Included in the CD's 15 tracks will be Pachelbel's "Canon in D," Bach's "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring" and "Spem in Alium" sung by The Tallis Scholars.

The latter has already experience a boost in sales after it was mentioned in the raunchy reads.

"I'm am thrilled that the classical pieces that inspired me while I wrote the Fifty Shades trilogy are being brought together in one collection for all lovers of the books to enjoy," James said in a statement.

And the music company is ecstatic to have been given the opportunity to get involved with the sultry hit.

"The Fifty Shades books are a bona fide cultural phenomenon," said Wendy Ong, Vice President of EMI Classics. "They offer an exciting new way to present this timeless music to audiences who might not otherwise be exposed to it."

The soundtrack will be released digitally on August 21 and on CD on September 18.
