MARC STREITENFIELD - Welcome to the Rileys

New release from Lakeshore Records - Music by Marc Streitenfeld

Lakeshore Records will release the Welcome to the Rileys -- Original Motion Picture Soundtrack available digitally and in stores on November 2, 2010.  Marc Streitenfeld ( American Gangster, Robin Hood composed the original music.  The soundtrack also features songs by Ying Yang Twins, Kitty Davis and Lewis, Odetta, Shiny Toy Guns, Joe Simon, and The Kills.

German-born composer Marc Streitenfeld is known for his work on numerous high profile Hollywood feature films.  Streitenfeld has composed the music for four consecutive Ridley Scott films, which include most recently Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, the BAFTA nominated score for  American Gangster, the thriller Body of Lies and the romantic comedy  A Good Year .  In 2008, Streitenfeld won the prestigious World Soundtrack Award’s “Discovery of the Year” at the Ghent International Film Festival.

For Welcome to the Rileys, Streitenfeld created a beautiful intimate score. This banjo-driven score ranges from a light and playful feel to a dark and intense, spooky tone. Streitenfeld played most of the instruments himself on the score.  'Jake Scott has a very sophisticated knowledge of music. It was a rewarding experience to work on the film,” says Streitenfeld.
  Welcome to the Rileys is a powerful drama about finding hope in the most unusual of places. Once a happily married and loving couple, Doug and Lois Riley (James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo) have grown apart since losing their teenage daughter eight years prior. Leaving his agoraphobic wife behind to go on a business trip to New Orleans, Doug meets a 17-year-old runaway (Kristen Stewart) and the two form a platonic bond. For Lois and Doug, what initially appears to be the final straw that will derail their relationship, turns out to be the inspiration they need to renew their marriage.

Looking to get away, Doug goes on a business trip to New Orleans. He meets Mallory (Kristen Stewart), a teenage runaway.  The opportunity to care and protect Mallory supplants the void Doug's marriage has left in his heart, and brings new meaning to his life. Doug decides to sell his business and stay in New Orleans to give Mallory the attention and help she can't bring herself to ask for. Lois overcomes her phobia and ventures to New Orleans to reclaim her marriage. What initially seems to be the final straw that will derail their marriage turns out to be the inspiration for Lois and Doug to renew their love for each other.

HANS ZIMMER related news: One new score release with Lorne Balfe and a new video interview

Source: Lakeshore Records

Hans Zimmer teams up again with Lorne Balfe

On November 2nd, Lakeshore records will be releasing the soundtrack to Megamind. The score is composed by Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe who previously worked together on Sherlock Holmes. This new Dreamworks Animimation film is starring the voices of Will Ferrell (Megamind) and Brad Pitt (Metro Man). Megamind is the most brilliant super-villain the world has ever known... and the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way -- Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as 'Metro Man,' until the day Megamind actually defeats him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, the fate of Metro City is threatened when a new villain arrives and chaos runs rampant, leaving everyone to wonder: Can the world's biggest 'mind' actually be the one to save the day?

ALEXANDRE DESPLAT - the special relationship (2010, CD)

Original Television Soundtrack

Music Composed by Alexandre Desplat

The third in screenwriter Peter Morgan’s trilogy on Tony Blair, following The Deal, which aired on HBO, and the Academy Award-nominated film The Queen, The Special Relationship stars Michael Sheen as Tony Blair and Dennis Quaid as Bill Clinton. 

In 1993, ambitious British politician Tony Blair arrives in Washington D.C. to meet with advisors who helped bring Bill Clinton into office.  At his meeting, Blair is given war room wisdom: “Listen to what the people are saying. It’s easier to change what the party stands for than what the people want.”  Three years later, Blair puts the advice to work, declaring “Je suis European” at a speech in Paris, committing himself to his fellow Continentals. 

When both Blair and Clinton are swept into office, Clinton shares with Blair his excitement over their “unique opportunity” to advance their center-left ideas and bring genuine change over the next few years.  As the two men continue their terms in office, world and personal events determine which man has the upper hand in the long-standing alliance.  The conflict in Northern Ireland, the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and differing strategies about the crisis in Kosovo all play a part in shifting their positions on the world stage, and their opinions of each other.  And when the 2000 election brings new leadership into the White House, it is up to Blair to decide how the relationship will carry on. 

Alexandre Desplat adds another extraordinary score to his long list of recent achievements (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, The Queen, Twilight: New Moon).

After numerous delays that were beyond our control, which resulted in pushing the album right off our release schedule, we are so happy to finally make this wonderful score available.

THE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP began airing on HBO on May 29.

Special LOST release: LOST: The Last Episodes (varese, 2010 CD)

LOST: The Last Episodes
Original Television Soundtrack

Music Composed by Michael Giacchino

LOST's final season contained just too much great music from Michael Giacchino for a single or even a double CD to suffice. It was clear at the recording session for the series finale that our treatment of this historic television saga demanded an unprecedented final soundtrack release. In total we have chronicled LOST's final season with not one or two or even three CDs full of music, but a full 4 discs, featuring five hours of music! Lost: The Last Episodes now joins our previously released Lost: The Final Season to conclude our presentation of music from LOST's final sixteen episodes.

CD 1 of LOST: The Last Episodes features music from The Candidate, Across The Sea and What They Died For. Disc 2 is devoted solely to the epic and emotional concluding episode, The End. And that brings our LOST soundtrack series to a whopping ten discs! Bravo to Michael Giacchino and congratulations to J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, Bryan Burk and the entire LOST team! And thank you to all the LOST fans who have been part of this epic journey since Varèse Sarabande's Season 1 album. We are thrilled to offer this very special release to bring LOST's musical story to a moving and poignant end.

LOST Season 6 was released on DVD and BluRay from ABC Home Video on August 24.
