Spike Lee’s pop-political crowd-pleaser BlacKkKlansman has been nominated for six Academy Awards this year, including a first-time Best Director nomination for Lee and a first Oscar nomination, period, for his longtime composer Terence Blanchard.

Along with his work as a jazz trumpeter and bandleader, Blanchard has written the score for every one of Lee’s movie since 1991's Jungle Fever. And while he’s been awarded five Grammys for his jazz recordings, this year he picked up his first for a Spike Lee joint, a Best Instrumental Composition award for “Blut Und Boden (Blood And Soil).” Of the score, Blanchard says, “In BlacKkKlansman it all became real to me. You feel the level of intolerance that exists for people who ignore other people’s pain. Musically, I can’t ignore that. I can’t add to that intolerance. Instead I have to help people heal from it.”

In honor of these achievements—and just the general coolness of Lee, Blanchard, and the movie itself—today Waxwork Records is releasing the BlacKkKlansman soundtrack on 180-gram vinyl, with what a press release describes as “‘70s-inspired design work by Aesthetic Apparatus, a heavyweight printed insert, old style tip-on gatefold jackets and red & black smoke colored vinyl.”
