Starship Troopers (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack): Vinyl 2LP


Release date: 4 August, 2023

Starship Troopers is a cult-classic science fiction action film directed by Paul Verhoeven. Set in the 23rd century, the film follows the story of teenager Johnny Rico and his friends as they serve in the military under the Earth world government who are at an interstellar war with an alien species known as the Arachnids. This 2-LP deluxe edition marks the first-ever vinyl release for Basil Poledouris’ score for the film, and features newly commissioned album art evocative of 1960’s pulp science-fiction paperback books. The package comes with a fold-out poster of the cover art, and exclusive new liner notes from Director Paul Verhoeven and musician/daughter of composer Zoë Poledouris.
