Nicolas Winding Refn to release vinyl compilation of Neon Demon inspirations

The Neon Demon Nicolas Winding Refn

Nicolas Winding Refn's 2016 horror film THE NEON DEMON was extremely divisive among horror fans, but one thing pretty much everybody could agree on was that the score was another stellar piece of work from composer Cliff Martinez. Refn seems to care about the music more than anything as well, because soon he'll be releasing a vinyl compilation of the tracks that inspired the sound of the film!

Titled The Wicked Die Young, the album will be released on April 14, 2017 via Milan Records. Featuring tracks from classic artists and film composers as well as a few from Martinez himself and Refn's nephew Julian, it certainly looks like it'll be a must-have for collectors everywhere.

Here's the track list:

Side A

01 Electric Youth: “Good Blood”
02 Lynsey de Paul: “Won't Somebody Dance With Me”
03 Suicide: “Cheree (1998 Remastered Version)”
04 999: “Homicide”
05 Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers: “Pirate Love”
