Waxwork Records is proud to present BlacKkKlansman original motion picture soundtrack; scored by Academy Award nominated composer Terence Blanchard.
From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
Produced by the team behind the Academy Award winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman has received praise and accolades from critics and fans and is nominated for six Academy Awards including ‘Best Film’, ‘Best Director’, and ‘Best Original Score’. Blanchard also recently won his sixth Grammy Award for ‘Best Instrumental Composition’ for the track Blut Und Boden (Blood and Soil).
With Blanchard’s current band The E-Collective featured on the score to BlacKkKlansman, as well as a 96-piece orchestra, the composer delivers “a soaring, seething, luxuriant score,” comments The New York Times. In Vice Magazine, Blanchard elaborates:
“In BlacKkKlansman it all became real to me. You feel the level of intolerance that exists for people who ignore other people’s pain. Musically, I can’t ignore that. I can’t add to that intolerance. Instead I have to help people heal from it.”
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the score as a deluxe vinyl release featuring the complete film music by Blanchard pressed to 180-gram vinyl. The deluxe packaging details include 1970s inspired design work by Aesthetic Apparatus, a heavyweight printed insert, old style tip-on gatefold jackets and “Blood & Soil” colored vinyl.
