The album received the Academy Award for Best Original Score, Academy Award for Best Original Song, and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score.

The first disc remains identical to the original release, yet with remastered audio, while the newly added second disc is composed of various newly recorded version of the film's songs by different artists, such as Ashley Tisdale, Raven-Symoné, the Jonas Brothers, and Jessica Simpson. It also includeds two music videos, as well as new cover art.
