The soundtrack to the Netflix Original series Narcos is coming to vinyl via Invada Records, FACT reports.
Set and filmed in Colombia, the 10-episode first series tells the story of notorious Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel. The soundtrack features classic cumbia (e.g. ‘Tabaco y Ron’by Rodolfo y su Tipica) and salsa (e.g. ‘Fruko y sus Tesos’ by El Preso), as well as instrumental cues by Brazilian composer Pedro Bromfman, who previously soundtracked Brazilian crime thriller Elite Squad. The 28-track release also includes the show’s theme song ‘Tuyo’, written by Brazilian singer-songwriter Rodrigo Amarante.
The double vinyl package will be available in two sleeve options and black-and-white vinyl. The edition drops this September to coincide with the show’s second season. Lakeshore Records is handling the soundtrack’s digital and CD release.
