RIYL: Soundtracks, Tarantino movies, Cool Runnings, marimbas, fruity rum drinks

Label: Enjoy the Ride Records

If you’re one of the people who got excited earlier this summer for the recent True Romance soundtrack pressing then do I have a new release for you!

Available for the first time on any format(aside from just watching the movie) is Hans Zimmer marimba filled score for True Romance. As the story goes he had originally written the score for a full orchestra but then after director Tony Scott went over budget on the movie Zimmer was told he only had enough funding for 9 musicians.

What we ended up with was a marimba and sunshine filled score that goes perfect with a daiquiri, mojito, or whatever your preferred fruity rum drink. Or hey, I suppose if you’re in California, Colorado, Nevada, or Washington then you can legally partake in Brad Pitt’s favorite substance from the movie.

Enjoy The Ride Records will have a couple exclusive variants which will be available on Friday July 21 in the Enjoy The Ride web store at EnjoyTheRide.Storenvy.Com:

Coke Explosion variant (100 copies)
Leopard Print Splatter (250 copies)
*Each copy comes with a bonus 7″ of previously unreleased score tracks on Cadillac Purple.

For the you completists, ballers, and test press lovers there is also an extra special limited test press package available for a cool $149.99. Here’s everything that you get in the bundle:

*BOTH of the Enjoy The Ride Records web store exclusive variants (Coke Explosion variant, limited to 100 copies and Leopard Print Splatter, limited to 250 copies)
*a very limited alt artwork die cut hand numbered jacket (/24).
*The test presses are pressed on plain BLACK vinyl with blank center labels. They are the ONLY copies pressed on traditional black vinyl.
The test press bundles are available right over here

New York, July 19, 2017 – Enjoy The Ride Records is proud to announce the release of the True Romance Original Motion Picture Score, available for the first time in any format. The score, which had been previously unreleased until now, features the music of renowned film score composer and record producer Hans Zimmer.

Recorded on a budget of nine musicians (after being told the plans for a full orchestra had to be scrapped due to director Tony Scott going over budget), Hans Zimmer's True Romance score features percussion instruments xylophones and marimbas to create innocent noise, a reflection of the lead characters - Alabama + Clarence Worley - in the violently dark comedy written by Quentin Tarantino. Featuring original art by Steven Wild, the art captures the spirit of the iconic characters the cult classic film.

German film score composer and record producer Hans Zimmer has composed over 150 film scores in his vast career, some of which include Crimson Tide, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Gladiator, The Lion King, The Pirates of the Caribbean series, and True Romance. This carefully mastered score will bring you back to the innocence and the intensity of the film, which fans had only been able to experience by watching the film in the theater or in their homes.
