Lounge is a compilation album by Italian composer and conductor Ennio Morricone, released in September 2020 via Music On Vinyl.

Lounge is the third in a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone's greatest soundtrack music. Each collection centres on a different movie genre, together they allow the listener to rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie composer of all time. The Maestro.

This collection was announced before Ennio Morricone passed away on 6 July 2020. Music On Vinyl will continue to release the series to honour this great composer.

The term Lounge Music is not one that Ennio Morricone would have heard at the time he was composing these pieces for the movies that they enhanced, but it is one has been retrospectively applied to a certain type of music, and it is a style that Morricone has contributed a great deal towards.

Lounge refers to a type of easy listening music that began to be popular in the 1950s and developed right through the 1960s and into the 1970s. This was sophisticated music for an adult audience. Lounge music combined its American influences with music that was popular outside the USA such as Latin, Hawaiian, Polynesian, French, and many others. This was an era that was inspired by new inventions. Lounge mimicked the space-age sound effects of the time and the advent of stereophonic technology allowed spatial audio techniques to be used to full effect.

This collection is not about a specific genre of music for film, it is a celebration of Lounge style pieces by Morricone that are capable of evoking in the listener thoughts of easy living, sophistication, romantic moods, and the excitement of a 1950s cocktail lounge or a 1960s nightclub.

This album contains a selection of defining Morricone songs, featured in classic movies and series “Veruschka”, “Slalom”, “Alibi”, “Violent City”, “Machine Gun McCain”, and many more

Starting 70 years ago as an arranger for the piece Mamma Bianca, Ennio Morricone is the emperor of scores and soundtracks. Morricone has always been a huge influence for the likes of Hans Zimmer, Danger Mouse, Muse, Metallica and many more musicians. He was one of the most successful composers of all-time, selling over 70 million records and winning dozens of awards.

This double album is a limited edition of 3000 individually numbered copies on 180 gram solid orange coloured audiophile vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with velvet spot varnish, a 4 page insert (with liner notes written by Claudio Fuiano) and PVC protective sleeve, pressed in Europe via Music On Vinyl.
