Black Francis, Telekinesis, More to be Featured on Wes Anderson Tribute Album

Because you can never have too much Wes Anderson in your life, American Laundromat Records will pay homage to the beloved director next year by releasing a tribute album featuring covers of songs from his past films.

According to American Laundromat, the double-album, I Saved Latin!, will feature “today’s best artists covering songs from Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, and more…”

In addition to the album, the label is also selling limited-edition Wes Anderson merch with every pre-order purchase. Customers can choose from a number of items including a limited-edition seven-inch single, Rushmore lapel pens, Max Fischer business cards, Team Zissou patches and knit beanies and several other Anderson-themed items.

Anderson is known for putting together exceptional soundtracks for his movies that fans have begun look forward to almost as much as the movie itself. The tribute album will most likely come sometime before the release of Anderson’s latest film The Grand Budapest Hotel (starring Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and more), out March 7, 2014.
