Vanilla Sky Vinyl

Comments Off


I’m very pleased to announce that the Vanilla Sky soundtrack will be released in a special limited edition double vinyl version. Andy Fisher over at Vinyl Films has done a great job with this (and the Almost Famous Vinyl). Hurry there’s still a few left.)

“In conjunction with Reprise Records and Paramount Pictures, Classic Records and Vinyl Films are proud to begin work on the Limited Edition release of the soundtrack to the film ‘Vanilla Sky’ on 180-gram virgin vinyl. Classic Records and Vinyl Films previously partnered on last December’s ‘Untitled’ release, the expanded soundtrack to ‘Almost Famous.’

The outer gatefold artwork of the Vanilla Sky LP is an homage to The Beatles’ ‘White Album’, with a simple, elegant, ghostly photograph of David Aames gracing the front cover. The inner gatefold begins with an iconic image of David Aames in the mask, overlooking the album credits. From there, the inner gatefold is a 5-page booklet literally packed with images from Vanilla Sky, giving the movie fan a rare behind-the-scenes look at the making of Vanilla Sky, both behind and in front of the camera. The labels of each album-side have a different interpretation of David Aames’ mask sketched by Vanilla Sky storyboard artist Alex Hill.

Further sweetening the pot for the fans, each of the first 2500 Vanilla Sky LPs is numbered, and comes with 12 frames from an actual print of the film! These films strips come in a silkscreened glassine envelope with a sketch of the mask lying in the street next to David Aames’ hand. The envelope is labeled ‘a piece of the puzzle’. Each envelope has a strip of film from one of the many classic scenes from Vanilla Sky. The scenes used most will be the club scene, the rooftop scene, the car crash, and of course, the mind-numbing opening sequence where David Aames finds himself all alone in one of the most recognizable plots of land in the world, New York’s Times Square.

A few random copies of the album will be signed by Vanilla Sky writer-director Cameron Crowe, and a few by score composer Nancy Wilson. The Vanilla Sky LP is the perfect companion piece to the Vanilla Sky DVD and is available for pre-orders at www.classicrecords.com, and will be available to ship May 15th.”

Vanilla Sky Soundtrack Details

Comments Off


The Vanilla Sky soundtrack will be released December 4th. Radiohead and Paul McCartney are among the artists, plus there’s a few tunes from Nancy Wilson. The Red House Painters (Mark Kozelek’s band) will also be featured. Sadly, there will be no Beatles’ songs (not sure if that rumor was true).

Here’s the mini press release and tracklisting:

As with all of rock journalist-turned-screenwriter Cameron Crowe’s films, from “Singles” to “Jerry Maguire” to his most recent, the Grammy-winning “Almost Famous,” music not only plays an important role but has resulted in best-selling albums. The soundtrack album to “Vanilla Sky” promises to be no exception. From the title song by Paul McCartney to classic rock, from modern heroes such as R.E.M. and Peter Gabriel to Generation X, Y and Z stars such as Radiohead and Sigur Ros, from Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley to Todd Rundgren and the film’s score composer, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, “Vanilla Sky” paints a musical landscape appealing to the ears of a wide audience.

Soundtrack Selections (tentative/not sequenced):

  • Everything In It’s Right Place – Radiohead
Last Goodbye – Jeff Buckley
  • Vanilla Sky – Paul McCartney
  • Solsbury Hill – Peter Gabriel
