Tomorrow we will be releasing our copies of the amazing soundtrack to OBLIVION by M83 and Joseph Trapanese. Hopefully by now you've had a chance to listen to it (it's been streaming on several music blogs or Spotify if you have it) or better yet, you've heard it at its intended volume at your local cinema. If you haven't, it is incredibly powerful, and very effective (see what I did there?)
Our participation in this release was sort of a happy accident. It happened while we were fishing for other soundtracks in the Universal Pictures library. We heard about M83 doing the score, and we are all huge fans, so we snuck it in on the list of potential releases and never expected to hear back… and I guess the rest is obvious. But what should be noted is the filmmakers personally requested the art of Killian Eng, and I cannot say I blame them. The artwork came out incredible, and perfectly captures the Daytime Sci-Fi look Joseph Kosinski created in the film. We hope you like it!
A few notes regarding this release: The copies we will be selling tomorrow will ONLY be clear. I know this is different than previous releases, with randomly-inserted Variant vinyl. The contributing factors to this decision are plentiful, but mostly selfish. We just wanted our copies to be special. That said, the copies that will be in record stores starting on 5/28 will be black ONLY.
The final note I want to make is that, while we are putting these on sale tomorrow, they will not begin shipping for two weeks. I approximate 5/15/2013. We are still playing quite a bit of catch up in the shipping queue, and I don’t want to skip the people who are patiently waiting on GAME OF THRONES prints and beyond. For locals, we will announce when OBLIVION vinyl are available for gallery pick-up.
