Guardians Of The Galaxy Soundtrack Set For Cassette Release

mix1.jpg

Guardians, it's time to dust off the four track. Dig out the old car stereo. Raid the charity shop if you have to - just get your hands on a tape player. Disney are re-releasing the soundtrack to the biggest film of the year, and it's coming out on cassette. 

Yes, its a defunct, obsolete medium that does nothing to improve audio quality when compared to the likes of vinyl and modern MP3 - Disney hasn't released a cassette since 2003 -  but fans of the Marvel adaptation Guardians of the Galaxy will understand the appeal of owning the film's mix tape soundtrack on an actual mix tape. There's something "correct" in having to listen to the tracks in the order the creator intended, reading the (faux) handwritten label to navigate it and flipping it over when your reach the end of side A.

There's no word on how many cassette copies Disney will be releasing on 17 November (ahead of the US' Record Store Day/Black Friday), but anyone fortunate enough to pick up this soundtrack-stroke-prop will also receive a digital copy of the album. To really make the most of the release, we suggest listening to it on a Walkman while dancing around some sort of abandoned cave network.
