Over The Garden Wall Digital Soundtrack Now Available To Download

Music composers The Blasting Company (Brandon Armstrong, Joshua Kaufman and Justin Rubenstein) and pop-culture collectables website Mondo has released a digital soundtrack for Cartoon Network’s first ever miniseries – Over The Garden Wall. The animated short series is known for its autumnal, turn-of-the-20th century theme and haunting atmosphere. Over The Garden Wall tells the tale of two young brothers named Wirt (voiced by Elijah Wood) and Greg (Collin Dean), who are trying to find a way home in a strange land called The Unknown, a land inhabited by strange creatures and colourful characters.

On their journey, Wirt and Greg have many musical moments, which you can now enjoy anytime with the digital release of the soundtrack. Previously, the soundtrack was released on vinyl for a limited time only. The digital soundtrack can now be purchased on iTunes and Bandcamp, or streamed on Spotify and Bandcamp. The album features 32 tracks, plus an extra 8 tracks which have been added to the digital release bringing the total to 40 tracks. The digital release was supposed to be released last September alongside the vinyl version, but due to circumstances outside of Mondo’s control, the release got delayed and it was eventually released on Friday 20th September 2017.

In terms of merchandise, Cartoon Network is still committed to the series, with a series of Domez collectable figurines and plush toys from Zag Toys now available and also The Art of Over The Garden Wall book which will be released on Tuesday 26th September. A special 2017 comic book special based on the miniseries published by BOOM! Comics was released on Wednesday 20th September.
