Stranger Things soundtrack gets awesome 2-part vinyl release

Wow, who would have know when I woke up this morning that today I would be covering some much news about horror film scores. Not that I'm complaining! 

Anyhow, moving a bit away from horror film scores and into sci-fi horror-ish TV, Lakeshore Records has announced a new limited edition vinyl reissue of both volumes of the STRANGER THINGS soundtrack. They are also offering a deluxe box set. 

The vinyl editions feature the albums on awesome, colored vinyl, amazing new artwork, liner notes from the Duffer Brothers (the show’s creators) and of course the soundtrack from composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (of S U R V I V E), as well as a sweet new fold-out poster. 

The two new volumes will be released separately because of course, they will. Both editions will also come with “Character cards” with Volume I featuring the kids, and Volume II featuring the adults. Good for you Nancy (see below), you made the adults Volume!

Here is the full rundown on STRANGER THINGS S2 from EW:

Stranger Things season 2 begins nearly a year after the first installment, on Halloween in Hawkins, Indiana. (The boys are going as the Ghostbusters, naturally.) Will has rejoined his pals after being rescued from Things’ alternate dimension, the Upside Down. But all is not well with young Mr. Byers, as evidenced by the slug he coughed up in season 1’s final moments. 

His ultra-fraught mother, Joyce (Winona Ryder), is attempting to make things stable for Will and his brother, Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), and she is dating an old high school classmate, Bob (The Goonies’ Sean Astin).

Meanwhile, Hopper (David Harbour) is attempting to keep all the events of last season, like the disappearance of Barb, a secret in order to protect Joyce and the kids. Siblings Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Mike are also much changed and mourning the (seeming) deaths of friends Barb and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).

Shaking up the dynamics in Hawkins is the arrival of another brother-sister duo, Billy (Dacre Montgomery) and Max (Sadie Sink). While Max becomes pals with the boys and attracts romantic interest from Lucas and Dustin (played by actors Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo).

But this being Stranger Things, there is still a major amount of otherworldly forces causing trouble. The rift to the Upside Down remains open, as does the lab, now run by the seemingly friendly Dr. Owens (Paul Reiser). 

The new editions are out on vinyl July 14, and the STRANGER THINGS S2 premieres this Halloween.
