Big Time Movie Soundtrack is the title of the album/soundtrack of Big Time Movie. It was released on March 6, 2012, while the movie aired on March 10, 2012. The soundtrack is composed of 6 new songs which all of them are covers from the Beatles.


In 2011, iTunes approached BTR's management at Columbia Records, and offered them the opportunity to record and produce a full EP of Beatles covers.[1] The band started recording the songs in summer 2011, while touring and simultaneously working on their second album, Elevate.[2][3] On November 2, 2011, it was announced that there would be 4 songs in total, and these would appear in a Big Time Movie.[4][5] The band continued recording in January 2012, bringing the total of songs to 6.[6]

All songs from the Big Time Movie Soundtrack are covers of songs originally performed by The Beatles an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. When asked about covering the songs James Maslow said "We were all a little nervous I mean they're the greatest band in history". We weren't trying to replicate them but wanted to pay homage to them as much as possible."[7] While Big Time Movie only has 5 covers of The Beatles songs the soundtrack has a total of 6 songs.
