Mondo reissuing Danny Elfman’s iconic Batman score

on November 08, 2018, 8:00am

You wanna get nuts? C’mon! Let’s get nuts!

Getting ahead of next year’s 30th anniversary, Mondo has announced a reissue of Danny Elfman’s iconic score to Tim Burton’s Batman. It’s one of the many new and improved Joker products, all with a secret ingredient: vinyl.

Similar to its prior release for Batman Returns, Mondo is issuing two versions of the score: an expanded edition that’s limited to 2,000 copies and a more standard release. Both were produced by Neil S. Bulk and both feature museum-ready artwork by Kilian Eng.

The more exclusive, expanded release will assuredly broaden your minds with extended cues spread across two Batman vs. Joker colored vinyls. In other words, one disc comes pressed with a yellow and black swirl, while the other is purple and green.

Well, I’m no Picasso, but do you like it? If not, perhaps the standard issue is more to your liking. This one features the original score with no extra goodies and comes pressed on a single 180 gram LP that’s a mix of purple and black.

Both go on sale later this month, just in time for the holidays, making THIS … your number one … a-GIFT this Christmas! So, think about the future and watch for the signal over at Mondo’s official site. Because once they’re on sale, they’re going to ship ’em ALLLLLLLL and take ’em out a WHOLE NEW DOOR!

Peep the art and tracklists below.
