Out now digitally: 'Lady Bird' soundtrack

Legacy Recordings has released Lady Bird - Soundtrack from the Motion Picture as a digital album today, with a physical CD edition available Feb. 2 and a 2LP 12" vinyl edition coming March 16, with Barnes & Noble offering a special 2LP 12" colored vinyl version of the album. Pre-order available here:

Lady Bird, written and directed by Greta Gerwig, premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in early September and was released theatrically in November. She disclosed last fall that she'd written personal letters to artists she had in mind for the film—including Dave Matthews and Alanis Morissette—to expressly ask for their blessings to use their songs in Lady Bird (which is
set in 2002).

The film—starring Saoirse Ronan in the title role and Laurie Metcalf as her mother—won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, while Saoirse Ronan took home the award for Best Actress, Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. The New York Film Critics Circle named Lady Bird 2017's Best Film and Ronan the year's Best Actress, while the National Board of Review placed Lady Bird in the year's Top 10 Films, named Gerwig Best Director, and named Metcalf Best Supporting Actress.
