What came first? The music or the misery? Mondo and Hollywood Records are excited to announce the vinyl soundtrack to the HULU Original Series HIGH FIDELITY, premiering this Valentine’s Day. The soundtrack is available today at MondoShop.com.
Based on the 1995 Nick Hornby novel and film of the same name, the all new 10-episode series reimagines the story of the music obsessive, perpetually heartbroken record store owner Rob Brooks (Zoe Kravitz) in 2020 Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
Naturally, the show has stellar music and Mondo is proud to present the soundtrack to the series on vinyl… as Rob would’ve wanted it. Featuring classic tracks by the likes of Ann Peebles, Darondo, William Onyeabor, Blondie, as well as several original songs and covers from the series itself.
“If you collect vinyl, I have to assume that either the film or the novel HIGH FIDELITY is on one of your top 5 desert island lists… But if it’s not, or it’s a cultural blindspot, there’s no better way to get acquainted than this all new series. In short, it’s a story of music obsessives, heartbreak and answering the eternal question: do we listen to pop music because we’re sad? or are we sad because we listen to pop music? It’s funny, it’s poignant, and it’s specific. Most importantly, it has great music, and we’re proud to present a curated selection from the series on vinyl, the show’s intended format,” said Mondo Music Creative Director Mo Shafeek.
