Mondo Music in partnership with Hollywood Records and Marvel Music, is proud to present the first in a series of MCU soundtracks: the premiere vinyl release for Marvel Studios’ ANT-MAN AND THE WASP.
Award-winning composer Christophe Beck re-teamed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe to score Marvel Studios' ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, the sequel to 2015's Marvel Studios' ANT-MAN, one of the most kinetic and musically inventive chapters in the on-going series.
The closing credits theme, "It Ain't Over 'Til The Wasp Lady Stings," is sequenced at the beginning of the album to properly prepare you for the brilliant work of what Beck is doing in this film and for these characters. Bouncing between themes epic in scope, emotionally powerful ("Ghost in the Machine"), action-packed ("Hot Wheels") and light on its feet ("World's Greatest Grandma"), his work here is musically lush and multi -layered, absolutely begging for repeat listens. This is one of the MCU's most dynamic and entertaining soundtracks.
Featuring original artwork by Phantom City Creative and 14 previously unreleased bonus tracks, pressed on 2X 180 Gram Split Colored vinyl (limited to 1,000 copies) or 2X 180 Gram Solid Colored vinyl. Also available on Black vinyl.

Marvel's LUKE CAGE - SEASON TWO - Original Soundtrack 2XLP
