The Velvet Underground
On October 15, The Velvet Underground: A Documentary Film by Todd Haynes will be released in theaters and to the Apple TV+ streaming service. The same day, Republic Records/UMe will issue the film's soundtrack on 2-CD and digital formats. The movie secured the participation of surviving bandmates John Cale and Maureen "Mo" Tucker in chronicling the story of the groundbreaking group formed by Cale, Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison, and Angus MacLise (replaced in 1965 by Tucker). Upon its July premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, the documentary was met with acclaim and Oscar buzz. The album, offering 16 tracks by the Velvets and others, has been curated by Haynes and music supervisor Randall Poster.
