Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and more will appear on the ‘Singles’ soundtrack

Hey, ‘90s grunge fans, this is for you. An expanded, remastered release of the soundtrack to the 1992 movie “Singles” will arrive May 19 to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary. The soundtrack for the original album includes songs by Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Chris Cornell, Screaming Trees, Mudhoney and Mother Love Bone and is a favorite in the grunge scene.

The soundtrack also features the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “May This Be Love” and a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Battle of Evermore” by the Lovemongers.

“Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack — Deluxe Edition” will arrive a two-disc and two-LP collection. It will also include never-before-released songs from Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Chris Cornell and the Replacements’ Paul Westerberg.

“The album itself was always designed to be sort of an anti-soundtrack, more like a souvenir and a simple mix-tape of some of Seattle’s finest,” “Singles” director Cameron Crowe said in a statement. “It really is and was a tribute to those hard-working bands that welcomed me to their city with open arms, and the music so many still love so much.”
