Get Schwifty: The ‘Rick And Morty’ Soundtrack Will Be Released In The Fall

first_imgRick and Morty has become a cultural phenomenon. Back in October, the Adult Swim cartoon created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon became the number 1 TV comedy for millennials with an average 2.5 million viewers. The nihilistic show—which subverts traditional televisions shows given its bleak point of view and absurdist, psychedelia-tinged plots—has accrued a huge, dedicated following.Inevitably, Rick and Morty‘s massive cultural popularity has crossed over into the music world. Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords voiced a sentient, singing fart on the show. Run The Jewels released a Rick and Morty-themed music video in March. The show’s now-synonymous eerie opening theme has been covered frequently, including by Broccoli Samurai and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. Even high-profile producer Deadmau5 made waves when he spent $15,000 on a jug of McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce—a move inspired by an episode where Rick goes back in time to re-taste the limited-edition condiment.Today, the show’s many fans can rejoice because, in the fall, Rick & Morty will be releasing its first official soundtrack. Slated for an initial September 28th release via Sub Pop, the soundtrack is curated by the show’s composer Ryan Elder. Along with more well-known songs from the show, the soundtrack will also feature two brand-new tracks from singer-songwriter Chad VanGaalen and clipping, both of which were inspired by the dark cartoon comedy.The show’s soundtrack will be released in multiple formats including standard CD, colored-vinyl double LP, and through major streaming services. An additional deluxe vinyl edition, which will come in a box with an etched plexiglass window and LED lights and include a custom poster, patch, sticker, and bonus 7″ single featuring a mix of the “screaming sun” from the show’s season 2 finale,will be available on November 23rd. Hilariously, the soundtrack will also be released on cassette (they’re not dead yet!) on November 23rd along with the deluxe vinyl set.You can pre-order the forthcoming Rick & Morty soundtrack here.
