Beefed-up ‘Singles’ soundtrack on the way May 19

Filmmaker Cameron Crowe said in a press release this week that the stellar soundtrack to his 1992 movie “Singles” was a tribute to the hard-working bands that welcomed him, with open arms, into Seattle to get his camera rolling. The music is still loved by many fans, he added.

Epic Soundtrax and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will celebrate the 25th anniversary of "Singles" with the release of a newly expanded and remastered edition of the soundtrack on May 19.

"The album itself was always designed to be sort of an anti-soundtrack, more like a souvenir and a simple mix-tape of some of Seattle's finest," said Crowe in the release. “Anyway, here we are now revisiting 'Singles,' the film, as well as the soundtrack you hold in your hands, expanded with a special tip of the hat to the fans of the original release.  Included are unreleased and raw elements that helped shape the experience of making the movie back in 1991. Hope you enjoy the trip back as much as I did – Viva Seattle!"
