Details of deluxe vinyl edition release by Nashville based label
Jack White‘s Third Man Records are set to release a version of the soundtrack to The Great Gatsby on gold and platinum vinyl, it has been revealed.
The deluxe vinyl version will consist of 17 tracks – three more than the standard CD version – and be bound in a gatefold sleeve. The vinyl used on Third Man’s deluxe edition of the soundtrack is described as “blindingly reflective metalized discs”, and will be the first-ever commercially available records produced in the style. Both the standard and deluxe editions of the vinyl release will be packaged in a “laser-cut wooden LP jacket riveted to aluminum spines” complete with the “Art Deco-meets-modern” style of the Baz Luhrmann movie.
Retailing at £160, the The Great Gatsby soundtrack will be available from May 10 at 9am with 100 copies also available from Third Man’s Nashville store on the same day. Scroll down to see a video of the vinyl release details now.
White also features on the soundtrack to the forthcoming Baz Luhrmann directed version of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel. His contribution to the record, ‘Love Is Blindness’, will be released on seven-inch by Third Man, as will various other tracks from the album.
The album, released in the UK on May 6, features new songs from Florence And The Machine, The xx, Gotye, Bryan Ferry, Will.i.am and Nero.
