Full details for the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Django Unchained have been released, including cover art and track listing, which you can see below. For the first time in his film career, Tarantino collaborated with artists to create entirely original music. The album will be available in stores and at all digital retailers on Dec. 18th while the film comes out on Christmas Day, Dec. 25th.
Tarantino states, “I want to thank all the artists who contributed original songs (a first for me) to the picture. Most of these contributions came out of the artists’ own inspiration and their illustration of the film’s soul is invaluable. In addition to the new original songs I am also using a lot of older recordings on the soundtrack – many of which came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up versions of these recordings from the 60′s and 70′s, I wanted to use the vinyl I’ve been listening to for years – complete with all the pops and cracks. I even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people’s experience to be the same as mine when they hear this soundtrack for the first time.” READ MORE
