Known to some as La French, the epic crime drama The Connection is the critically acclaimed and stylish '70s-period crime thriller inspired by true events. We're absolutely thrilled to be releasing this absolute beast of a soundtrack; the ultimate cool compilation spanning four decades and featuring classic songs by The Velvet Underground, Blondie, Townes Van Zandt... it's hard to pick out highlights as there genuinely isn't a bad track on here. The Max Richter / Dinah Washington track alone - an incredible mix of Washington's vocals from 'This Bitter Earth' and Richter's incredible composition 'On The Nature of Daylight' - is one of the best things you'll hear this year. Lykke Li contributes 'Jerome,' a fantastic '60s tinged pop song that sounds like a lost Phil Spector composition. On top of all that throw in a selection of incredible French pop and you have one of the best soundtracks/comps of 2016.
