Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Sets Sail On May 26


The 
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Original Motion Picture Soundtrack physical and digital soundtrack is set for release from Walt Disney Records on May 26, 2017, the same day the film opens in U.S. theaters.  As with the previous “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, and with a nod to its swashbuckling predecessors in the genre, music plays a integral role in “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” which features a score by Emmy®-winning composer Geoff Zanelli with melodies filled with excitement and intrigue as befits the pirates’ latest journey.

Composer Geoff Zanelli is a standout in the film and television scoring industry, garnering accolades and recognition for his diverse musical voice. Notably, his experience with the Pirates franchise goes back to its 2003 beginning, having contributed music and collaborated with composer Hans Zimmer.  Some of his other credits include Steven Spielberg’s “Into The West,” Disney’s “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” “The Pacific,” “Disturbia,” “Hitman,” “Outlander” and more recently “Mortdecai,” for which he collaborated with Grammy®-award winning Mark Ronson on both the co-written score and songs.

Zanelli said, “Pirates of the Caribbean was a dream project for me right from the very first film. To have served these iconic stories, which continue to inspire people young and old all over the world is easily one of the biggest highlights of my life.  Musically, I took the helm right as the world of ‘Pirates’ expanded with a darker and more emotional tale than ever before, and there was no shortage of inspiration each day. Because I approached this with passion equal to the filmmakers, the actors, and everyone else involved, I can say this about my score for ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’:  I meant every note.”

Also available digitally is the bonus track  “He’s a Pirate” by Hans Zimmer vs. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.  The original theme was introduced in “The Curse of the Black Pearl” by Oscar®-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“Interstellar,” “The Dark Knight,” “The Lion King”) and has been re-recorded by Belgian DJ and music producer duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, who recently had two No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart.

The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available wherever music is sold on May 26, 2017 HERE and HERE.

DISNEY•PIXAR’S “CARS 3” Fuels TWO ALL NEW Soundtracks for the Film!

DISNEY•PIXAR'S "CARS 3" Fuels TWO ALL NEW Soundtracks for the Film!

DISNEY•PIXAR’S “CARS 3” Fuels TWO ALL NEW Soundtracks for the Film!

As Lightning McQueen heads to the big screen alongside his new tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez, Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” fuels two soundtrack releases—both available from Walt Disney Records on June 16 as the film opens in theaters nationwide. The Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, features eight tracks—including original songs by Dan Auerbach and ZZ Ward, four covers by various artists, and two instrumental tracks from Brad Paisley. The Cars 3 Original Score Composed and Conducted by Randy Newman reunites the “Cars” franchise with the Oscar®-winning composer. Both soundtracks are available for pre-order tomorrow, May 19, 2017.

“Lightning McQueen is on the journey of a lifetime—traveling cross-country, revisiting the past and looking into his own heart and soul to answer some big questions,” said “Cars 3” director Brian Fee. “Just like the music in the first two ‘Cars’ movies, the songs and score in this film really help support the story we are telling.”

CARS MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK
The Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features “Run That Race,” an original song written and performed by nine-time Grammy® winner Dan Auerbach that can be heard as the movie opens. “The song is about never giving up and always trying your best,” said Auerbach, who met with filmmakers prior to penning the song. “They showed me the storyboards and ran through the plot. I was able to read some of the dialogue and from there I had enough to piece together a story in my mind for the song.”

Auerbach will release Waiting on a Song, his second solo album, on June 2 via his new label, Easy Eye Sound.  

The soundtrack also features “Ride,” an original end-credit song performed by Hollywood Records artist ZZ Ward, featuring musician Gary Clark Jr. Written by Ward, Evan Bogart and Dave Bassett, the song was released by Walt Disney Records as a digital single on April 14. It was performed live by Ward April 17 on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Ward’s sophomore album, The Storm, will be released June 30.

The soundtrack also features four cover songs, including two bonus tracks.*

  • “Kings Highway,” originally released in 1991 by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, makes a comeback courtesy of 23-year-old British singer-songwriter James Bay.
  • Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 hit “Glory Days” gets a modern-day makeover by Grammy®-nominated performer Andra Day, who voices Sweet Tea in the film—a performer in the Cotter Pin with a hairstyle reminiscent of Day’s signature look.  
  • *The Beatles’ classic 1965 song “Drive My Car” is back on the road, compliments of Hollywood Records artist Jorge Blanco.
  • *”Freeway of Love,” made famous in 1985 by Aretha Franklin, is performed for the soundtrack by actress Lea DeLaria, who also provides the voice of Miss Fritter, a school bus-turned-demolition-derby-queen in “Cars 3.”

