Published Dec 14, 2015Get ready to slap your faces in excitement, you filthy animals, as soundtrack mecca Mondo has just unveiled details on the 25th anniversary edition of John Williams' score to Christmastime classic, Home Alone. Lest you're looking to pull a wet bandit-style heist at the company's headquarters in Austin, you can order the set with the rest of us later this week.
A press release from the soundtrack hub explains that a double-LP edition of Williams' score for the 1990 film goes on sale Wednesday (December 16), while the records are expected to ship sometime in the middle of January.
The 19-track collection houses many cues from Williams (Star Wars, Superman), taken from airport scenes and bandit-smashing pranks pulled during the great McCallister family disaster of 1990. There are, however, a few extra seasonal songs making their way into the tracklisting. This includes cuts from Southside Johnny Lyon, Mel Torme, and the Drifters' version of "White Christmas."
Vinyl variants will be offered up on translucent "red & green ornament"-coloured vinyl and "cheese pizza"-tinted wax.
As for the artwork, Mondo tapped Andrew Kolb to deliver illustrations of the McCallister household. That's the front cover up above, while you'll find the inner gatefold schematic of Kevin's booby trap-heavy stomping grounds down below.
