Wow, it’s hard to believe that 5 years ago this September, I saw You’re Next at Fantastic Fest. I was a huge fan of the film, like many that saw it at that lone Fantastic Fest screening and the TIFF screenings prior. I still love the flick and it had some soundtrack cues that felt retro before that was used more frequently in independent horror films that were to follow. A lot of fans of the film didn’t have a lot of information on who the composer or composers were for the film. Some knew that the film’s director contributed to some of the soundtrack out of necessity and I believe it is mentioned in the commentary that other contributors stepped in to help create the soundtrack.
Tomorrow, Mondo is releasing the official soundtrack to You’re Next on vinyl. Mondo released the following statement via their newsletter:
This is the premiere release of this soundtrack. Never before available in any format, the album has been compiled from original source material under the supervision of the composers and filmmakers.
Also, for those curious, Mondo clarified who worked on the soundtrack via the same newsletter email.
Composed as a group effort by Kyle McKinnon, Jasper Justice Lee, Mads Heldtberg, and director Adam Wingard
Mondo also confirmed the inclusion of that classic Dwight Twilley Band song, “Looking for the Magic”, being on the soundtrack.
The Soundtrack is pressed on 180 Gram “Bloody Bedsheets” colored vinyl. Colorway limited to 1000 copies. With the layout by Justin Erickson.
The vinyl will be on sale Wednesday, February 17th at 12PM CST at MondoTees.com for $25.
