio, Tomás Matos, Chris Medlin, Laura Stracko, and Bethany Ann Tesarck.
