John Powell - How To Train Your Dragon 2 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) 2LP
RELEASES ON THE 22/4/23 (RECORD STORE DAY)
How To Train Your Dragon 2 is the most successful, (621m Box office), of the 1.65 Billion trilogy of animated films, which also had an eight year run as a popular television program. The soundtrack was composed by John Powell, who has created the archetype for modern animation scoring, having created the music behind Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, most of Ice Age, Rio, The Lorax and many others.
This soundtrack has never had a standard vinyl release, much less this deluxe edition which will be presented across two LP's in a gatefold jacket and pressed on red mult-colour splatter vinyl, in keeping with the theme of the green multi-color splatter on the How To Train Your Dragon 1 LP release, which was also produced exclusively for RSD in 2021.
As with the first soundtrack, the theme song of the second film is done by Jonsi from the Icelandic band, Sigur Ros, and is unavailable anywhere else.
About this product: this is the Record Store Day '23 release on 2x red multi-colour splatter vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve. Limited pressing of 300 copies.
