(July 15, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) – Varèse Sarabande is excited to announce the forthcoming vinyl release of the Original Motion Picture Score for The Crow: Deluxe Edition composed by Graeme Revell. Fans of the cult classic can pre-order the special vinyl edition today, July 15, ahead of its October 1 release. The bespoke package consists of a glossy wide-spine embossed jacket featuring original artwork, 2 black vinyl records housed in full-color inner sleeves with movie stills, new notes and interviews and a fold-out 16x24 movie poster. An exclusive version pressed on marbleized black, gray and white vinyl is limited to 500 copies and available only on the Varèse Sarabande website.

The Crow (1994) became famous before it was even released, due to the tragic death of star Brandon Lee in an on-set accident. Alex Proyas’ supernatural revenge thriller, based on a comic book, was met with critical and fan acclaim. It became a box-office hit and tribute to its fallen star, leading to a franchise of sequels and a television series.

The Crow features a masterful score by Graeme Revell (Dead Calm, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle). With a background in what is typically called “world music,” Revell radically reinvented the grammar of film scoring by incorporating the authentic sonorities of non-Western cultures far more extensively and adroitly than had ever been attempted.

Under Revell’s expert hand, the Crow score is a unique mélange of synthesized, industrial, vocal, non-Western and Western elements—with everything from tribal drumming to rock guitars, children’s choir, blues riffs and bird samples, to a 50-piece string orchestra. It is dramatically impeccable, sonically inspired and beautifully produced.

“The Crow established a style that has been mimicked countless times. My use of voice as lead instrument was highly unusual at the time. Now it is extremely common. The crossover between music and sound effects has become ubiquitous. No one in the production saw the relevance of chamber strings to the Crow story but I persevered and recorded them anyway—in 3/4 time for good measure! Time has proven such themes to be the emotional core of similar movies, even when the bulk of the plot is action oriented. In The Crow, heroism took no pleasure in retribution. Sadness always remained.” – Graeme Revell
