Today in Things-You-Don’t-Really-Need-But-Suddenly-Want is the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack on peach-coloured and scented vinyls. For the love of peaches, this is glorious.
Music on Vinyl are the folks behind the project and will only be releasing 7,777 individually numbered copies of the limited edition 2 x record package and only during Peach Harvest season. That’s from August 3, 2018 if you don’t know the Peach Harvest season off by heart. True to CMBYN aesthetics, this vinyl is sounding absolutely gorgeous and unfortunately pricey although you do have two months to get saving.
The entire package comes with a poster and an insert. The two vinyls also rest in two exclusively printed innersleeves.
The humble peach pops up a lot in the award-winning sensual flick about young love and heartbreak but there’s one scene in particular that we’re all thinking of. Now, if you’ve clicked on this juice then I’m going to assume you’ve watched the film and are in the know of the ~ peach scene ~ where lovely Elio played by Timothée Chalamet does it dirty with a peach.
With this scene in mind, the peach-scented vinyls complete with 2018 Academy Awards Nominated Sufijan Steven’s Mystery of Love sounds like an absolute musical snack.
The records also feature Steven’s Visions of Gideon and Futile Devices – three songs in total that’ll whisk you off to summer. Other artists on the vinyl include Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bandolero, and Marco Armani.
Not going to lie, this sounds like an excellent Christmas, birthday, anniversary, or Treat Yourself present… to forever remind yourselves of the purity of Elio and Oliver’s (Armie Hammer) love.
No word yet on the official cost but again, assume it’ll be pricey. You can find out more about the vinyl package HERE.
As for the incredible sequel to Call Me By Your Name, director Luca Guadagnino has a plan to make the second film about the last 20 pages of the original book by André Aciman chronicling the later years of Elio and Oliver’s lives. In the epilogue, Elio visits a now-married Oliver in America 15 years after their summer romance. Another five years pass and Oliver returns to Italy after learning Elio’s father died.
