‘Donnie Darko’ soundtrack to be specially reissued on vinyl

The limited press of Michael Andrews’ score to the 2001 cult classic will be released on Friday

The soundtrack to the 2001 film Donnie Darko is being specially reissued on a limited edition vinyl.

The cult psychological drama, which starred Jake Gyllenhaal and was directed by Richard Kelly, celebrated its fifteenth anniversary back in January.

To further commemorate the release of the cult film, its acclaimed score – which was put together by composer Michael Andrews – is being specially reissued on a limited edition vinyl. As The Vinyl Factory reports, the soundtrack is getting a limited repress on green marble vinyl, which you can see below.


Featured on the score is Andrews and Gary Jules’ rendition of ‘Mad World’ – their cover of the 1982 Tears For Fears song famously earned the duo an unlikely Christmas Number One in the UK back in 2003.

The reissue of the Donnie Darko soundtrack will be released on Friday (October 14), but is strictly limited to just 300 copies, with pre-orders already sold out. See more details here.
