Call us crazy, but it seems like Wes Anderson has been getting a fair amount of special attention lately. In the past two months, there’s been a new book released chronicling his career in movies, there’s this short film he made with Jason Schwartzmann, his animated film “Fantastic Mr. Fox” is getting a Criterion Collection release, SNL recently did a parody of his films, and of course, his next film “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is just on the horizon (trailer here). If you are a fan of Wes Anderson, what more could you possibly want? Maybe a Wes Anderson tribute CD? Would you want that as well? No? Well, you’re gonna get it anyway…

Call us crazy, but it seems like Wes Anderson has been getting a fair amount of special attention lately. In the past two months, there’s been a new book released chronicling his career in movies, there’s this short film he made with Jason Schwartzmann, his animated film “Fantastic Mr. Fox” is getting a Criterion Collection release, SNL recently did a parody of his films, and of course, his next film “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is just on the horizon (trailer here). If you are a fan of Wes Anderson, what more could you possibly want? Maybe a Wes Anderson tribute CD? Would you want that as well? No? Well, you’re gonna get it anyway…

Entitled “I Saved Latin!,” the 2-CD tribute to Wes Anderson is due to come out next spring thanks to American Laundromat Records. The album features many cover songs that were prominently featured in Anderson’s first six films. Covers from artists such as the PixiesBlack Francis, Mike Watt & the Secondmen, Kristin Hersh, Telekinesis, Juliana Hatfield, Matt Pond, and many more. 

If that’s not enough for you, the label’s including a bunch of cool memorabilia, like a Team Zissou beanie, a Khaki Scouts badge from Moonrise Kingdom, a Max Fischer business card, a limited 7”, and three t-shirts. That’s right, three! You can view the tracklisting below in alphabetical order. You can also preorder the album right now at the label’s website. If you buy the album, the best way to open it is in a precisely-framed overhead shot. [Pitchfork]
