Mondo Music Release of the Week: Lightyear

|

Mondo releases new special vinyl editions every Wednesday. This is the ultimate edition of everything they release, with plenty of liner notes, brand new commissioned artwork, and always a limited edition size. The vinyl itself is usually colored or a photo disc as well. Basically, it’s like the Criterion Collection of movie and game soundtracks. This week sees the release of the Lightyear soundtrack from composer Michael Giacchino as they continue to release his work with the studio. The score will be spread across two 180 gram discs in hyper-fast color and will include artwork by Devin Elle Kurtz. It will be on sale tomorrow in The Mondo Record Store. Check it out below.

Lightyear Mondo Release Details

In collaboration with Walt Disney Records, Mondo is proud to present the first vinyl version of Academy Award®-winning composer Michael Giacchino’s score to LIGHTYEAR. Michael Giacchino is behind the scores of eight Pixar films, but LIGHTYEAR stands out as a true labor of love.

“What I enjoyed so much about working on LIGHTYEAR is that it’s not just a sci-fi movie…it’s a sci-fi movie that exists in Andy’s world,” says Giacchino. “I felt the music had to embody the love Andy felt watching Buzz on screen for the first time. The more I thought about Andy in the cinema watching this movie, the more I realized that LIGHTYEAR is exactly the kind of movie I would have loved when I was a kid. So, I tried to inject as much childlike fun and joy into the music as possible, to honor the spirit of children – like me and Andy – who are seeing their favorite movies on the big screen for the very first time.”

The score is a big part of the movie, and it works really well. Giacchino and Pixar go together like Buzz and Woody, and Mondo’s releases of his scores are always done with care and are some of their best releases. You can hang this one tomorrow.
