Title: Daft Punk – TRON: Legacy Format: Vinyl 2 LP Label: UMC Cat Num: 8750257 Barcode: 0050087502577
Release date: May 27th 2022
UMC/Walt Disney Records will release the TRON catalogue on heavyweight vinyl on May 27th. Marking the 40th anniversary since it was originally released on July 9th 1982, the original cult soundtrack made by electronic music pioneer Wendy Carlos is released on one disc heavyweight vinyl for the first time. The 2010 remake TRON: Legacy soundtrack was composed and scored by Daft Punk, while 2011’s TRON: Legacy Reconfigured featured remixes by M83, Avicii, Boys Noize, Moby, Paul Oakenfold. Both TRON: Legacy albums will be released on two-disc heavyweight vinyl.
TRON: Legacy Original Motion Picture Soundtrack marked Daft Punk’s film music debut and remains the only score composed by them to date. Universally acclaimed, the TRON: Legacy soundtrack was considered a musical departure but in hindsight contained aural hallmarks that foreshadowed Daft Punk’s later recorded work using live instruments to create classical soundscapes. Recorded with an 85-piece orchestra at London’s AIR Studios, Daft Punk cited Wendy Carlos as inspiration alongside Max Steiner, Bernard Herrmann, John Carpenter, Vangelis and Maurice Jarre. The soundtrack was certified gold in the UK soon after release.
