SLEEVE NOTES:
“How to explain this movie in a nutshell? Well, Baby drives cars. But music drives Baby.
I started dreaming up ‘Baby Driver’ upon my first listen to ‘Bellbottoms’ by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion sometime in 1995. I had it on an audio cassette duped from my brother Oscar (sorry Jon) and as I played it over and over again, I began to imagine what was the perfect car chase fuelled by this rock and roll anthem.

I didn’t know for sure back in North London twenty-two years ago that my nascent idea would become a full on musical action movie released in cinemas all over the world.
But the very thought of this film has been a passion of mine for these last two decades and the fact that you now own the soundtrack album blows my mind.

Like Baby, music motivates me. In fact, I couldn’t start writing a single scene in this movie without having the right song to go with it. Even the first draft of the script had nearly all the songs written into it with the faint hope that we could actually use them. I had the six big action set pieces of ‘Bellbottoms’, ‘Neat Neat Neat’, ‘Tequila’, ‘Intermission’, ‘Hocus Pocus’ and ‘Brighton Rock’ all figured out, but when I started to write the scenes in between I would go digging through my record collection to find the perfect song before I wrote another word.

The killer tracks you find on this album are all favorites of mine. I hope like me (and Baby) this music moves you; it’s a mix of rock, soul, hip hop and, in some cases, the original rare grooves that you may know better from samples in other tracks.

I can’t rightly suggest that this album is full of songs to rob banks by because if you’ve seen the movie, you know that sooner or later you will have to face the music.
So instead, why not hit the road, head west and celebrate your freedom by blasting out Baby’s perfect score-for-a-score at maximum volume.

Drive safe,
Edgar Wright, 2017
