Soundtrack to Baby Driver spans 30 tracks and multiple decades

On June 28th, Edgar Wright is going to save this bullshit summer movie season with Baby Driver. Starring Ansel Elgort, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, and Lily James, the film is the closest approximation to an action movie musical the silver screen has ever seen, and part of its genuine appeal is the unpredictable soundtrack.

As expected, said soundtrack is coming to both vinyl and CD, and hits stores on June 23rd via Danger Mouse’s Columbia Records imprint 30th Century Records. Spanning 30 tracks that race across the decades, this sucker runs 88 mph with the likes of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Beach Boys, The Damned, T. Rex, Beck, Blur, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Golden Earring, Simon and Garfunkel, and so much more. Of particular note is a new song from Sky Ferriera called “Easy”.

Those who pre-order the soundtrack right now will immediately receive “Chase Me” by Danger Mouse feat. Run The Jewels and Big Boi as well as “Baby Driver” by Simon and Garfunkel. Though, as someone who caught the film’s world premiere at South by Southwest this past March — and hasn’t shut the fuck up about it ever since — it would behoove you to not look at the tracklisting right now and, instead, grab the album once you see the film.

But hey, if you’re a soundtrack buff, that’s literally impossible and we know that feeling, so take a gander at the beautiful tracklist below and catch the new trailer for the film shortly after. Mark my words: This is the summer event you deserve as a high-paying moviegoer.
