Mondo, in partnership with Back Lot Music, is proud to present the original motion picture soundtrack to Damien Chazelle's film FIRST MAN on vinyl. The soundtrack features new music from two-time Academy Award®-winner Justin Hurwitz, as well as a recording of Leon Bridges performing "Whitey on the Moon," in character as Gil Scott Heron. On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, LA LA LAND, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling re-team for FIRST MAN - the riveting story behind the first manned-mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading up to the historic Apollo 11 flight. It's visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong's perspective, based on the book by James R. Hansen. The film explores the triumphs and the cost on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself of one of the most dangerous missions in history. The film's harmonious score features orchestra mixed with vintage electronics, including the Theremin. Regarding that choice of instrumentation, Hurwitz said, "As soon as I found the main theme at the piano, Damien suggested using a Theremin to express that melody throughout the movie. I got one and started learning to play it and loved how emotional and expressive the instrument could be. With it's wailing quality, we were able to capture the type of cosmic pain that suited Neil's story."
