If you were looking for music to go with readings of  ”50 Shades of Grey” or BDSM activity inspired by the hit series of books, you’re in luck. EMI Classics announced today that it will release “Fifty Shades of Grey — The Classical Album,” a 15-track album featuring classical music curated by author E.L. James.

Fans of the books know that Grey, the billionaire entrepreneur with a flair for bondage, often plays classical music to set the mood for his sessions with young Anastasia. Now, creating a “mysterious and alluring atmosphere with just the slightest hint of danger” need no longer be a mystery.
