Are you tired of people quoting Kenny fucking Powers all the time because they can’t stop watching Eastbound & Down? Well, get used to it. Fat Possum is releasing a two-disc soundtrack compiling some of the best music used on the show, so now you can blast the music and feel even more like Powers. Not only that, but the soundtrack will feature “exclusive foul dialogue,” which sounds like reason enough to buy the thing. It’s due out April 24 and you can pre-order it here.
Peep the two quotes about the soundtrack from Powers himself and his close pal, Stevie Janowski.
“When my ass was 19 years old, I changed the face of professional baseball. Everyone wanted a piece of my s#*t. Just a man with a mind for victory and an arm like a f@^%*ing cannon. But sometimes when you bring the thunder, you get lost in the storm.”– Kenny Powers
“Each track is hand-picked by The Man himself. That’s right. This is the music that Kenny Powers rocks out to when he’s getting ready in the morning. This is the music Kenny Powers listens to in the late hours, when the night terrors come and we are all children again.” – Stevie Janowski
