John Carpenter’s 1989 cult car horror score is being reissued on vinyl for the first time.
TAKEN FROM THE VINYL FACTORY LIMITED GB : Originally released by Varèse Sarabande (VS-5240) , followed by a second Motown version that same year, Carpenter created the haunted moto-synthscapes for Christine with frequent collaborator Alan Howarth.
My contact on Varèse confirm : “Cats out of the bag, yep that’s us! We have commissioned new art and I must say it looks FANTASTIC! We’ll be announcing this on our Twitter and Facebook page WITH the new art on August 16th, join us then Fabio and SPREAD the word on this cool new vinyl product!
(THE COVER YOU ‘RE LOOKING UPSTAIRS WAS MADE BY MYSELF AS “FANMADE”)
Little information about the LP has been release, but its scant Amazon listing hints at the existence of a blue variant, while SoundStage has a black version for pre-sale as well.Pre-order the blue vinyl here or the black version here ahead of its 29 September 2017 release, and listen to track ‘Christine Attack’ below.
