Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack to be released on vinyl

Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch’s original soundtrack to Blade Runner 2049, which features songs by Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, is to be released on vinyl on 15 December.

Originally composed by Johann Johannsson, before he was then replaced by the two aforementioned composers, the soundtrack has been critically acclaimed, as it follows in the footsteps of Vangelis’ pioneering soundtrack to the original ‘Blade Runner’.

The soundtrack will include 24 tracks from the film, and only 2,500 copies are to be released.

Blade Runner’s influence on electronic music was explored in a documentary by FACT Magazine:
