Throw on your best fedora and head on down to the nearest speakeasy: ABKCO Records is streaming the star-studded Boardwalk Empire Volume 2: Music From The HBO® Original Series in full one week ahead of its release (September 3rd). Take a listen below (via Billboard).

The 20-track effort features renditions of 1920s pop standards from a number of big-name acts, including St. Vincent, The National’s Matt BerningerNeko CaseElvis CostelloPatti Smith, Karen Elson, New York Dolls frontman David Johansen, and Rufus Wainwright. Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks serve as the backing band while also providing several instrumental interludes.

In a statement, music supervisor Randall Poster said, Boardwalk Empire provides an incredible back drop for music. It’s been a steady treat to mark the passing of time in song over the course of four seasons. Terry Winters, Martin Scorsese and the entire Boardwalk Empire team inspire the sound of the episodes as we move from the streets and alleys of Atlantic City to the smoky rooms of Al Capone’s Chicago and on down into the tropics of Florida. This compilation celebrates the mastery of all the artists involved.”

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.
