TVD Radar: In the Heights (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) 2LP purple and gold vinyl in stores 6/11

VIA PRESS RELEASE | “96,000,” the second track from the Atlantic Records companion soundtrack to the Warner Bros. Pictures cinematic event of the summer, In the Heights arrives today, one week after the pre-order launch for In the Heights (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) and the release of the film’s title track.

The new song from the upcoming musical family film also arrives alongside Warner Bros. Pictures’ announcement of special advance screenings this Mother’s Day, May 9th. Tickets are available for free, while supplies last, in select theaters nationwide.

In the Heights, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jon M. Chu, is based on the TONY Award-winning stage musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes with score by Miranda and Alex Lacamoire & Bill Sherman, additional score by Ryan Shore. The film is scheduled to world premiere at the Tribeca Festival on June 9th.

In the Heights (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) was produced by Alex Lacamoire, Bill Sherman, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Greg Wells, with soundtrack production for Atlantic Records by GRAMMY Award winners Kevin Weaver (President, Atlantic Records West Coast), Pete Ganbarg (President A&R, Atlantic Records) and Craig Rosen (EVP A&R and Label Operations, Atlantic Records), along with Riggs Morales (SVP Urban A&R, Atlantic Records). For Warner Bros Pictures, soundtrack produced by Darren Higman and Steven Gizicki.

In the Heights (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) continues Lin-Manuel Miranda’s dominance as a Broadway phenomenon-turned-pop culture giant after the groundbreaking success of the 7X-Platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording) and the RIAA certified-gold Hamilton Mixtape, both released via Atlantic Records. Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording) peaked at #2 on the Billboard “200 Albums” Chart and has since spawned 7 certified-platinum and 15 certified-gold tracks, with over 6 billion streams worldwide to date.

ABOUT IN THE HEIGHTS | The creator of Hamilton and the director of Crazy Rich Asians invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big… In the Heights. Lights up on Washington Heights… The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life. In the Heights fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

In the Heights stars Anthony Ramos (A Star is Born, Broadway’s Hamilton), Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton, BlacKkKlansman), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (TV’s Vida), Olga Merediz (Broadway’s In the Heights), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s Rent), Gregory Diaz IV (Broadway’s Matilda the Musical), Stephanie Beatriz (TV’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Dascha Polanco (TV’s Orange is the New Black) and Jimmy Smits (the Star Wars films). Chu directed the film from a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes, based on the musical stage play, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and concept by Miranda. Miranda, Hudes, Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman and Mara Jacobs produced the film, with David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Behind the camera, Chu reunited with his Crazy Rich Asians production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein. He also collaborated with director of photography Alice Brooks (TV’s The Walking Dead) and costume designer Mitchell Travers (Hustlers, Eighth Grade). Original songs by Miranda. Alex Lacamoire (Fosse/Verdon, Broadway’s Hamilton) and Bill Sherman (Sesame Street, Broadway’s Hamilton) served as executive music producers. The choreography is by Christopher Scott, who previously teamed with Chu on the award-winning The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers. In the Heights was filmed in New York, primarily on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights. Warner Bros. Pictures presents a 5000 Broadway / Barrio Grrrl! / Likely Story / SGS Pictures Production, A Jon M. Chu Film, In the Heights.

Slated to open on June 11, 2021 in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It will be available on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release. In the Heights is rated PG-13 for some language and suggestive references.
