Sony Music will release the official soundtrack album for the drama Blinded by the Light. The album features the songs from the movie by Bruce Springsteen. Also included are two tracks from the film’s original score composed by Academy Award winner A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), as well as songs by Pet Shop Boys, a-ha & more. The soundtrack will be released digitally and physically on August 9, 2019 and is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Blinded by the Light is directed by Gurinder Chadha and stars Viveik Kalra, Hayley Atwell, Rob Brydon, Kulvinder Ghir, Nell Williams, Dean-Charles Chapman and Aaron Phagura. The movie is set to the music and lyrics of Springsteen’s timeless songs and tells the story of a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987 who writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. When a classmate introduces him to the music of “the Boss,” he sees parallels to his working-class life in Springsteen’s powerful lyrics. The drama premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and will be released in theaters nationwide on August 14 by Warner Bros. Pictures/New Line Cinema.

    I’d like to see an album including other music from the film; Flock of Seagulls, Pet Shop Boys, etc. They were part of the soundtrack too.
