A new vinyl of the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack will smell of peaches

Ella Braidwood June 14, 2018

A new vinyl of the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack will smell of peaches – a tribute to the film’s infamous scene when Elio masturbates using a peach.

The special edition vinyl will go on sale in August – the same month the fruit is traditionally harvested in.

The records themselves will also be peach-coloured.

Just 7,777 copies of the vinyl will be available, sold by Music On Vinyl, featuring three songs by Sufjan Stevens, alongside tracks by British post-punk band The Psychedelic Furs, and Italian composer Marco Armani.

The so-called “peach scene” in the coming-of-age movie Call Me By Your Name – based on the book of the same name by André Aciman – has gone down in queer legend.

In the scene, 17-year old Elio pleasures himself using the fruit. His lover, 24-year old graduate student Oliver, later discovers what Elio did and eats the peach.

The record package will the 180 gram vinyl, a poster, and two inner printed sleeves, which will be peach-scented.

In March, director of the film Luca Guadagnino revealed details of a potential Call Me By Your Name sequel.

Guadagnino revealed to USA Today that he was already working with writer André Aciman on a future story for Elio and Oliver.

He said: “I’m already conceiving the story with André Aciman, and it’s gonna happen five or six years afterwards.

“It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone.”

Guadagnino went on to say that he would have to finalise the script before it was known when and where filming would begin.

However, he was hopeful that the sequel would be more global than the original, hinting at some travelling for the pair.

“They’re gonna go around the world,” Guadagnino said.

Guadagnino had already revealed some of his plans for the sequel, though no concrete plans appear to have been announced.

Speaking with the Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, Guadagnino revealed that the sequel would tackle the AIDS crisis.

The first film was set in 1983 – shortly before the AIDS crisis began – with some critics complaining that it failed to reflect the frank reality of gay life in the 1980s.

Guadagnino has also previously hinted that Call Me By Your Name could be turned into a series of films.

In an interview with The Guardian in January, the director said: “These characters are so fantastic, and I want to know what happens to them.

“Maybe it’s not a question of sequel, it’s a question of chronicling everyone in this film.”
