He's one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, and also pretty great at putting together soundtracks. We're talking about Mr. Wes Anderson, who will be celebrated with a very special soundtrack album of his own called I Saved Latin, which should be out next Spring via American Laundromat.

While the line-up is still suffering changes and additions, some artists have already been confirmed; among them are Matt Pond, Black Francis, Juliana Hatfield and Kristin Hersh (of Throwing Muses), who will be performing renditions of tracks from The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Darjeeling Limited, Rushmore, Fantastic Mr Fox, Moonrise Kingdom and Bottle Rocket.

The double CD will also be bundled with multiples extras such as a Khaki Scouts badge (from Moonrise Kingdom) and Max Fischer business card (from Rushmore).
