Mondo unveils El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie vinyl soundtrack!
In partnership with Sony Masterworks, Alamo Drafthouse-owned Mondo Records has unveiled the premiere release of the vinyl soundtrack to El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, the acclaimed sequel film and epilogue to the AMC series of the same name. The vinyl artwork can be viewed in the gallery below!!
“There is something so perfectly analog about the world Vince Gilligan created for his characters in the Breaking Bad universe – so when the opportunity to premiere the exclusive release of the soundtrack to El Camino was presented to us, it felt almost as perfect as when we first heard that Vince had created an entire feature length epilogue to the greatest television show of all time… in secret!” Mo Shafeek, Mondo Creative Director of Music, said in a statement. “Dave Porter’s score is haunting and tense, and the needle-drops are simultaneously perfect peeks into the heads of the complex characters of Vince’s expanded universe, and incredibly insightful, deep-cut slices of the American music landscape.”
With a thrilling, pulse-pounding score by Dave Porter, and nearly a dozen songs from the movie, this limited edition vinyl release is essential listening for fans of Vince Gilligan’s expanded crime saga.
“Oh man, how exciting. The soundtrack to my first movie gets the kid-glove treatment by Mondo, one of the world’s coolest record companies,” Breaking Bad series creator and El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie writer and director Vince Gilligan, said in a statement. “The great Matt Talbot provides the album art. And since the musical brilliance and stellar taste of Dave Porter and Thomas Golubić cannot be contained within one mere flat circle of vinyl… they’ve made it a TWO-LP SET! Here’s hoping “groovy” is due for a comeback — because I can’t think of a better word to describe this.”
The album features nearly every needle drop from the film, including songs by Lynyrd Skynyrd, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Jim White (Feat. Aimee Mann), Red Snapper and more, plus exclusive liner notes by composer Dave Porter and music supervisor Thomas Golubić. The soundtrack will be available for pre-order on Wednesday, October 14 at MondoShop.com.
