'Breaking Bad' Original Score Gets Wide Release on Vinyl (Exclusive)
First offered as a limited release in November, the double LP offers "a sound much closer to the version that came out of my studio," says composer Dave Porter.
"No more half-measures." Rather, a double album.
Breaking Bad (Original Score From the Television Series), a double LP featuring the musically cinematic moments of the AMC hit series, will be released on Apr. 29 via SpaceLab9 and Madison Gate Records.
Previously released as a limited double-picture disc by SpaceLab9 last November (and sold only at Hot Topic stores), the album will be completed by a gatefold jacket filled with series images, full-color inner sleeves, a full-color 18 x 24 poster, and extensive liner notes from composer Dave Porter, as well as showrunner and executive producer Vince Gilligan.
"I'm very pleased to have Volume One of my original score to Breaking Bad made available in a tangible way with this release on vinyl," Porter, who scored all 62 episodes and created the show's theme song, tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "Thanks to Madison Gate Records and SpaceLab9. I'm excited to share this release with fans of the show and record enthusiasts looking for a better listening experience than an mp3 could ever offer…a sound much closer to the version that came out of my studio."
