The Academy Award-winning director incorporated multiple tracks from Gaye’s landmark LP, ‘What’s Going On’ throughout his new film, and offered a nod to Motown legends, The Temptations.
“This is a historic song for an important moment in history, and what’s beautiful is that its message is timeless and universal.”
Previously part of the expanded 40th anniversary edition of the 'Trouble Man' soundtrack, the tracks now become available on vinyl for the first time.
The 1978 album was described as “the most poisonous alimony settlement of the 20th century”, but it was much more than that.

To celebrate its 45th anniversary, Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’ single is being reissued as a 10” EP.
