A 74-track collection of music from John Hughes films is arriving in November – with the support of the Hughes family too.
There’s never been, apparently, an official compilation album release of music from the films of the late, great John Hughes. For a filmmaker to whom music was so important, that’s something of a surprise. It’s also something that’s being rectified later this year.
A new 74 track release – arriving on CD and vinyl – is heading to stores this November, and it’ll bring together tunes from Hughes films spanning 1983 to 1989. That includes music from Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Some Kind Of Wonderful, She’s Having A Baby, The Great Outdoors and Uncle Buck, and Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
Demon/Edsel is releasing the set, and here in the UK it has a release date of Friday 11th November. The company has worked with the Hughes family on the release, as well as Tarquin Gotch, his music supervisor.
We’ll leave you with the full boxart…
