Following the demand for this year’s four-picture disc, vinyl-only release of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Seven Evil Exes Edition, ABKCO will release the expanded edition digitally July 9.
The Seven Evil Exes Edition includes twelve previously unreleased tracks by Beck, Plumtree, Nigel Godrich, the fictitious band Sex Bob-Omb, and the oft-requested version of Metric’s “Black Sheep” with actress Brie Larson on vocals (as seen in the film).
The expanded edition will incorporate all nineteen tracks from the original 2010 soundtrack for Edgar Wright’s cult film adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel series plus the 12 bonus tracks that have never before been offered on streaming platforms.
The entire process took two years of Godrich’s life, during which he essentially cast ultimate fantasy bands and got non-musician actors to learn their respective instruments with the aid of Chris Murphy from the band Sloan. The original soundtrack went to No.2 on the Billboard soundtrack chart and also includes songs by Frank Black, Beachwood Sparks, Black Lips, T. Rex, Blood Red Shoes, The Rolling Stones, and The Bluetones.
UK’s The Independent ranked it at No.4 out of “the 40 greatest film soundtracks of all time,” declaring that Wright “found a way to seamlessly integrate his soundtrack into Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’s narrative.” It was also included on Alternative Press’ list of “16 Fantastic Movie Soundtracks You Need To Hear.” “We Are Sex Bob-Omb” won the 2010 Houston Film Critics Society Award for Best Original Song.
In addition to the Seven Evil Exes 4LP edition, ABKCO will offer the original LP of the soundtrack as the Ramona Flowers Edition on blue, green, and pink vinyl, representing the colors of the character’s hair throughout the film.
