If you haven’t seen it yet, and you’re likely not reading this article if you have, Sorry to Bother You is a weird-ass hysterically great movie. The film was written/directed by Boots Riley and starred the amazingly talented Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson. Not only was the movie great, so was the soundtrack. Mondo has teamed up with Interscope Records to release the latter on vinyl. Details below!
MONDO PRESENTS THE PREMIERE VINYL RELEASE OF THE COUP’S SORRY TO BOTHER YOU
Mondo, in partnership with Interscope Records, is proud to present the premiere physical release of The Coup’s brilliant original soundtrack album to the film SORRY TO BOTHER YOU.
SORRY TO BOTHER YOU writer/director Boots Riley understands any potential confusion– after all, his band The Coup’s 2012 album, his film directorial debut, and said film’s soundtrack all share the same name. Riley wanted to settle the score once and for all, hence why the text on the front cover reads “This is the real, actual soundtrack to the movie Sorry To Bother You by The Coup (This has all new songs and is not to be confused with the album of the same name by the same band years ago…)”. But what’s missing from that information download is that this album is absolutely stacked: featuring guests Killer Mike, Janelle Monáe, Tune-Yards, E-40, and The Coup’s signature politically charged funk-hip-hop, and Riley’s incredible lyrical prowess. It was one of the Mondo Music teams’ favorite albums of 2018, and they are honored to finally share it with the fans of one of the boldest, funniest films in recent years.
Mondo’s SORRY TO BOTHER YOU soundtrack is available in two different packages designed by famed Oakland artist J. Otto Seibold (who also designed the film’s iconic logo), and is re-mastered for vinyl and pressed on 180 Gram white vinyl. The soundtrack will be available for purchase at MondoShop.com TODAY!
