150gm vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve, includes digital download. After completing work on his Academy Award-winning 2018 film Roma, director Alfonso Cuarón was struck with the notion of having his favorite musical artists create songs inspired by the film. For some, Roma inspired new originals, including Billie Eilish's "When I Was Older," which incorporates various sound elements from the film's dense audio tracks. From shouts of student protests to barkings of Borras to the grinding of knives, artists drew inspiration from the sonic landscape meticulously crafted by Roma, imbuing their compositions with the day-to-day soundtrack of the streets of Mexico City. From hip-hop's El-P to R&B breakout Jessie Reyez and electronic producers Unkle and DJ Shadow, the remainder of the collection is a diverse tapestry that transcends genre, geography and age. From Sonido Gallo Negro and Quique Rangel's Mexico City roots to singer-songwriter Asaf Avidan's native Israel, and with artists belonging to five different generations, Music Inspired by the Film Roma is a contemporary touchstone that further reiterates the film's ability to connect with audiences of all ages across the globe.
