Varèse Sarabande to release the Star Wars: Shadows Of The Empire Soundtrack on vinyl

Varèse Sarabande have just announced that they will be releasing the soundtrack to Star Wars: Shadows Of The Empire on vinyl.

This is being branded as the “original video game soundtrack”, although in reality this release, which came out originally in 1996 on CD, is the soundtrack to the novel of the same name (which the game is based on). Only four tracks from this release was actually used in the Nintendo 64 game.

The release is a single LP on black vinyl and will be housed in a regular LP jacket with the original artwork by Drew Struzan from the 1996 CD release.

It is priced at $22 and is scheduled to release on August 7, 2020. It can be preordered from Varèse Sarabande here.
