When the end comes you might want you family and friends nearby, perhaps enjoy a last meal of your favorite foods, and quietly prepare for the inevitable. Or you might just want to turn it up and let the good times roll one last time. If that latter scenario is more your style, the soundtrack to Edgar Wright‘s “The World’s End” should certainly do the trick. With the film gearing up to hit Comic-Con and then roll into U.S. theaters next month, we’ve got the exclusive artwork to the disc and more info on when it’s landing in a store new you.
For the film, Wright has brought together an array of ’90s anthems — artists such Blur, The Soup Dragons and Primal Scream feature among money others — that nicely reflect the youthful past of the five lads who get together for one more epic pub crawl in the movie. Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Eddie Marsan, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Rosamund Pike, the film is the finale in the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy and it certainly looks like everyone involved is making sure it’ll be a memorable sendoff.
ABKCO Records will release “The World’s End” Official Motion Picture Soundtrack in stores on August 20th, three days before the film opens in the U.S. on August 23rd. You can pre-order the disc right here and be sure to visit the film’s official website for info on the picture. And note: the U.S. version of the soundtrack will have different artwork and tracklisting from its U.K. counterpart, and we’ll have full details soon.
