The Super Mario Bros soundtrack Vinyl release from iam8bitiam8bit

The Super Mario Bros Movie features a banging, nostalgic soundtrack – here’s everything we know about its release date on streaming and vinyl.

Mario music has always been gloriously infectious, whether it’s its 8-bit origins on the NES, the soundtrack of Rainbow Road in Mario Kart 64, tracks like ‘File Select’ and ‘Dire Dire Docks’ in Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy’s epic theme, or ‘Jump Up, Super Star!’ from Super Mario Odyssey.

The Super Mario Bros Movie is no different, coming equipped with an incredible score composed by Brian Tyler, packed with lots of nods to motifs and musical cues throughout the franchise.

In an interview, Tyler also spoke about how the score weaves in the music of Koji Kondo with new themes. “I would talk to [Kondo] back and forth: ‘Okay, what about this? What do you think if I did this for this?” because I wanted to incorporate things,” he told Screen Rant.

“Sometimes it’s invisible, [or] just like an Easter egg. The harp might be doing a line from the select screen on Mario Kart that only happens when you’re in the waiting room. There’s a part [in the movie] where Mario and Luigi are in a waiting room, and I thought it’d be cool [if] within the score that’s actually a mystery score, you hear the harp playing the waiting room music.

“I wanted to completely dive in and make [the film’s music] a feast for people that watch it 1,000 times, or Mario fans, but [ensure it] also works on a dramatic level.”
