The Alan Silvestri-penned score to Ready Player One is now up for pre-order at FYE and Books A Million. They have the soundtrack on double green vinyl or blue vinyl, each housed in a gatefold jacket. According to the press release:
The film’s director/producer Steven Spielberg notes, “While all sorts of culturally iconic references populate Ready Player One, the score that Alan Silvestri composed is completely and intoxicatingly original. It’s bound together by multiple themes that identify plot and character and is infused by such percussive adrenaline and soaring strings that Alan has made Ready Player One appear to fly. I think his score is fantastic.”
And then Silvestri (Back To The Future, The Avengers, Forrest Gump) was quoted as saying:
“An invitation to travel arrived just about a year ago, not just to a place, but to a time. Actually, to a number of times—primarily the year 2045, along with a few stops in the 80s. A rather detailed map had been drawn by Ernest Cline and the Captain of the voyage, none other than Mr. Spielberg himself. What could one possibly do or say? Pencil in hand, one firmly fastens one’s seatbelt, says ‘Sir, Yes, Sir,’ and prepares for the trip of a lifetime.”
The vinyl will come out on July 13. You can stream it below. We’ll keep you updated on any additional variants.
