    Pretty much everything about the breakthrough of grunge music in the early ’90s can be boiled down to one movie: Cameron Crowe’s 1992 classic Singles. I mean, Pearl Jam was actually in the movie and Matt Dillion’s wardrobe consisted mainly of Jeff Amnet’s actual clothing. But nothing sums up the cultural significance better than the film’s soundtrack, which featured the likes of Chris Cornell, Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone, Mudhoney, and yes, Pearl Jam. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the OST, and it looks as if Sony Music will be celebrating with an expanded reissue.

    Pre-orders for a double-CD and triple-LP box set of the Singles Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition) have appeared on Amazon’s UK site. Both editions feature the original 13 tracks plus 18 new ones including demos, instrumentals, and “Touch Me I’m Dick” by Dillion’s fictional band in the film, Citizen Dick, which featured Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, and Jeff Ament. (It should be noted that the way the tracklist is listed out makes it seem as if the vinyl box set will actually feature the original OST on double-vinyl and include the 18 bonus tracks on CD.)

    There’s a February 17th release date listed, but it might be worth holding off to place your pre-order. A previous listing on Acoustic Sounds from May 2015 listed a August 2016 release date, and obviously that never occurred. Still, this new listing comes from Amazon, so it seems a bit more legit. Find the tracklist below.

    Update: The reissue has officially been announced for a May 19th release. Get more details here.
