NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - Photo Finish/Atlantic Records has announced the release of "WHEN IN ROME: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK," the star-studded musical companion to the upcoming Touchstone Pictures film. The collection arrives in stores and online on January 12th, while the much anticipated romantic comedy -- starring Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Will Arnett, Alexis Dziena, Jon Heder, Dax Shepard, and Danny DeVito -- premieres in theatres across North America on January 29th.

"WHEN IN ROME: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" is highlighted by the first single, 3OH!3's "Starstrukk (Feat. Katy Perry)." A companion video -- co-directed by award-winning filmmaker Marc Klasfeld (Jay-Z, Coheed & Cambria, Foo Fighters) and Steve Jocz (Sum 41, Bowling For Soup) -- can be viewed online at 3OH!3's official website,

What's more, The Friday Night Boys video for "Stupid Love Letter" -- also directed by Sum 41's Steve Jocz -- will premiere in January.

"WHEN IN ROME: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" gathers tracks from an array of top stars and rising artists, including Matchbox Twenty, Needtobreathe, Laura Izibor, Paolo Nutini, Matt Hires, and multiple Grammy Award nominee Jason Mraz. Among the compilation's many highlights is an exclusive cover of Sweet's glam-rock classic, "Fox On The Run," performed by Fueled By Ramen recording group The Academy Is...(see tracklisting below). "WHEN IN ROME: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" Deluxe Digital Edition will add a number of tracks from the film's score, including renditions of such Italian favorites as "Tarantella" and "Ave Maria."

Directed by Mark Steven Johnson ("Ghost Rider," "Simon Birch") and written by David Diamond & David Weissman ("Old Dogs," "The Family Man"), "When In Rome" stars Kristen Bell ("Veronica Mars," "Couples Retreat") as an ambitious young New Yorker who, disillusioned with romance, takes a whirlwind trip to Rome, where she defiantly plucks magic coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of an odd group of suitors. The film is produced by Gary Foster ("Sleepless In Seattle," "The Soloist"), Andrew Panay ("Wedding Crashers," "Van Wilder"), and Mark Steven Johnson.
