Walt Disney Records Presents Born In China Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features Music By Composer Barnaby Taylor And Original Song “Everything Everything” By American Authors

Walt Disney Records Presents Born In China Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features Music By Composer Barnaby Taylor And Original Song "Everything Everything" By American Authors

Walt Disney Records Presents Born In China Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features Music By Composer Barnaby Taylor And Original Song “Everything Everything” By American Authors

Walt Disney Records is set to release the digital soundtrack to Disneynature’s new film Born in China on April 21, 2017—the same day the film opens in theaters nationwide.  The album features original score composed by Emmy Award®-winning film and television composer, Barnaby Taylor, along with the original track “Everything Everything” performed by Island Records recording artist American Authors, who wrote the song after seeing—and being deeply inspired by—the film.  The music video and single are available today.  The video can be seen HERE. The single is available at digital retailers disneymusic.co/AAuthorsEverything and streaming services disneymusic.co/AAuthorsEverythingWS.

The story of “Born in China“—fun but emotional, intimate yet vast, and wild while heartfelt—called for a score that evoked the majesty of China’s natural world. Composer Barnaby Taylor is behind the Emmy®-winning music for “Wild China,” the BBC’s six-part landmark series that was executive produced by “Born in China” producer Brian Leith, and originally broadcast in 2008. “It’s a traditional Western orchestral score that’s infused with some lovely Chinese flavors,” says Leith of the “Born in China” score. “I think he’s done a fantastic job.”

 Says Taylor, “‘Born in China‘ celebrates the epic, sometimes other-worldly landscapes of China, while simultaneously revealing the most intimate moments in the lives of four charismatic animals: panda, monkey, chiru and snow leopard,” he says. “Musically linking these animals with an overarching theme is the semi-mythical crane, a bird that symbolizes rebirth—an ancient philosophy and belief system that has a strong vein in the ‘Born in China‘ film. Therefore, the music had to be intimate whilst also reflecting the varied regions of China.”

Given an array of animals featured in the film, Taylor applied individual themes to each of the central characters and infused the sounds of China into the score with a host of unique instruments, including the Tibetan horn, Mongolian fiddle, Guzheng (zither) and Chinese dulcimer.

Filmmakers called on the New York-based rock-pop band American Authors to provide the compelling and optimistic end-credit song. “‘Everything Everything’ is about how life is so much better when you’re with your best friends,” says band frontman Zachary Barnett. “There are so many exciting adventures in this world and they should be shared with loved ones. We wanted to channel each of the animals’ spirits and journeys into this song.”

The Born in China soundtrack will be available at digital retailers and streaming services on April 21. For more information on Walt Disney Records’ releases, please visit Disney.com/music, become a fan at Facebook.com/disneymusic, follow us at Twitter.com/disneymusic, Instagram.com/disneymusic and Snapchat.

Moviegoers who see Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film “Born in China” during its opening week (April 21-27, 2017) will benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Based on opening-week attendance, Disneynature, via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the WWF to help protect wild pandas and snow leopards. Advance tickets to the movie are on sale now at Fandango. http://www.fandango.com/borninchina_185550/movietimes

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Available Today, March 10

Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Available Today, March 10

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Available Today, March 10

Available today wherever music is sold and streamed, the “Beauty and the Beast” original motion picture soundtrack features an unforgettable score from eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken along with new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and two-time Academy Award® winner Howard Ashman. Also included are three new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.

The story and characters audiences know and love come to spectacular life in Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast,” a stunning, cinematic event celebrating one of the most beloved tales ever told. Directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” stars: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Audra McDonald with Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson. “Beauty and the Beast” opens in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.

From early on, one of Condon’s key objectives was to build upon the story from the animated classic, and the Oscar-winning director realized music could play a significant role in making that happen. By finding interesting variations on beloved songs like “Be Our Guest” and “Gaston” and with the addition of new songs, music could help push the story forward while elevating its emotional content at the same time.

New songs featured in the film and included on the soundtrack are: “Evermore,” a soaring ballad performed by the Beast (Dan Stevens); the heartwarming “Days in the Sun,” sung by Belle (Emma Watson), the Beast and the castle’s enchanted staff; and “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” sung by Maurice (Kevin Kline) and in a reprise, by Belle.

The soundtrack also features three brand new recordings including the duet “Beauty and the Beast” by GRAMMY® nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10-time GRAMMY, Oscar®-winning and multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/musician John Legend. The iconic song originally recorded by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, features Alan Menken’s haunting melody and Howard Ashman’s memorable lyrics, and, upon its release in 1991, went on to receive an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and GRAMMY Award. The music video for “Breeauty and the Beast” was directed by Dave Meyers (P!nk’s “Just Like Fire,”  Katy Perry’s “Firework”) and can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axySrE0Kg6k.

In addition, five-time GRAMMY winning and best-selling recording artist Celine Dion performs “How Does A Moment Last Forever” and multi-platinum international recording artist and songwriter Josh Groban performed the third track, “Evermore.”

TheBeauty and the Beast” original motion picture soundtrack features 19 tracks and is available wherever music is sold and streamed (http://disneymusic.co/BeautySndtrkP, http://disneymusic.co/BeautySndtrk, http://disneymusic.co/BeautySndtrkWS). The Beauty and the Beast two-disc deluxe edition and the digital deluxe edition soundtrack, which are also available March 10, feature additional tracks including score, demos and outtakes.
