Ghost in the Shell Soundtrack Getting a Vinyl Reissue
With the new live-action remake now in theaters, Ghost in the Shell fans should rejoice that the soundtrack for the original 1995 anime film is getting a vinyl reissue. The reissue will be a complete remastering of the original sound with 10 tracks and many extras.
Original Ghost in the Shell Sound Going Vinyl
The vinyl reissue of the original Ghost in the Shell soundtrack will come with a 7-inch bonus and several extra collectibles in the package. We Release Whatever the Fuck We Want Records is releasing it on the heals of their most recent release: Midori Takada’s Through the Looking Glass.
Regardless of what you think of the new live-action remake, you owe it to yourself to watch the original animated Ghost in the Shell movie. It is one of those must-see classic animated films. It has great action, epic themes, and a plot that makes you think with an epic soundtrack. The soundtrack’s techno-rock music matches the feel and emotions of the cyber-punk film and lifestyle. The timeless tones echoing the themes of the film making you question the nature of humanity.
With that said, the upcoming vinyl re-mastered release comes from the original reels at Emil Berliner Studios in two formats. The first will be a limited collector’s edition with the 7-inch bonus LP with silver gilt printing, Japanese obi, and a 24-page liner notes booklet. The second version will be just the standard main 10-track LP. Which version is right for you will come done to preference and how much you are willing to pay. Regardless, both versions are due in June from the WRWTFWW website.
