Daft Punk marks 11th anniversary of “Tron: Legacy” soundtrack with vinyl reissue – News

Daft Punk’s iconic “Tron: Legacy” score from 2010 has been altered for the second time, 11 years after its debut.

Originally staged for the Disney film of the same name, Daft Punk’s “Tron: Legacy” soundtrack was the French duo’s only soundtrack, which was highly regarded.

Despite their split earlier this year, the duo have now released a second limited edition vinyl reissue music for the film to celebrate its 11th anniversary, with an earlier copy in store just over a year ago.

The double LP features a two-tone vinyl; a translucent, a light blue. Since the reissue, Daft Punk has climbed back to the top of the Billboard Top 100 and is now number one on the charts for dance and electronic albums.

According to Billboard, this marks the soundtrack’s 11th week in No. 1 and it’s the first in that position since April 2011.

After the release of the limited-edition, exclusive Target, sales data proved that 94% of the 10,000 copies sold between December 10 and December 16 were physical copies, as opposed to digital.

The record number comes as vinyl hits an all-time high in sales with statistics showing 2021 was the most successful year for the classic format reaching the most sales in almost 30 years.

“Tron: Legacy” was also re-released last year by US company Mondo Records, including seven bonuses that didn’t make the original 2010 CD release and an inner image of the duo.

Mondo Creative Director of Music Mo Shafeek said Collider before its re-release: “When we go to visit the Disney Music offices once a year, and every time we go, the team is very, very sweet and they’re like, ‘So what’s your dream list? “, did he declare. “‘Tron’ has always been on this list. “
