Midnight Sun (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) – [Download/Stream]
Featuring original performances by Bella Thorne.
The score opens with a whimsical, lullaby like cue “Katie’s house” and it’s one of those pieces that get me in just a few seconds; I love quiet ambient music and this opening cue with it’s melodic, chiming texture and the soft guitar is just what the doctor ordered. – Soundtrack Dreams
Thorne not only portrays a guitar-playing girl in the movie; she contributes original music to the score as well — a real treat for fans who have been wanting to hear more of her musical side since she released her EP Jersey in 2014. – Wendy Geller, Yahoo! Entertainment
