This article is about the series of soundtracks for the television show Instant Star. The albums shown below were released from 2005 to 2009.

The majority of songs performed for all of the albums were by Alexz Johnson. The first two albums contain only songs sung by Johnson, but starting from Songs from Instant Star 3, only four songs per album featured her vocals. It was originally planned for all the albums to be entirely performed by Johnson, but legal issues prevented her from doing this for the 3 and 4 soundtracks.

Songs from Instant Star Three is the soundtrack for the third season of Instant Star. In-show, Alexz Johnson appears on 10 tracks, but her contract with Capitol Records produced legal issues that prevented Johnson of being featured in more than four songs in the album. She was replaced by other artists, including other performers, writers and producers. Tyler Kyte's character, Vincent Spiederman, records a solo single (thus far in the series), and Cory Lee's character, Karma, also has a musical career in which she will be recording with limited relevance to the show/soundtrack.[1]

Releases[edit]

In Canada, the album was officially released July 3, 2007. There was a physical copy available for purchase in stores. In the USA, the album was officially released March 11, 2008. You can purchase the album through iTunes, FYE music stores or Amazon.com.
