Mondo Tees announced the news yesterday that they would be releasing the “Luke Cage” Original Soundtrack 2XLP and I could not be more excited. I was given a record player this past Christmas ( haven’t opened it yet) and the music of Luke Cage would be the perfect thing to play on it.
Yes, I’ve ordered mines already and I’m thinking of possibly ordering another one just to keep in mint condition. I’ve only watched the first two episodes of “Luke Cage” on Netflix but I’ve heard some of the music and cannot say how beautifully awesome it is.
Here are the details:
Mondo is excited to unveil the soundtrack for the Netflix original series Marvel’s Luke Cage, with collectible artwork of the bulletproof hero by Matthew Woodson. Composers Adrian Younge (Something About April) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) have combined forces to produce one of the best scores of 2016 featuring an inspired, genre-bending blend of orchestral score and 90’s hip-hop beats, filtered through the sonic lens of the works of Ennio Morricone.
It’s no surprise that the score hovers in the same terrain of the Spaghetti Western soundtracks of Morricone – the narrative of Luke Cage plays out like a modern Western, only set in Harlem. Younge and Muhammad have meticulously crafted one of the most unique sonic landscapes in the history of television.
“We sought to create a score that reflects the world of Luke Cage. We see this world as a place where classic cinema meets classic Hip Hop,” said composers Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad.
If you’re interested in having this in your collection I’d preorder now. Items at Mondo are known to go quick and for $40 (plus shipping and all) I really think this deal can’t be beat.
