As Chief Hopper said, “Mornings are for coffee and contemplation.” So, chew on this: Lakeshore Records has officially announced they’re issuing Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon’s score to Stranger Things on vinyl.
Come October 28th, the first volume of the series’ magnetic, top-rated score will be yours to spin. The double LP will arrive in a gatefold sleeve with album credits and additional art, and yes, there will be color variants. The release date for the second volume will be announced shortly. However, there will be a 4xLP limited edition box set from Invada, whose distributing the album overseas, that should be out before Christmas.
For those that still kick around CDs, the first volume will be available on October 14th. In other words, there are way too many dates to remember and your nose might start bleeding if you try.
In related news, Netflix confirmed a second season for Stranger Things, and The Duffer Brothers even rolled out a teaser featuring what’s probably every episode title. Have fun decoding that.
