To mark the launch of Quentin Tarantino’s new film The Hateful Eight and its thrilling new score from Ennio Morricone, both artists met for a special event at Abbey Road Studios.
Tarantino and actors Kurt Russell and Walton Goggins watched as Morricone conducted the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in a live recording of music from The Hateful Eight, cut to vinyl. As a gift to fans, those who pre-order the album will be given the chance to receive one of these hand-stamped, direct-to-vinyl editions through www.thehatefuleightsoundtrack.com (while supplies last).
While they were at Abbey Road, Morricone, Tarantino, Russell, Goggins and the orchestra signed the famous wall outside Abbey Road, which had been covered in The Hateful Eight artwork.
Just hours later, Morricone’s score for The Hateful Eight was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Original Score category.
