The sounds of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are getting a more stylish homecoming, thanks to Mondo Music and Marvel Music/Hollywood Records.

Starting with Ant-Man and The Wasp, the soundtracks of the MCU roster of films are getting a new series of physical vinyl releases, EW can exclusively reveal.

For the cinematic team-up of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), the release in particular comes complete with collectible artwork designed by Phantom City Creative and 14 previously unreleased bonus tracks.

Oscar-nominated Black Panther (with a score composed by Ludwig Goransson) and Thor: Ragnarok (with compositions scored by Mark Mothersbaugh) are next on the docket.

“Over the last 10 years, Marvel Studios has assembled such an incredible array of composers to craft new music for their ever expanding universe of characters… some who’ve already had classic themes in past incarnations, and some who’ve never had a presence on the big screen,” Mo Shafeek, Mondo Music Record Label Manager, said in a statement. “The roster is outrageous on paper: everyone from Alan Silvestri and Michael Giacchino, to Mark Mothersbaugh and Ludwig Goransson, to, most recently, Pinar Toprak who did amazing work on Captain Marvel. We are honored to start our MCU soundtrack series with Ant-Man and The Wasp (one of our favorite superhero themes of the last few years for us was Christophe Beck’s earworm theme for Ant-Man) and cannot wait to see what comes next!”

Christophe Beck’s film score for Ant-Man and The Wasp gets a size-warping display with cover art featuring our titular dynamic duo, as well as imagery for the phase-shifting Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen).

“I had previously created a theme for the Ant-Man in the odd meter of seven which means seven beats per bar,” Beck explained. “I created a theme for The Wasp which was in the odd meter of five. Most songs and scores are written in the more traditional 4/4 or 3/4 meters. But, when more beats are added to create a complex meter, it brings a dynamic, rhythmic effect to the music which fits in with the multifaceted character of these two superheroes.”

Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and The Wasp – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, pressed for the first time on two 180 Gram Colored Vinyl, will retail for $35 starting this Wednesday, April 24 on MondoTees.com. See the full track list below.
