If you haven’t watched Stranger Things on Netflix yet, you are probably tired of hearing and reading about it. I understand; I really do.
The thing is … those of us who have watched Stranger Things are a bit obsessed with it right now, so even the smallest bit of news is worth getting excited about.
The announcement came today that Volume 1 of the show’s official soundtrack is coming out digitally this Friday, August 12, with a CD release not far behind. Volume 2 is out digitally August 19. All music is by S U R V I V E, a synth-heavy group that has gained a ton of popularity as a result of their work on the show.
A vinyl release will eventually come, I’m sure, because a fairly-priced 2-LP set is exactly the kind of thing vinyl nerds like myself would gladly purchase the day it was released. If they saved something like that for the next Record Store Day, it would be a guaranteed hit.
