TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Green Book OST

If you’re keeping a scorecard for Oscars 2019, you no doubt know that Green Book is a heavy hitter this year with nominations for Best Picture, Best Lead Actor for Viggo Mortensen, Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali, Best Original Screenplay, Best in Film Editing—and its official soundtrack just surpassed 1 million streams globally. And for those of you thinking, “Hey, that’s a great achievement, but what about the vinyl soundtrack?” …we’ve got you covered.

The official soundtrack from the award-winning motion picture Green Book has surpassed 1 million streams globally, marking it the highest streamed jazz soundtrack released by Milan Records. The soundtrack, featuring an original score by composer Kris Bowers, has seen a steady increase in daily streams, from roughly 10,000 streams per day in January 2019 to now closer to 20,000 streams per day.

Milan Records says of the achievement, “It’s been a hugely rewarding process to work on the soundtrack album with Kris Bowers and his team, Manish Raval, Tom Wolfe, and Paul Katz. Kris’ score is remarkable and stands proudly as the work of a born virtuoso. It also has had no trouble connecting with music streaming audiences, contrary to conventional wisdom surrounding the marriage of jazz and music streaming. With more than 650,000 streams to date, Kris’s music is getting the attention it so rightfully deserves and is receiving by far the highest number of streams of any of our jazz-infused soundtrack albums. We look forward to seeing what Kris does next!”

“I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to work on this film and to learn about Dr. Donald Shirley and his brilliance through his music. I had an incredible time working with Mahershala and Pete to bring that music to life, and the cast’s subtle and beautiful performances made it such a joy to compose the score for,” Kris Bowers offers.

Milan Records’ soundtrack album for the comedy drama Green Book features the film’s original music composed by Kris Bowers (Dear White People, For the People, Of Monsters and Men). Also included are the songs from the movie by The Blue Jays, Timmy Shaw, The Blackwells, Jack’s Four, Bob Kelly & others, as well as the performances of The Don Shirley Trio as featured in the film.

The soundtrack is now available on all streaming platforms. The vinyl version will be released February 22. Green Book is co-written and directed by Peter Farrelly and stars Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini, Sebastian Maniscalco, Dimiter D. Marinov and P.J. Byrne. The movie tells the true story of the growing friendship between a nightclub bouncer who’s been hired to chauffeur a highly-educated African-American piano-playing prodigy through the Deep South on a concert tour.
