Shortly after Netflix added the five Twilight films to its streaming service on Friday, all of them jumped onto its top 10 most-watched list. Some of the saga’s more discerning fans are curious to know if they can get the Twilight soundtrack on vinyl. So, are the soundtracks to Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and/or Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2 available on vinyl?

Is there a Twilight soundtrack vinyl LP?

The Twilight Original Motion Picture Soundtrack came out on Atlantic, Chop Shop Records and Summit Entertainment in a vinyl format on 4 November 2008.

That means the vinyl was available before the the first instalment even hit theatres on 21 November.

The track list to the original feature fits onto a single 12-inch LP record, with six songs on each side.

Among its 12 songs are Iron & Wine’s Flightless Bird, American Mouth and Leave Out All The Rest, by Linkin Park.

Is it still available?

The Twilight soundtrack is currently unavailable to purchase on vinyl via Amazon. Nor is it available from Walmart, which has stocked it in the past, or Barnes & Noble, which has previously stocked The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack on vinyl.

There are private sellers on digital marketplace Ebay (US) selling the LP. But traders have clocked the surge in demand. One has put a hefty price tag of $399 on a brand new, “rare” copy of the sought-after record. There are currently over 60 people watching it on the platform. 

Another is charging a rather more modest, yet still heavily inflated price of $249.99 – for the vinyl soundtrack to Twilight New Moon.

Are there other versions of the soundtrack available online?

A more affordable option is to purchase the soundtrack as performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, available from the UK for £31.73.

Alternatively, CDs of the soundtracks of all five instalments are widely available from online retailers. As a digital album, it is also downloadable or streamable on multiple platforms.

Otherwise, those ardently seeking out the Twilight soundtrack on vinyl – the Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack seems especially popular – will have to hunt for it in record shops. Many may be hoping that the surge in interest will result in another pressing. However, there has not, at time of writing, been an announcement to that effect.
