Mondo releases new vinyl special editions every single Wednesday. They are the ultimate edition of whatever they put out, featuring extensive liner notes, brand-new commissioned artwork, and always have a limited-edition size. The vinyl itself is usually colored or a photo disc, as well. Basically, it’s like the Criterion Collection of movie and gaming soundtracks. This week sees the release of the soundtrack to Star Wars film Rogue One in an expanded 4 LP version. The complete score from Michael Giacchino will be included, and over an hour of unreleased music as well. This is all to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the film this year. Check out the Star Wars release below.
Star Wars Rogue One Mondo Release Details
“In anticipation of the 5th anniversary of the beloved film, Michael Giacchino unearthed over an hour of previously unreleased music from the film and recording sessions. “This project was an almost five-week whirlwind of writing, recording, and mixing, but I couldn’t have been more enthusiastic about the adventure and will always look back on those days with fond memories,” said composer Michael Giacchino. “As with all the film scores I compose, my goal was to serve the story and the emotions of the film, but I think it was my 10-year-old brain who had the most fun composing for this new and exciting set of Star Wars characters and the worlds they inhabit.” Featuring all-new original artwork by John Powell, new liner notes by Michael Giacchino mastered for vinyl and pressed on 180-gram black vinyl, this collectors set is essential for Star Wars fans.”

Be ready to order this in The Mondo Record Shop this Wednesday when it goes on sale.
