Time to get riggidy riggidy wrecked son!
For the first time since the show aired in 2013, Rick and Morty is getting an official release for its soundtrack on both vinyl and CD. Available from Sub Pop, the track listing will consist of Ryan Elder's original score as well as curated music that appears in the show like Mazzy Star's "Look on Down from the Bridge. "
The song was famously used in the episode "Rick Potion No. 9," where Rick accidentally transforms the Earth's population into Cronenbergian monsters. He finds a reality, where he and Morty die from an explosion, and the two simply take over the lives of their dead parallel selves. Mazzy's funeral-like tune plays as a horrified Morty buries his own corpse and walks into his new house like nothing has happened.
You'll also receive such classic hits as "Get Schwifty," "Human Music," and "Goodbye Moonmen," which was sung by Jemaine Clement (the voice of Fart in "Mortynight Run").
Take a look at the trippy cover art:
Purchasers will have the choice of "Standard" and "Deluxe" editions. The former comprises a CD, a double LP, and digital downloads of both; the latter comes with "an exclusive 'Portal-colored vinyl,' along with a custom poster, a patch, a sticker, and a bonus 7” single (featuring an extended mix of the screaming sun from the 2nd season finale, pressed on clear vinyl)." On top of that, you'll also get the soundtrack on a,"cassette tape on a special colored shell featuring custom J-card inserts."
All of the "Deluxe" items will come in a beautifully-rendered box with a plexiglass cover, which lights up under the glare of LEDs.
The "Standard" edition of the soundtrack becomes available Sep. 28. Those wanting to buy the "Deluxe Box Set" will have to wait until Nov. 23.
