‘Stranger Things 2’ soundtrack gets the vinyl release it deserves
Last year, Stranger Things exploded into one of the top pop culture highlights of 2016 and the hype around the second season of Netflix’s 80s fetishizing smash hit has largely picked up and progressed from exactly where the show’s pilot season left off. The sci-fi sensation is an authentic examination and homage to the 1980’s matched with a dark, contemporary take on the decade’s immortalized synth rock and new wave sonics, scored by members of Austin-based synthesizer quartet S U R V I V E. Now, the second season’s soundtrack is getting a vinyl release that’s as quintessentially Stranger Things as it gets.
Multiple vinyl versions will be pressed and released, led by the “Upside Down Inter-dimensional Blue Vinyl,” available on December 22 via Lakeshore Records. Early 2018 will bring three additional versions, including a “Purple Crystal Vinyl,” a blue and white splattered “Crystal Clear Vinyl” and a standard 180 gram black vinyl on January 12, via Invada.
And, if you’re like us at DA, and shamelessly devour all Stranger Things content with little regard or self restraint, then enjoy everyone’s favorite freshman foursome in this cheeky Late Late Show appearance with James Corden where the boys play reuniting members of Motown supergroup The Upside Downs after television superstardom strikes.
