AMERICAN HUSTLE Soundtrack Limited Edition Vinyl Announced for Record Store Day (Nov 28)

Madison Gate Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, are releasing American Hustle - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, a collection of music from the critically-acclaimed box office hit with ten Oscar-nominations, in a two 12" LP gatefold blue and red colored 150 gram vinyl edition featuring six songs from the movie not included on the CD version. The 12 Vinyl will be available exclusively at independent retailers, as part of Record Store Days annual Black Friday event on November 28th, 2014.

American Hustle - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack premieres "Stream Of Stars," a previously-unreleased song from the legendary Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra, Traveling Wilburys) alongside ELO's "Long Black Road," an ultra-rare track previously available only on the Japanese release of Zoom, ELO's final studio album. The soundtrack album showcases an array of evocative 70s classics--including Wings' "Live And Let Die," Donna Summer's "I Feel Love," Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", the Bee Gees' How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" and more--while introducing provocative new tracks like Lebanese-American singer Mayssa Karaa's Arabic cover rendition of Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit," produced by multiple Grammy nominee Mark Batson (Eminem, Alicia Keys, Dave Matthews Band).  Susan Jacobs served as Music Supervisor for the film's soundtrack.

The new 12" 2LP gatefold vinyl release of the album features six songs used in the film, which were not included on the CD.  The exciting new additions to the American Hustle - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album are songs by Steely Dan ("Dirty Work"), The Temptations (Papa Was A Rollin Stone), Todd Rundgren ("I Saw The Light"), David Bowie ("The Jean Genie"), Frank Sinatra ("The Coffee Song [They've Got An Awful Lot Of Coffee In Brazil]") and Ella Fitzgerald ("It's De-Lovely").

Director David O. Russell meticulously supervised the creation of this exclusive vinyl edition of the soundtrack, supplying hand-written excerpts from the scrip, unique imagery from the film and artwork to enhance the look and feel of the albums gatefold and sleeve.
