Mondo unveils Solo: A Star Wars Story vinyl soundtrack!
A couple of months after John Powell revealed an deluxe edition of his score for the 2018 space-faring adventure was on the way, Mondo has teamed up with Walt Disney Records to deliver a special vinyl release of the Solo: A Star Wars Story score that is set to be available for pre-order this December! Check out the new vinyl album in the gallery below!
The limited edition two-disc vinyl features amazing new artwork by César Moreno and is pressed on two 180-gram “Hyper Space” color or black vinyl with John Williams’ new “The Adventures of Han Theme” kicking off the rest of Powell’s score, with the 57-year-old Grammy and Oscar nominee being only the third composer to work in the film series in its 40-plus-year legacy.
“The music of Star Wars is so essential and monumental that it seems an impossible task for any new composer to take the reins,” Mo Shafeek, Mondo Creative Director of Music, said in a statement. “But John Powell’s original score, complimented by John Williams’ new Han Solo theme, is such non-stop bombastic nostalgic fun that it proves to be essential listening for fans of the series.”
