In addition to the playlist, Tarantino recorded a special podcast to discuss the music of his old films and the upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. His ninth directorial's soundtrack, which has the works of Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Diamond and Deep Purple, spans over 31 songs, according to NME. It is available on all streaming platforms.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood follows a western star Rick Dalton (Leonardo Di Caprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) as they find it increasingly difficult to adjust to the evolving cinescape at the turn of the decade. His waning career is juxtaposed with an up-and-coming star Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), who moves next door to Dalton. Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Al Pacino, the late Luke Perry are also a part of the cast.

The film, which has already released in North America, raked in $41 million on its opening day, writes CNN. It is Tarantino's highest grossing film after Inglorious Basterds ($38 million).

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was initially scheduled to hit Indian theatres on 9 August, but has now clinched the coveted Independence day holiday release. It will be competing against Akshay Kumar's space drama Mission Mangal and John Abraham's action thriller Batla House.
