Although most folks probably best recognize Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman as members of Prince’s 1980s band The Revolution, the duo has quietly spent the past decade and a half composing music for film and TV, most recently scoring NBC’s Heroes, which they’ve done since the show debuted in 2006. Now, they tell EW.com that they’re putting the finishing touches on an official Heroes score CD. The disc will develop the short on-air music cues that they wrote to accompany various scenes (mostly from season 1) into roughly 10 longer themes, each keyed to a specific character.

“The first [track] will be Peter, the second one is Claire, and so on,” Lisa says. “There are spots that are really hypnotic. I listened to it in my car a couple nights ago — I got stuck in my driveway!” (A separate soundtrack CD featuring several of Wendy and Lisa’s shorter compositions, along with tracks from artists like Panic at the Disco and Wilco, hit shelves this past March.)
