It looks like Quentin Tarantino’s Django  soundtrack is going to be “off da chain.”  No, seriously!

The cover art and tracklist for the new film has been revealed and features an eclectic mix of Hip Hop, R&B/Soul and Jazz.  Expect musical contributions from Rick Ross, John Legend, Tupac, James Brown, Anthony Hamilton and Pat Metheny.  Even the film’s star Jamie Foxx will team up with Ross on the track “100 Black Coffins.”

The film’s director Quentin Tarantino praises the artists for their efforts and says many of the songs come from his personal vinyl collection.

“I want to thank all the artists who contributed original songs (a first for me) to the picture. Most of these contributions came out of the artists’ own inspiration and their illustration of the film’s soul is invaluable. In addition to the new original songs I am also using a lot of older recordings on the soundtrack – many of which came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up versions of these recordings from the 60’s and 70’s, I wanted to use the vinyl I’ve been listening to for years – complete with all the pops and cracks. I even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people’s experience to be the same as mine when they hear this soundtrack for the first time.”
