RIYL: Sufjan Stevens, Ryuichi Sakamoto, The Psychedelic Furs
Label: Sony Classical
This one is flying off the shelves, which, for a Sufjan Steven’s fan is a must have due to it being the first time he has composed for a soundtrack. It’s currently sold out at FYE, Bull Moose, Rough Trade, etc, but you can find it at a few other places, such as Barnes & Nobles, Ameoba & Merchbar. Here is a little write up on the soundtrack:
Guadagnino [director] found himself resonating with Sufjan Stevens’ lyricism through his work and initially asked Stevens to record an original song. Eventually, Stevens contributed three songs to the soundtrack: “Visions of Gideon”, which was used at the end of the film, “Mystery of Love,” which was featured in the film’s first trailer and a new rendition of “Futile Devices” with piano. Stevens penned the songs by using the script, the book, and the conversations with the director about the characters. It marks Sufjan Stevens’ first soundtrack for a feature film.
The soundtrack also features songs by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Giorgio Moroder, The Psychedelic Furs and many others.
Limited double 180gm blue colored vinyl LP pressing Numbered Edition. Original soundtrack to the 2017 motion picture. Composing the soundtrack are Sufjan Stevens and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
