Quentin Tarantino has announced the soundtrack to his ninth film, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. Due out July 26th via Columbia Records, the collection is chock full of ’60s selections that look strange on paper, but work effortlessly together on screen.
Curated by Tarantino himself, the soundtrack’s a love letter to the music of 1960s-era Hollywood, and features everyone from Paul Revere & The Raiders, to Deep Purple, to Simon and Garfunkel, to Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels. It’s a wild ride, alright. Also included are a number of jingles that should send you straight back into the picture.
The soundtrack will be available on both CD and digital streaming platforms starting tomorrow. However, vinyl enthusiasts will have to find their inner Cliff Booth if they want to hear it on vinyl this weekend. A batch of limited-edition copies will be available exclusively at Amoeba Records and Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema throughout the film’s opening weekend. Good luck with that one, California dreamers.

Rest assured, a wider release will follow this fall, and through several iterations. For starters, a deluxe edition places the soundtrack on 220 gram heavyweight “tequila sunrise” colored vinyl and comes with four 11×17 numbered posters, a Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood 24×36 poster, and one Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood 11×17 Map.
However, an Indie Retail exclusive comes pressed on 180 gram heavyweight orange vinyl and includes a Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood 24×36 poster and one Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood 11×17 Map. There’s also the Standard Vinyl for the unimaginative and less fortunate which lacks any color and simply includes a Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood 11×17 Map. You know what to do.
