Twin Peaks soundtrack on vinyl, reissued by Death Waltz Recording Company

“I’m glad that after 25 years, Death Waltz Recording Company has re-released the original soundtrack for Twin Peaks for a new audience to enjoy. This is my defining work as a composer and I’m happy it will get a fresh listen.”
—Angelo Badalamenti

Ever since it was first hinted by by Death Waltz Recording Company, record collectors have been yearning —often audibly— for the vinyl reissue of Angelo Badalamenti‘s original Twin Peaks soundtrack. Two years in the making, and 26 years after its original release in September 1990, the re-release is ready to hit the stores. Both online on August 10 at 12 PM (CST) via Mondotees, and in retail stores worldwide on September 9. One version, no limited variants. Select participating stores listed below will even hold a Twin Peaks coffee and pie event on Tuesday, September 6th, with a preview sale of the soundtrack.

UPDATE: The first pressing of the record is sold out online. Pick one up at your local record store in September, or pre-order for September delivery from Deep Discount, Amazon, Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, Amazon Japan, or Zavvi (UK and the rest of Europe).

Today, Welcome to Twin Peaks is excited and honored to finally reveal the full package and details in premiere!

Twin Peaks – Original Score By Angelo Badalamenti LP

Back in print for the first time in 25 years, the record now comes housed inside a 425gsm gatefold sleeve featuring lyrics and liner notes by composer Angelo Badalamenti. The cover image by Sam Smith comes approved by director David Lynch himself.

The whole affair is finished with a top loading obi strip and pressed on “Damn fine coffee” vinyl. Death Waltz went back to the Warner archives where Tal Miller cut brand new vinyl masters, and then worked with Rainbo to press the record on 180g vinyl for the best possible sound quality.

What's your response to this?


  1. Johnathon says:

    They also promised Fire Walk With Me. How long do we have to wait for that?

  2. Michelle says:

    Is this available to buy anywhere in the Los Angeles area?

  3. Yes! I already have the original print, but I’m absolutely getting this, just for the sake of the design.

  4. K.M. says:

    I’m really wary about this seeing as they’re having Rainbo press this. They pressed the newest Radiohead and quality was all over the place on it with a lot of noisy copies reported. Hope they do this justice and it doesn’t stink!

  5. Ricky says:

    Do your homework on this one team, Rainbo is one of the worst pressing plants in the business when it comes to vinyl of quality. 180 grams means nothing if it wasn’t pressed with care or handled and packaged with care; case in point Radiohead Moon shaped Pool as K.M. mentions.

    I guess we don’t have all that much of a choice.

  6. Richard Grauman says:

    When do pre-orders begin?

  7. orge says:

    why are people constantly bitching… if you want a nice copy of this as it was meant to be go spend the $$ on an original pressing if it is that damn important to you! perhaps you should have already owned this before vinyl became trendy.

    • Annie says:

      Perhaps the younger fans didn’t realize that the soundtrack had even been pressed on vinyl and are just now excited about it!
      -Signed, lifelong vinyl fan, newer TP fan.

    • Gruff says:

      That’s absolutely no excuse for a poor pressing, though. If something goes on sale surely we should be able to expect a certain quality? Nothing at allto do with trendiness.

  8. Will says:

    That is a slip jacket, definitely not an obi strip

    • Cory Q says:

      Maybe look before posting snarky comments? If you compare the third pic vs the first two, you can see that the “TWIN PEAKS Original Score By Angelo Badelamenti” is on a white OBI strip that is not in pics 1 or 2. You can even see the border of the obi strip if you look closely.

  9. Thomas G says:

    Such a shame this is on Death Waltz. All their stuff is way overpriced.

  10. Belle says:

    I need that vinyl !

  11. Matthew says:

    How to get this in The Netherlands?

    • Franklin says:

      Mondo send it to europe… It’s expensive (23 $) but it’s possible 😉 I’ll do it !

  12. Nightwing says:

    Looks wonderful. Though is there actually any point in pre ordering this ?

