Reznor, Trent & Atticus Ross: Watchmen : V.1 (music from the HBO series) LP
Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross release their score for the new HBO drama, Watchmen, across three 180g vinyl LP albums. Created in collaboration with the show's writers, each LP features the score from the Academy Award-winning composers plus artwork and packaging – exclusive to the vinyl release – that explores the culture of the show, revealing insights into the series' mythology. The albums will be released throughout the duration of the first season of Watchmen in 2019, with Volume 1 arriving at the beginning of November, Volume 2 at the end of November and Volume 3 in mid-December. Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own. While a film adaptation of the novel was made back in 2009, the TV adaption helmed by Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) offers a daring follow-up to the novel, set 30 years after Rorschach's manifesto hits the media and imagines an alternate American reality, where costume-avengers square off against white supremacists.