Three-time Grammy®-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer Brad Paisley, who has 24 No. 1 singles under his belt, was called on to create two instrumental tracks that are featured on the Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. “Truckaroo” and “Thunder Hollow Breakdown” accompany the film’s action-packed Crazy 8 demolition derby sequence that puts Lightning and Cruz in the midst of total chaos. “Brad Paisley was part of both ‘Cars’ and ‘Cars 2,'” said Tom MacDougall, executive vice president of music at Disney. “We knew he could have some fun with a demolition derby, and he just killed it. His down-home country tracks really add to the scene’s action and humor.”

From Walt Disney Records, the Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available June 16 and can be pre-ordered digitally HERE and via Amazon HERE.

CARS 3 ORIGINAL SCORE SOUNDTRACK
Newman, who was behind the Oscar®-winning music in Disney·Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” and “Monsters, Inc.,” composed the score for the first “Cars” movie and penned the Oscar®-nominated song “Our Town.” For “Cars 3,” Newman created a score that reflects the heart and high-octane action of the film—21 tracks are included on the soundtrack. “Randy has a real connection to the ‘Cars’ world,” says MacDougall. “His ability to capture the feeling of this film, its characters, locations and the Americana theme throughout is extraordinary—the music is so naturally fluid and inspired. It really feels like Randy is coming home with this score.”

Newman used a 110-piece orchestra to record the score. The Cars 3 Original Score Composed and Conducted by Randy Newman is available June 16 from Walt Disney Records and can be pre-ordered HERE.

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.

World Premiere Studio Recording Of Disney Freaky Friday A New Musical

World Premiere Studio Recording Of Disney Freaky Friday A New Musical

World Premiere Studio Recording Of Disney Freaky Friday A New Musical

The world premiere studio recording of Disney’s Freaky Friday, the new musical based on the beloved novel by Mary Rodgers and two hit Disney films, is released digitally by Walt Disney Records today, February 10, 2017. The album is available now wherever digital music is sold (http://disneymusic.co/FreakyFriday) and streamed (http://disneymusic.co/FreakyFridayW).

Physical CDs will be available beginning March 17 and can be pre-ordered here: http://disneymusic.co/FreakyFridayAMP.

Featuring a book by Bridget Carpenter (TV’s “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood”) and a score by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning team of Tom Kitt (music) and Brian Yorkey (lyrics), creators of the celebrated Broadway musicals Next to Normal and If/Then, Freaky Friday had its world premiere at the Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA in fall 2016. The production was directed by two-time Tony nominee (Rocky Horror Show and Memphis) and artistic director of the world-renowned La Jolla Playhouse Christopher Ashley and choreographed by Olivier Award winner and Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys; On Your Feet!).

Buzzfeed named the show one of the best musicals of 2016, raving, “Freaky Friday captures the best of great Disney musicals. The catchy, surprisingly deep score by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey is their best work since Next to Normal.” The Washington Post calls the show “a polished, peppy, modern fairy tale” with “up-to-the-minute pop cultural relevance,” and Variety hails its “timeless appeal” and “rousing, up-tempo score with stirring melodies.”

The two stars of the Signature Theatre production, Broadway performers Heidi Blickenstaff (Something Rotten!; [title of show]) and Emma Hunton (Next to Normal), reprise their “marvelously sung, resonantly comical” (The Washington Post) performances as mother and daughter Katherine and Ellie Blake on the studio recording. The studio cast also features Jason Gotay (Bring It On The Musical) as Adam, Alan H. Green (Sister Act, School of Rock) as Mike, Ann Harada (Avenue Q, 9 to 5, Cinderella) as Torrey, and Jake Heston Miller as Fletcher, with Shayna Blass, Tyler Bowman, Sherri Edelen, Katie Ladner, Jess LeProtto, Storm Lever, Thaddeus McCants, Tanisha Moore, Julian Ramos, Preston Sadleir, Bobby Smith, Jason Sweettooth Williams and Natasha Yvette Williams.

Music supervision for Disney’s Freaky Friday Studio Cast Recording is by Bryan Perri, orchestrations are by Tom Kitt and Michael Starobin, vocal arrangements are by Tom Kitt and Carmel Dean, and dance and incidental arrangements are by Tom Kitt.

The Freaky Friday Studio Cast Recording was recorded in Manhattan at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music in December 2016.

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the beloved novel by Mary Rodgers and two hit Disney films, is a hilarious, contemporary update of an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience each other’s lives first-hand, if only for a day.

Set in the present day, Freaky Friday features a tuneful pop-rock score, fittingly for a work that has effortlessly updated throughout its several iterations.  The novel (1972), the first film starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster (1976), the second film starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan (2003) and this new stage musical are all set in their respective present day.

Freaky Friday was developed by Disney Theatrical Productions expressly for licensing via partner Musical Theatre International first to professional and then amateur theatres, with productions taking place at La Jolla Playhouse, Cleveland Play House and the Alley Theatre this year. It follows the trajectory of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which is now available to professional theatres worldwide following acclaimed engagements at La Jolla Playhouse and Paper Mill Playhouse.
