This eight-piece vinyl set for The Mandalorian looks absolutely stunning.
The Mandalorian fans will have a new cool way to listen to the masterful soundtrack from Ludwig Göransson, and it looks like a collector’s item that doubles as works of art.
Mondo has partnered with Walt Disney Records to release an eight-piece vinyl set including music from all episodes of The Mandalorian. Now, it must be noted that this set is a limited edition. Mondo says that the set is limited to 3,500 units, and there is only one purchase per household. This set is being sold for $200, and it already started its presale on Aug. 26. As of this publishing, it still looks like there’s enough time to order a copy on their website. If you do pre-order the set, the website says orders will begin shipping no sooner than November 2020.
Aside from the music, the best part about this has to be the artwork for each sleeve. The artwork comes from Paul Mann, and each episode has its own dedicated picture. You can see a bit of that artwork, including an overview of the entire set, in the photos down below.
“It’s no longer a secret that Ludwig Göransson is the most talented and exciting person working in film and television music right now,” Mo Shafeek, Mondo creative director of music, said in a press release. “But what goes unspoken is his chameleon-like ability to play within multiple genres, even within single cues of his songwriting for the screen. His music for films like Creed and Black Panther showcase not only his collaborative nature, but also his relationship to pop and hip hop, as well as blending untraditional instrumentation with traditional orchestras.”
While this may seem like something that could hold you over until the next season of The Mandalorian, the set will supposedly be released after the new season begins streaming. No date has been set in stone yet, but it looks like the season is on track to come out in October of this year. Some are even hopeful that a trailer for season 2 will be released sooner rather than later, especially seeing as the trailer was a no-show last month.
Still, it’s good to know that we’re not too far away from the new season. And, on top of that, we’re not too far away from hearing new music from Ludwig Göransson either.
