There was once a time when getting your hands on the now classic score for CANDYMAN by Philip Glass seems like quite a chore. But thankfully, the fine folks over at One Way Static released it to much critical and fan acclaim earlier this year. They’re aiming to please again as they’ve just issued a press release and opened up pre-orders for the sequel CANDYMAN 2: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH and it’s score, once again by Philip Glass!
The album will be ships January 31st, 2016, but pre-orders are now under way. One Way Static is handling UK orders, while Light In The Attic has got American consumers covered. You can hear samples of the score over on the official One Way Static Soundcloud page, although we’ll leave you with one below and the full press release!
Following up on our last year’s release for Candyman (1992) One Way Static Records is now proud to announce the release of Mr. Glass’ iconic motion picture soundtrack for Clive Barker’s 1995 CANDYMAN II (Farewell to the Flesh) on vinyl and cassette.
Clive Barker who wrote the story for Candyman is a multi talented artist, painter, director & producer. The extent of his work is endless. Spawning the likes of Nightbreed, Hellraiser, Lord Of Illusions and the Books Of Blood just to name a few.
