We’re approaching the one year anniversary of “Stranger Things,“ which premiered on Netflix July 15th, 2016. My summer was pretty much dominated by the show last year, as I watched the entire first season two times in a row and listened to the incredible, retro-infused soundtrack countless times over.
Speaking of that soundtrack, it’s coming to cassette!
On July 14th, just in time for the one year anniversary, Urban Outfitters will be selling Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s original, John Carpenter-inspired soundtrack on cassette. Coolest of all, the release evokes the spirit of another retro format, with the blood red cassette housed inside of a case made to look like a VHS tape. And it’s all nestled inside of a slipcover that looks like an ’80s VHS box. Fitting, given the series is ripped straight out of the ’80s.
Do you need this? Because we need this.
The soundtrack is also available on CD and vinyl, and can be purchased digitally.
