NEW YORK (AP) - Despite an unharmonious start that turned the “Spider-Man” musical on Broadway into a late-night talk show joke, a cast album will go on sale June 14.

The 14-song album “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” written by U2’s Bono and The Edge will be produced by Steve Lillywhite and will be released by Interscope Records.

The songs will feature Reeve Carney in the role of Peter Parker, Jennifer Damiano as Mary Jane, T.V. Carpio as Arachne, and Patrick Page as the Green Goblin. They’ll be backed by a 20-member orchestra.

The first single, “Rise Above 1,” will be available Wednesday night.

The show recently restarted after a three-week hiatus following the firing of Julie Taymor as director and with rejiggered music and a smoothed-out script. It officially opens on June 14.
