Danny Elfman's 'Goosebumps' Score Gets Vinyl Release on Waxwork
Published Oct 27, 2015After launching a horror comic imprint earlier this week, Waxwork Records has revealed it will likewise be saluting the page-turning Goosebumps series with a soundtrack release behind the recently released big-screen adaptation. A pre-sale for the Danny Elfman-crafted scored work goes live on Friday (October 30).
A press release from the imprint confirms that it's got the green light from series author R.L. Stine and Scholastic to press up the soundtrack. It features music crafted for the Jack Black vehicle by legendary composer Elfman (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas).
On the design front, the label reports that it's opted "to meet every detail of the original books from the 1990's!" Fittingly, it has tapped original book cover illustrator Tim Jacobus to deliver creepy, exclusive jacket art. Jacobus had previously whipped up pieces for all 62 Goosebumps novels.
You'll find the soundtrack's cover art of a skeleton movie theatre employee hocking tickets to Goosebumps up above.
"The Waxwork Records crew grew up reading R.L. Stine's Goosebumps books feverishly," the label said in a statement, "and we, like so many millions of Goosebumps fans across the world, became obsessed with the horrific, yet bright, colourful, and welcoming artwork by Tim Jacobus that graced each book cover."
Coloured vinyl options have not yet been detailed by Waxwork, though that could change by the time the pre-orders start up on Friday.
Goosebumps is in theatres now.
