Almost 20 years ago one of the biggest drama films of the century came to light. With the release of the Titanic came one of the best Original Soundtracks ever composed.
The Original Soundtrack of Titanic was an immense success, shot to the top of the charts in nearly two-dozen territories, selling over 30 million copies and making it one of the top 100 best-selling albums in the United States.
It is one of the best-selling soundtrack albums of all time, and the most popular primarily orchestral soundtrack ever.
Director James Cameron originally intended Enya to compose the music. After she politely declined, he approached James Horner. Horner composed the soundtrack having in mind Enya's style. He had tried 25 or 30 singers and, in the end, he chose Norwegian singer Sissel to perform the wordless vocals on the soundtrack.
Céline Dion, who was no stranger to movie songs in the 1990s, sang "My Heart Will Go On", the film's signature song written by James Horner and Will Jennings. At first, Cameron did not want a song sung over the film's ending credits, but Horner disagreed. Without telling Cameron he went ahead and wrote the song anyway, and recorded Dion singing it.
Cameron changed his mind when Horner presented the song to him. "My Heart Will Go On" became a worldwide smash hit, going to the top of the music charts around the world. Both "My Heart Will Go On" as well as the complete score ended up winning Academy, Golden Globe, Grammy, MTV, Satellite and several more awards.
Almost 20 years after its original release, Music On Vinyl and Sony Classical put their hands together and finally released the Original Soundtrack of The Titanic on vinyl for the first time ever!
We put a lot of effort and dedication in creating the album by using the highest quality audio master (96 KHZ/24 BIT) and high resolution stills and images.
After collecting the right materials, the production goes off to the pressing plant.
During the pressing process, multiple quality checks are planned. These quality checks are made to ensure the quality of both the record, as well as the looks of the artwork.
The front cover of the Titanic album is embossed with a unique special silver metallic layer on the title, which is specially created and printed for the vinyl issue.
The album includes the original newspaper of the day the Titanic sank printed on high quality paper material,
a 4-page booklet including stills from the film, a foreword by James Cameron and lyrics of "My Heart Will Go On",
and a poster in 600x900 big HD format.
The first pressing of the album will be on gold vinyl for a limited amount of 1.500 copies. Make sure you have your hands on it before it sells out!
