Vinyl New Release:
IT’S ALWAYS BLUE: SONGS FROM LEGION – [Order Here]
Music by Noah Hawley & Jeff Russo, Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Navid Negahban.
Some of the most memorable moments in the provocative second season of FX’s Legion are tied to its original soundtrack… Accompanying the visual design of Season 2 — which often leveraged a surreal and nightmarish aesthetic that seemed to escalate the unpredictable potential hinted at in the first — was a unique approach to its inclusion of cover songs – Leo Faierman, Screen Rant
The soundtrack includes a grim, highly evocative take on the 1985 Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers classic “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” which calls to mind Fragile-era Nine Inch Nails. You can listen to Hawley & Russo’s industrial spin on this classic rock staple – Austin Trunick, Under The Radar
Out today in stores and online is the highly-anticipated vinyl release of It’s Always Blue: Songs From Legion, the cover songs album from the FX Networks hit series! Previously, we anticipated the album arriving a week later, but sometimes, one of the David Haller universes swings your way.
The soundtrack teams up Series Showrunner Noah Hawley and Series Composer Jeff Russo who perform reimagined cover songs of classic hits such as “Behind Blue Eyes”, “Don’t Come Around Here No More”, and “Cornflake Girl” and more. Series stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller and Navid Negahban lend vocals to key songs in the album!
