Now nominated for four Golden Globes including Best Score, Alejandro G. IÃ±Ã¡rritu’s survival epic is getting the vinyl treatment. Mastered for vinyl and limited to 3,000 units, this landmark release is handsomely packaged in a matte tip-on gatefold jacket with each of the two 180 gram pearlescent vinyl (one translucent blue, one cloud white) coming in their own euro sleeve. A download card for a digital version of the album is also included.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and shot in the frozen Canadian wilderness with only natural lighting, The Revenant is a story of loss, revenge and resilience in the face of impossible odds against the furies of man and nature itself.
A film of this magnitude deserves a composer who understands creative artistry and unbridled passion. Japanese master and Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto (Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, The Last Emperor) fits the bill perfectly. Along with fellow Yellow Magic Orchestra member and frequent collaborator Alva Noto, Sakamoto has created a gripping soundtrack that is sure to be a treat for the winter crowds. Bryce Dessner (writer for Kronos Quartet and the LA Phil) also supplies additional music.
