An expanded, remastered release of the soundtrack to the 1992 movie “Singles” will arrive May 19th to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary. The original soundtrack includes songs by Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Chris Cornell, Screaming Trees, Mudhoney and Mother Love Bone and is a favorite in the grunge scene.
“Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack — Deluxe Edition” will arrive as a two-disc or two-LP collection. It will include never-before-released songs from Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Chris Cornell and the Replacements’ Paul Westerberg. Also included is “Touch Me I’m Dick” by Matt Dillion’s fictional band in the film, Citizen Dick, featuring Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, and Jeff Ament. It marks the first commercial release of “Touch Me I’m Dick”.
“The album itself was always designed to be sort of an anti-soundtrack, more like a souvenir and a simple mix-tape of some of Seattle’s finest,” “Singles” director Cameron Crowe said in a statement. “It really is and was a tribute to those hard-working bands that welcomed me to their city with open arms, and the music so many still love so much.”
