The analog synth-heavy music of Stranger Things is finally coming to vinyl, after Geoff Barrow’s Invada and Lakeshore Records announced a October 28 release date for the first volume of the hit Netflix show’s soundtrack.
Composed by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Austin band S U R V I V E, the series’ score has been heralded for its use of doomy synths and tension. Now, having been released digitally on August 12, with a CD release slated for October 14, it’s been announced that the first volume of the show’s soundtrack will arrive on vinyl at the end of October, just in time for all those inevitable Stranger Things Halloween parties.
According to Pitchfork, the double LP will come in a gatefold sleeve that includes a printed insert featuring album credits and additional art. Colour variant pressings will be also available. An announcement about the vinyl release of the soundtrack’s second volume, as well as a 4xLP limited edition box set from Invada featuring both volumes of the soundtrack, is also on the horizon, with more details promised “soon”.
