The show's executive music producer Adam Anders has included two original tracks on the show's forthcoming new compilation "Glee: The Music, Volume 5." That's right - two original tracks. This is the first time ever that brand-new music will be featured on the show.

And it's some very promising new material. The original tracks include "Loser Like Me," "an energetic ensemble track" that was co-written by none other than Max Martin, Adam Anders and Peer Astrom, and "Get It Right," (co-written by Adam Anders and Peer Astrom) which is described as "a moving ballad brought to life by Lea Michele’s immense voice. "

Both of these original tracks will air in the Glee episode on March 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.  In addition to these new tracks, "Glee: The Music, Volume 5 "will feature the Glee casts take on such pop gems as Lady Antebellum’s GRAMMY-winning "Need You Now," Katy Perry’s "Firework" and Justin Bieber’s "Baby."

Gwyneth Paltrow makes a return to Glee and is featured on such classics as Prince’s "Kiss," Fleetwood Mac’s "Landslide" and Joan Jett’s "Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)." Paltrow’s earlier Glee contribution, a cover of Cee Lo’s "Forget You," was a big hit among fans and has just been certified Gold for sales in excess of 500,000 downloads.
