'Ant-Man and the Wasp' to Launch Soundtrack Release Partnership Between Marvel and Mondo
If anticipation for Avengers: Endgame has left you obsessed with all things Marvel, Mondo Music has just the announcement you’ve been waiting for. The Austin, Texas, pop culture company has partnered with Marvel and Hollywood Records to release the soundtracks of the Marvel movies on vinyl for the first time, starting this week with Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Christophe Beck’s soundtrack to the 2018 film will be the inaugural release from the partnership and will set the bar for everything that follows. The release will come in two colored vinyl discs with brand-new artwork from Phantom City Creative and will include 14 previously unreleased tracks. The package will be available for $35 starting Wednesday through MondoTees.com.
“Over the last 10 years, Marvel Studios has assembled such an incredible array of composers to craft new music for their ever expanding universe of characters,” Mondo Music Record Label Manager Mo Shafeek said Monday in a statement. “The roster is outrageous on paper: everyone from Alan Silvestri and Michael Giacchino, to Mark Mothersbaugh and Ludwig Goransson, to, most recently, Pinar Toprak who did amazing work on Captain Marvel. We are honored to start our MCU soundtrack series with Ant-Man and the Wasp (one of our favorite superhero themes of the last few years for us was Christophe Beck's earworm theme for Ant-Man) and cannot wait to see what comes next!”
While everyone will have to wait to see (and hear) the finished releases, Mondo has revealed that Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok will be the next releases from the Mondo/Marvel deal, which is intended to run “throughout 2019 and beyond,” according to Mondo.
