Mondo unveils The Mandalorian: Season One vinyl soundtrack
Mondo, in conjunction with Walt Disney Records, is proud to present the premiere physical release of Ludwig Göransson’s complete Season One soundtrack to The Mandalorian as an 8XLP Box Set that will be available for pre-order later this week! Check out the vinyl set in the gallery below!
“It’s no longer a secret that Ludwig Göransson is the most talented and exciting person working in film and television music right now,” Mo Shafeek, Mondo Creative Director of Music, said in a statement. “But what goes unspoken is his chameleon-like ability to play within multiple genres, even within single cues of his songwriting for the screen. His music for films like Creed and Black Panther showcase not only his collaborative nature, but also his relationship to pop and hip hop, as well as blending untraditional instrumentation with traditional orchestras.
“His score for The Mandalorian is similarly masterful in its ability to be wildly experimental while never feeling out of place – like a synth spaghetti western score that feels inspired in equal parts to Ennio Morricone, John Williams and Hans Zimmer, while also never feeling like a pastiche,” Shafeek continued. “We are honored to be the home for this complete score.”
This limited edition, one time pressing features music from all eight episodes, each pressed on their own 180 Gram vinyl disc, with original artwork by Paul Mann, and housed in a heavy-duty slipcase adorned with Mando’s mudhorn Signet. The soundtrack will be available for pre-order on Wednesday, August 26!
