The soundtrack to Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” needs no introduction, and is hailed one of the greatest and most iconic film scores of recent times. Invada Records and Lakeshore Records are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release with a limited edition double LP.
The soundtrack features the legendary synth score by Cliff Martinez along with tracks by artists such as College and The Chromatics. The vinyl artwork has been completely re-designed, and features stunning new packaging exploring the film’s Noir element through the use of black and white imagery.
The soundtrack is pressed on all new one disc blue marble / one disc pink marble vinyl lp, with the records housed in beautiful double sided printed inner sleeves, and a deluxe gatefold outer sleeve.
This is a limited edition anniversary pressing, and once it’s gone it won’t be re-pressed.
Drive was a smash hit upon release as it charted at #4 on the iTunes album chart and peaked at #35 on the Billboard Top 200. Accolades came rolling in such as Spin Magazine that lists it as one of the “Top 40 Movie Soundtracks The Changed Alternative Music.
Notes Martinez: “The words ‘hit’ and ‘soundtrack’ seldom appear in the same sentence. The score to Drive is the closest I’ve ever come to having anything of the sort. And I wish I knew the recipe for it’s success as no one is more eager than me to repeat the experience.”
