Portishead's Geoff Barrow is set to release the soundtrack to last year's Drive on vinyl, through his Invada Records label.

The soundtrack to the Ryan Gosling starring film featured 1980s electro-pop inspired music by Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx, Cliff Martinez, The Chromatics, Desire and Riziero Ortolani.

The soundtrack will get its first vinyl release on May 21. Of the release, Barrow has said – via The Quietus: "I am very excited for Invada Records to release the Drive soundtrack on vinyl. It is nice to see good music allowed to play a pivotal role in a great film."

Last year Barrow told Rolling Stone, that Portishead have planned to start work on the follow-up to 2008's 'Third', this year.

He went on to say that Portishead have vowed not to release any special editions of their records - unless they're forced into it contractually by their label. The Bristol band's acclaimed debut LP 'Dummy' will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2014, but Barrow has warned fans not to hold their breath for a reissue featuring outtakes or alternative versions of songs.

He said that special editions had become a "dirty word" in the group, arguing that they are simply a tool to "squeeze more money" out of fans.
