Jordan Peel’s Nope wasn’t just a great film. It also had a rad soundtrack and score to boot. Waxwork Records made sure to focus their attention on the new rad score by way of a beautiful new vinyl with artwork from Ethan Mesa and we are glad they did.
The synopsis for Nope went like this:
“Two siblings running a horse ranch in California discover something wonderful and sinister in the skies above, while the owner of an adjacent theme park tries to profit from the mysterious, otherworldly phenomenon.”
The Nope soundtrack includes:
The Complete Film Score by Michael Abels Original Artwork by Ethan Mesa180-gram “Cloud and Pennant Banner” Colored VinylHeavyweight Gatefold JacketLiner Notes from Tyree Boyd-Pates 12”x12” Booklet
Nope marks Abels’ third feature film score with director Jordan Peele, having previously scored Peele’s GET OUT and US. The album also features songs from the film, including a new version of Corey Hart’s classic “Sunglasses at Night (Jean Jacket Mix)”, Dionne Warwick’s “Walk on By”, The Lost Generation’s “This is the Lost Generation”, Exuma’s “Exuma, the Obeah Man”, and a never-before-released gem by a young Jodie Foster, “La Vie C’est Chouette” from the 1977 film MOI, FLEUR BLEUE.
You can head over to Waxwork Records now to place your Pre-order on the Nope soundtrack. The record is due to ship out this December.
