EVERYBODY WANTS SOME: Warner Bros. Records To Release Soundtrack for New Richard Linklater Film

everybody-wants-some-2016

Warner Bros. Records will release the soundtrack to the upcoming feature film Everybody Wants Some on April 8th The Paramount Pictures and Annapurna Pictures film is directed by Academy Award®-nominated director Richard Linklater (BoyhoodSchool of RockDazed and Confused) and will hit theatres beginning April 1st.

A “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused set in the world of 1980s college life, Everybody Wants Some is a comedy that follows a group of friends as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. Appropriately, the soundtrack features some of Linklater’s favorite songs from the ’80s, including hits from Van HalenThe KnackBlondie, and The Cars, among many others.

“The Everybody Wants Some soundtrack tries to capture the amazing diversity of what was on the table musically at that time,” Linklater says. “So many artists were at the top of their game, and it seemed like a lot of popular genres were viable. Metal and R&B were as big as ever, disco was still hanging in there (although it would be ‘dead’ within a year or so), and, thanks to the movie Urban Cowboy, country was suddenly cool in places it hadn’t been before. Even more exciting was the immediacy of punk and new wave, and the first examples of this thing you’d eventually know as hip-hop. Over the years some of this has been parodied and made to look ridiculous, but this movie is asking you to experience it as if for the first time — from those opening drum beats of ‘My Sharona’ to the utter newness of ‘Rapper’s Delight.’”

The Everybody Wants Some soundtrack is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon as of today. Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of Van Halen’s “Everybody Wants Some!!.”

The soundtrack will be released as a digital download, physical CD, and cassette, as well as on double LP vinyl, which will feature additional tracks. Please see below for the full track-listings.
