It’s 25 years since the release of Singles, the first movie to showcase the grunge music scene – and to celebrate, an expanded deluxe edition of the soundtrack is on the way.
Cameron Crowe’s iconic rom-com centred on a group of young folk from Seattle and starred Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott and Matt Dillon, who played the leader of the fictional group Citizen Dick.
The original Singles soundtrack featured 13 tracks from the likes of Mother Love Bone, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam. The expanded edition includes a bonus disc of rarities and previously unreleased songs by Mudhoney, Paul Westerberg and Chris Cornell, plus Citizen Dick’s Touch Me I’m Dick, which features Dillon backed by Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament.
Available as both as double CD and LP sets, Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is due out in May.
