Sure, most fans at the intersection of music snobs and sci-fi geek probably already have a copy of the Star Wars soundtrack — but you’re going to need to buy another one. Sorry.
A new, two-disc picture disc reissue of John Williams’ iconic Star Wars: A New Hope is on the way later this month, and they chose some really pretty pictures. The coolest? A pressing with the Death Star in all its glory, along with Darth Vader’s visage on the B side. The second disc features a gorgeous X-Wing dogfight (along with Han and Chewie on the other side), which is also nothing to sneeze at.
It looks amazing, and the soundtrack is one of the greatest cinema scores ever recorded, so there are far worse ways to spend your money. If you don’t have a record player, you should probably buy one. Solely for this (and these!).
The set is up for pre-order now, and will set you back $35. It’s slated to hit shelves Sept. 30. So, like, take a break from mainlining Luke Cage on Netflix that day and hit up your record store.
