Singles is the original
album to the film
Singles, primarily focused on the ascendant
grunge scene of the early 1990s. It also features contributions from Minneapolis's
Paul Westerberg (his first solo material after the breakup of
The Replacements), Chicago's
The Smashing Pumpkins, and past Seattle rockers
Jimi Hendrix and
The Lovemongers (
Nancy Wilson of
Heart). It was released on June 30, 1992. The album has been certified two times platinum by the RIAA in the United States.
The soundtrack was reissued in a 2×CD and 2×LP edition on May 19, 2017, coincidentally one day following
Chris Cornell's death, although the release date had been announced in January.
 The reissued soundtrack features a new mastering and a bonus disc of previously unreleased material, including previously rare Chris Cornell recordings. The reissue includes 18 bonus tracks in addition to the original 13-song soundtrack, and also new liner notes and track-by-track descriptions by
Cameron Crowe, demos, instrumentals, and live recordings from the likes of Paul Westerberg,
Alice in Chains and
Mudhoney. Also included is “Touch Me I’m Dick” by
Matt Dillon’s fictional band in the film, Citizen Dick, featuring
Stone Gossard and
Jeff Ament. It marks the first commercial release of “Touch Me I’m Dick” as part of the soundtrack.
