    Warner and Parlophone are celebrating the 15th anniversary of Sofia Coppola’s directorial debut, The Virgin Suicides, by reissuing Air’s original soundtrack for the film. Available on vinyl, double CD, and in a limited edition super deluxe box set, the score is out June 16th along with reissues of Air’s early studio releases.

    The box set will include the album pressed on red vinyl plus a bonus picture disc featuring a previously unreleased live performance of the score recorded at LA’s American Legion Hall on January 22nd, 2000 and three recordings from a KCRW performance that same month. Also in the box will be the 2-CD version, a movie poster, a 16-page booklet featuring a new Air interview, a VIP badge from the LA show, and an exclusive red vinyl 7-inch featuring remixes and the song “Playground Love”. The live album will also be included as one of the discs in the 2-CD set, while two additional studio outtakes will be tacked onto the end of disc one.

    Despite heavy editing and the fact that nearly 80% of the tracks Air recorded for the film were abandoned in the final cut, the score has gone down as one the band’s finest efforts to date. In addition to this prized work, vinyl reissues of Air’s five earliest studio efforts will also be available on June 16th. These include their debut EP Premiers Symptômes (1997), Moon Safari (1998), 10,000 Hz Legend (2001), Talkie Walkie (2004), and Pocket Symphony (2007). Find the full tracklisting for the The Virgin Suicides remasters below.
