Guardians Of The Galaxy reminded us all that people really, really like soundtracks that double as mixtapes. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that a reissue of the multi-platinum soundtrack to Singles is coming up. According to Rolling Stone, the soundtrack to the ’90s Seattle love-note will be re-released on May 19 and feature a whole disc of rarities and unreleased tracks from PNW standouts like Chris Cornell, Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready.

The album is being re-released as a two CD set but analog lovers can pick up an LP of the original soundtrack that comes with a CD of all the bonus material. That bonus material includes previously unreleased demos from Mudhoney, live versions of songs by Alice In Chains and Soundgarden and the entirety of Chris Cornell’s Poncier EP. It will also include the full version of “Touch Me, I’m Dick,” the Mudhoney-ribbing song by the movie’s fictitious band Citizen Dick.

The liner notes of the album will include a track-by-track breakdown from Singles‘ director Cameron Crowe. He explained the rationale behind the soundtrack in a statement about the re-release.

“The album itself was always designed to be sort of an anti-soundtrack, more like a souvenir and a simple mix-tape of some of Seattle’s finest,” Crowe said of the reissue “It really is and was a tribute to those hard-working bands that welcomed me to their city with open arms, and the music so many still love so much. ”
