Punch-Drunk Love - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP (Distro Title)
This product is currently sold out.
Mondo Music, in collaboration with Nonesuch Records and Rhino Entertainment Company, are proud to present the 20th anniversary vinyl re-issue of the soundtrack to Paul Thomas Anderson’s PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE.
Featuring the groundbreaking score by Jon Brion and original artwork by Greg Ruth, the album is available on 140 gram black vinyl.
PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, aka Paul Thomas Anderson’s “art-house Adam Sandler movie,” is loosely based on the exploits of a real man who accumulated over a million frequent flyer miles by buying pudding. More than that, it is one of the 21st century’s most singular films, one that we return to yearly, one that pushed the boundaries of romance, musical, and yes, Adam Sandler movies.
Jon Brion’s second solo score for Anderson cemented his reputation as a genius composer capable of elevating the work of our finest living filmmakers. Initiated well before principal photography, Brion’s music was intimately involved in the making of the film, his rhythms at times composing whole scenes themselves. Recording sessions were conducted throughout editing, with vintage RCA mics, prepared piano and multiple orchestras, inspired by the old MGM musicals that PTA loved. Anderson has always employed music brilliantly in his films, and in PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, the score is its bright and beating heart.
Interpolating oldies like Shelley Duvall’s “He Needs Me, ” (from POPEYE) and Conway Twitty’s “Danny,” the soundtrack also includes the beautiful “Waikiki,” performed by Ladies K. We’re proud to bring this intoxicating work to vinyl for the first time to coincide with the film’s 20th anniversary, with gorgeous original art by Greg Ruth.
