The triple-disc Mondo release of Rupert Gregson-Williams' 2018 score will be available this week.

2021 is going to sound like DC, thanks to a new partnership between Mondo and Warner Bros.’ WaterTower Music. The Austin, Texas-based manufacturer of high-end merchandise and collectibles is launching a new line of DC superhero soundtrack releases on vinyl with Rupert Gregson-Williams’ score for 2018’s Aquaman.

The three-disc Aquaman deluxe vinyl release will feature the complete score to the James Wan feature, as well as a disc of bonus tracks and remixes. Pressed on 180 gram translucent colored vinyl with splatter, the discs will be packaged in a trim-fold jacket featuring all-new original artwork from Pascal Blanché.

In a statement, Mondo creative director of music Mo Shafeek said, “James Wan's Aquaman is one of my favorite comic book films of the last 5 years. It’s a film that I personally had to see multiple times on the big screen just believe what I saw. And that achievement is equally owed to the brilliant Rupert Gregson-Williams for juggling the nearly impossible-to-replicate tone of the film. Always sincere, never ironic, always a good time - we are honored to celebrate this film and its score.”

The Aquaman release is the first in a series of DC soundtracks from Mondo; it’ll be followed by vinyl releases for Shazam!, Doom Patrol seasons one and two, and a re-issue of John Williams’ iconic Superman: The Movie soundtrack from 1978.

Mondo’s Aquaman release will be available via MondoShop.com starting Jan. 6.
