The Django Unchained Original Motion Picture was released in stores and on digital retailers today, and the Soundtrack is also currently streaming at UnchainedSoundtrack.Com. Django Unchained is the first time that director Quentin Tarantino has collaborated with artists to create original music for use in the film and original motion picture soundtrack.
Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained Original Motion Picture Soundtrack includes Rick Ross' "100 Black Coffins" produced by and featuring Jamie Foxx, John Legend's soulful offering "Who Did That To You?," "Ancora Qui" by Honorary Academy Award® Winner Ennio Morricone and Elisa, and many more songs.
"I want to thank all the artists who contributed original songs (a first for me) to the picture. Most of these contributions came out of the artists' own inspiration and their illustration of the film's soul is invaluable," said Quentin Tarantino. "In addition to the new original songs I am also using a lot of older recordings on the soundtrack - many of which came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up versions of these recordings from the 60's and 70's, I wanted to use the vinyl I've been listening to for years - complete with all the pops and cracks. I even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people's experience to be the same as mine when they hear this soundtrack for the first time."
Django Unchained will be released in theaters on December 25, 2012.
