This week we are thrilled to be releasing the BAFTA-winning Soundtrack to DUNE by Hans Zimmer, one of our favorite films of 2021 and one of our favorite scores of the last few years. Hans Zimmer has taken the notion of a sci-fi soundtrack to another level here, mixing electronics, orchestral flourishes and human voices to a dizzying effect that transports you right back to Arrakis.
Featuring original artwork by Greg Ruth, the 2XLP set is as stunning as you would imagine. Pressed on sand colored vinyl and housed inside a beautiful gatefold sleeve, the package is finished with a full-color, rigid outer plastic jacket capturing the majesty of DUNE perfectly. We'll also have a black vinyl repress available for those who missed out on the initial pressing of THE DUNE SKETCHBOOK 3XLP. Please note both releases are limited to 1 copy per person, per household, ect.
As always, all new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at 12PM CT.
DUNE - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK 2XLP
In association with WaterTower Music, Mondo is proud to present Hans Zimmer's BAFTA Award-winning score to Denis Villeneuve's incredible sci-fi epic DUNE. Mixing more traditional electronic and orchestral elements with Cubase instruments created especially for this project and fused with female voices singing in a language developed by Zimmer himself. The result is nothing short of jaw-dropping. It's otherworldly and completely enveloping, much like the sands on Arrakis. The music here is vast, open and sprawling but at its core is an emotional depth few other composers come close to.
DUNE - Original Motion picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Hans Zimmer. Artwork by Greg Ruth. Mastered by James Plotkin. Pressed on 2x 140-gram 'Sands of Arrakis vinyl'. Strictly 1 per person, per household. $40.

THE DUNE SKETCHBOOK - MUSIC FROM THE SOUNDTRACK 3XLP
We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing you an exclusive vinyl presentation of THE DUNE SKETCHBOOK by Hans Zimmer, in conjunction with WaterTower Music.
These extended suites from Denis Villeneuve's epic blockbuster, DUNE, are breathtaking in their scope and vision, both beautiful and dynamic. Our edition features incredible artwork from Greg Ruth, approved by both the composer and director. Don't miss out on one of our favorite releases of the year
THE DUNE SKETCHBOOK clocks in at an impressive 100 minutes across a mere nine tracks. It features all of Hans Zimmer’s typical bombast and deafening drums. These extended cues feature huge swathes of arpeggiated synths, vocal chants and rumbling bagpipes, moods run from ethereal to ominous, wistful to sorrowful and always become huge dramatic, loud and disorientating (sometimes all within the same cue). It truly is an epic for our times, and proves once again Hans Zimmer’s status as one of the world’s greatest living composers.
