The physical release of the soundtrack is set for May 20th.
“VINYL: MUSIC FROM THE HBO® ORIGINAL SERIES – THE ESSENTIALS: BEST OF SEASON 1” takes the listener on a musical journey across the entire first season of VINYL, capturing the series’ key musical moments from the weekly released soundtracks – including brand new recordings from The Arcs, John Doe, Iggy Pop, Royal Blood, Nate Ruess, and Trey Songz (who delivered a stirring cover of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars?”) – alongside exclusive, previously unreleased material from Julian Casablancas, Chris Cornell, Elvis Costello, Charlie Wilson, Charli XCX and more (see attached track-listing).
The ambitious soundtrack series kicked off with the February 12th release of “VINYL: MUSIC FROM THE HBO® ORIGINAL SERIES – VOLUME 1,” a full length soundtrack tied to the much-anticipated, season premiere of VINYL. A series of eight digital releases followed, each featuring an exciting combination of original tracks written and produced exclusively for the series, vintage songs from the period re-recorded by contemporary artists, and a wealth of catalogue favourites, all either appearing in or inspired by music in that week’s episode.
The entire “VINYL: MUSIC FROM THE HBO® ORIGINAL SERIES” catalog was produced by the GRAMMY winning trio behind “BOARDWALK EMPIRE VOLUME 1: MUSIC FROM THE HBO ORIGINAL SERIES” comprised of VINYL music supervisor Randall Poster (“THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK,” “THE WOLF OF WALL STREET: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE”), Atlantic Records Group President of Film & Television/Atlantic Records Executive Vice President Kevin Weaver (“FURIOUS 7: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK,” “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE”), and VINYL music producer Stewart Lerman. Meghan Currier, who supervises the music in the series with Poster, co-produced. Executive producers are Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, Terence Winter, and Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman.
