Sparks Annette: Cannes Ed.: Selections from the OSS 180g Colored Vinyl LP
Annette is the acclaimed new film from Leos Carax. Based on an original story and music by Ron and Russell Mael, the brothers behind the flamboyant band Sparks, Annette began life as an (unreleased) album but was transformed into a musical after they met Carax.
Having successfully maintained a five-decade-long career as one of the world's most innovative and creative bands, it comes as no surprise that their collaboration with the visionary French director has resulted in a unique piece of film-making.
The original soundtrack to Annette, with lyrics co-written by Sparks and Leos Carax and music composed and performed by Sparks, features vocals from the stars of the film: Adam Driver (Henry), Marion Cotillard (Ann) and Simon Helberg (The Conductor). Produced by Sparks and Marius de Vries, music director of La La Land and Moulin Rouge!
The Cannes edition of the soundtrack album is available here as a 15-track LP on colored 180g vinyl. Presented in a gatefold sleeve, the LP also includes an exclusive poster featuring an alternative illustration supervised by Carax.
About Annette: Present-day Los Angeles. Henry is an outspoken stand-up comedian, Ann a world-famous singer.
They're a happy celebrity couple, living life in the glare of the spotlight, but their world is turned upside-down by the birth of their first child, Annette, a mysterious little girl with an exceptional destiny.
