Queen, Beck, the Beach Boys, Blur and Simon & Garfunkel highlight the all-star soundtrack for Edgar Wright’s upcoming action-comedy film, Baby Driver. The 30-song set is out June 23rd via Danger Mouse’s Columbia imprint, 30th Century Records. 

The album also features previously issued tracks from Sky Ferreira, Barry White, the Commodores, Focus, Dave Brubeck, Golden Earring, Young MC, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers, the Damned, Martha and the Vandellas and Sam & Dave, among others. It also includes one original song, Danger Mouse’s “Chase Me,” featuring Run the Jewels and Big Boi.

This soundtrack is more than a run-of-the-mill grab-bag of featured tracks – instead, the tunes are crucial to the actual story. Baby Driver follows a young, music-obsessed getaway driver named Baby (Ansel Elgort), who times bank robbery escapes to an eclectic group of songs. Wright meticulously syncs up the action sequences with sonic elements in the music.

Baby Driver, which hits theaters on June 28th, also stars Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx and Jon Hamm and features cameos from several musicians, including Sky Ferreira and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea.
