Third Man Records has released a limited edition gold and platinum record set for the feature film The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack. Assembled by hand, the deluxe metallized discs come packaged in a laser-cut birch wood LP jacket, riveted to aluminium spines.
The soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel was executively produced by Jay Z and features an all-star line-up with Jack White, Florence +The Machine, Beyoncé & André 3000, will.i.am, Lana Del Rey, and more.
These unique hand made sets will retail for $250 and will be available in a limited number through the Third Man website (US only). Third Man is also announcing the release date of June 11th for the standard edition double album. The soundtrack will be on 180 gram vinyl and housed in a Gold Foil stamped gatefold sleeve.
Beautiful Noise - Music Documentary
Cocteau Twins, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine, their unique sounds inspired generations of bands.
The definitive documentary about influential 80’s and 90’s guitar bands who harnessed massively loud sounds using a sea of effects pedals and delivered some of the most BEAUTIFUL NOISE ever recorded.
8 years in the making, with over 50 interviews, band members, music icons and tastemakers.
BEAUTIFUL NOISE is an in-depth exploration of a music movement in the late 20th century, a fascinating period when some innovative musicians mixed guitar noise into conventional pop song structures while maintaining a philosophy of letting the music speak for itself.
Although many of the people interviewed are notoriously press shy they have opened up about their music and experiences from over 20 years ago; how they defied the rules and became sonic innovators that have inspired so many.
Currently the documentary is in the final stages for worldwide release, and we need your help to raise the $75,000 to pay for limited run licensing and finishing costs to distribute in Film Festivals and on DVD/Blu-Ray.
This documentary will finally be released only if the fans of this music believe in this project and contribute.
