Juno Tops Charts, Vinyl Edition in Feb
The Junoverse expands next month as a limited-edition orange vinyl version of the Juno soundtrack arrives on February 18 (suggested retail price: $13.98). February also brings a Juno ringtone, Ellen Page and costar Michael Cera's cover of The Moldy Peaches' "Anyone Else But You," available from all major carriers. The charming duet, which closes the film, has also been added as a video on MTV.
The Juno soundtrack was initially rolled out to digital retailers in December as the film was opening in select cities. Juno has steadily gained momentum in the marketplace thanks to strong word of mouth -- and an unusual degree of synergy between the movie and its soundtrack. The film's young star, Ellen Page, suggested using the music of The Moldy Peaches, and the 19-track Juno soundtrack includes eight songs featuring that band's Kimya Dawson. The album debuted on the Billboard Top 10 -- largely on the strength of digital sales. - eCard