  13. Robin says:

    Says it’s already sold out. Either incorrect information, or the dummies only made like a hundred copies or something.

    To say I’m disappointed would prove an understatement. Pretty mad at them too, actually.

    • Avatar photo Twin Pie says:

      I’m pretty sure they will restock the site at some point, and there’s always the retail release on September 9, 2016.

  14. What Cheer says:

    please include our shop as a participating store for the cherry pie and coffee event – we’ve ordered copies and are getting psyched to brew up some coffee and make some pies for this. our shop is :

    What Cheer Records + Vintage
    180 Angell Street (Upstairs)
    Providence, RI 02906

  15. What Cheer says:

    please add our shop to list of participating stores. info above.

    • Avatar photo Twin Pie says:

      Done! Thanks for celebrating!

      • What Cheer says:

        thank you! can’t wait.

        one thing about this release, though – this post and others about the release say the retail price is $23 but that is almost the actual wholesale cost to stores (barely any markup at all, and that doesn’t even factor in shipping costs). the msrp from the major distributors is $35.98. as a store owner, i just want people to know that there’s no way the LPs can sell for just $23. buyers should know that that price was from initial direct mail order (now sold out) and that the actual store retail price has to be higher. they’ll also get free cherry pie and coffee!

  16. Anthony Anderson says:

    And now the first pressing is SOLD OUT! Pre-Orders being taken now for late October.

  17. Please include our store as a participating store for this release

  18. Jason Ferrell says:

    For what its worth, my copy sounds beautiful; smooth and lovely. So they got the sound quality right. And it IS an obi, or sort of version of an obi, but underneath is the spot lacquered title on the die-cut sleeve..

  19. Coop says:

    Mine was dented during shipping. 🙁

  20. Coop says:

    The Mondo shipping department in Austin Texas.

  21. Coop says:

    From the USPS.

  22. Wendi says:

    Nobody mentions the runout groove etchings on this re-released vinyl…but I’m assuming that since they are mass produced everyone has words that look hand-etched on their album?

    Also, I received mine from Mondo slightly damaged as well. Below the bottom die cut chevron is a bend/wrinkle in the cover.

  23. Coop says:

    That’s exactly where mine was damaged as well.

  24. Lusciousdough says:

    Sadly my copy has some nasty pops on the opening track and some more minor noise throughout. The music itself sounds gorgeous but pressing seems flawed.

  25. RnVss says:

    did anyone receive the vinyl from DEEP DISCOUNT? They don’t answer to my email for information of shipment. I’m a little worried

    • Avatar photo Twin Pie says:

      Have you tried their phone support? 800-264-5076

      • RnVss says:

        I can’t call because i’m from Italy.
        They answered to my email yesterday but they said me that the vinyl isn’t available. And it seems a little strange.
        However, thank you Twin Pie.

  26. RnVss says:

    In the site of “Deep Discount”, The vinyl is disappeared.
    Initially, it was showed in the site, now, if you will search the vinyl, you will not found anything.
    The problem is that i just paid the object (totally 40 dollars), i think that i will require the reimbursement, is that a bad idea?

  27. Nick says:

    Sorry but this is the worst pressed new record I have heard in years, all the copies in the shop have the same pressing fault between track one and track two, sounds like a scratch but every record has it in the same place and lots of random pops and clicks across the whole records. Sorry but this is going back for a refund, it’s a shame because some passages sound great

  28. Vipspleen says:

    I got lucky, Slightly warped but sounds beautiful.

    Only slight static, nothing compared to both copies of Radiohead.

  29. john smallberries says:

    Just received mine from Mondo, and it’s a flawed pressing:
    side two has a colorful patch of vinyl crossing two tracks
    that equals scratch/pop. The grooves look perfectly ok
    in the light, but when the needle moves over this bit of
    color, scrrrratchpop.

  30. john smallberries says:

    mondo’s replacing my scratchy pressing. yay!

  31. It is a matchless attire, comprised ?f ?igh quality real / fake leather ?ith internal viscose lining.
