Videodrome artwork by Rich KellyImage: Rich Kelly/MondoAlmost 40 years following its release, David Cronenberg’s Videodrome rings true still. A sci-fi horror thriller in regards to a TV channel that may you need to be murdering people in an effort to corrupt perverted Americans somehow now, within an era of streaming, social media marketing, and 24/7 news, feels newer an ever. Even though the film has remained timeless disturbingly, its music has remained absent oddly.AdvertisementPrevious releases of the film’s score, compiled by Oscar-winning Lord of the Rings composer Howard Shore, weren’t the entire, original score-just remixes. However now, for the very first time ever, the score has been restored from the initial session masters and supervised by Shore himself. This Wednesday mondo will release it on vinyl with artwork by Rich Kelly, February 23, but io9 offers your exclusive first look.

Not just the manufacturing process – since our first collaboration with HOWE Records (Scanners / The Brood, in 2014) we’ve been working towards re-issuing Videodrome [for] 8 years!”“Even at our most optimistic we thought the very best we’re able to achieve was a primary re-issue of the initial 1983 Videodrome album. We never may have imagined that Howard Shore will be heading back to his master tapes to place the album together for the very first time ever,” he said.AdvertisementPressed on 180 gram color vinyl, and on 180 gram black vinyl also, Videodrome will undoubtedly be designed for $30 pre-order directly at (Along with vinyl, it’ll be accessible on CD through La-La Land Records also, and through Back Lot Music digitally.)
