Glee's Dalton Academy Warblers to Release Album in April

Blaine and the Dalton Academy Warblers are releasing a Glee album of their own in April, a rep for the show confirms to TVGuide.com.

Darren Criss announced the news on Live with Regis and Kelly Monday morning.

So far this season, the Warblers have sung Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," Train's "Hey, Soul Sister," Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills," Robin Thicke's "When I Get You Alone" and Wings' "Silly Love Songs." In upcoming episodes — spoiler alert — they'll cover Neon Trees' "Animal" and Maroon 5's "Misery." During Regionals, they'll sing this underdog anthem by Pink.

The cover of "Teenage Dream" by Criss and the Warblers (voiced by real-life a cappella group the Beelzebubs from Tufts University) hit No. 8 on Billboard's Hot 100 in November.

Criss was made a series regular last year, and will go on tour with the cast this summer.

"It's fun being a Warbler," Criss, who also performed "Silly Love Songs," told the hosts. "It's kind of like being on our own little show. Everyone always asks me, 'How's the cast?' and they're lovely and I love the main kids at McKinley. But the fact is I actually spend most of my time away at another school, like we're in our own little TV show."
