Atlantic Records and Warner Bros. Records have unveiled details of a groundbreaking musical experience tied to VINYL, the highly anticipated new HBO drama series from Executive Producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter. Weekly musical offerings kick off with Vinyl: Music From The HBO® Original Series – Volume 1, a full length musical companion to the series’ premiere episode, airing February 15 on Showcase in Australia.
Informed by Scorsese’s renowned innovative use of music in film and Jagger’s intimate insight on the era, Volume 1 takes the listener on a musical journey with new and previously released material - all featured in the season premiere - from an array of rising stars and legendary artists, including the one and only David Johansen, who revitalizes a pair of classics by his seminal group the New York Dolls with re-recordings exclusively for the series. Original highlights include No Good, the breakout rock single from Elektra/Atlantic recording artist Kaleo that was featured in the latest Vinyl trailer, and Sugar Daddy (Theme From Vinyl), the series’ main title and first new music from Grammy® Award-nominated, Atlantic recording artist Sturgill Simpson.
Volume 1 further showcases material featured in the series premiere, including the original song Rotten Apple, co-written by Vinyl co-star James Jagger along with Mick Jagger, Luis Felber and James Dunson, and performed by Nasty Bits, a band featured in the show that is fronted by James Jagger. Additional highlights include tracks from Soda Machine and Vintage Trouble’s Ty Taylor – who has also been cast as the singing voice of the series’ character Lester Grimes. The soundtrack also captures the electric energy of New York City in the 1970s via a bounty of indelible pop, rock, disco, and soul favourites from such iconic stars as Otis Redding, Foghat, Jimmy Castor Bunch, Dee Dee Warwick, Edgar Winter, The Meters, and much more.
Each week will also bring a robust slate of new content in the form of musical offerings tied to every episode throughout the season. This first-of-its-kind slate of musical offerings will culminate with a second full-length soundtrack, Vinyl: Music From The HBO® Original Series – Volume 1: Finale, to be released on Friday April 15, coinciding with the season finale, airing in April.
The entire Vinyl: Music From The HBO® Original Series catalog was produced by the Grammy winning trio behind Boardwalk Empire Volume 1: Music From The HBO Original Series comprised of Vinyl music supervisor Randall Poster (The Grand Budapest Hotel: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, The Wolf Of Wall Street: Music From The Motion Picture), Atlantic Records Group President of Film & Television/Atlantic Records Executive Vice President Kevin Weaver (Furious 7: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, The Fault In Our Stars: Music From The Motion Picture), and Vinyl music producer Stewart Lerman.
