The soundtrack that Daft Punk created for Tron: Legacy was a huge part of what made that movie so awesome. To this day, ten years later, I still enjoy listening to that soundtrack. It’s a great way to derezz after a long day.
Well, Mondo has announced that they will be releasing a vinyl edition of the soundtrack, and thanks to Collider, we have a first look at the art that was created by artist Matt Taylor.
Mondo calls this “one of our holy grail releases,” and Mo Shafeek, Mondo’s creative director of music, explained that this version is “a direct repressing of what was released on the original vinyl album, which did feature a full collection of bonus tracks.”
Here’s the official description:
Mondo, in partnership with Walt Disney Records, is proud to present the 10th anniversary pressing of Daft Punk’s incredible soundtrack to the film TRON: LEGACY.
Composed by Daft Punk and arranged and orchestrated by Joseph Trapanese, the score for TRON: LEGACY took over two years to complete in a purpose-built studio created by Disney for the iconic duo. It features a stunning mix of electronics fused with a more traditional 85-piece orchestra.
Daft Punk managed to devise a score that’s not only a living, breathing character within the film, but also one that works as a stand-alone record away from the visuals it soundtracked. It’s hard to believe this was their first significant film project (apart from their animated film Interstella 555 in 2003), and the work they deliver here is nothing short of stunning.
Our edition of the modern classic is newly (and exclusively) remastered by James Plotkin and contains the entire score plus bonus tracks split across four sides. Featuring all new artwork by Matt Taylor, housed in a spot-varnished die-cut O-Card, and pressed on 2x 180 gram colored vinyl.
The new vinyl will cost $35, and it goes on sale at 12pm CT on Wednesday, September 30th, 2020. The item will be shipped in November.
