Digital New Releases:
IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK – [Download/Listen]
Score by Nicholas Britell.
Listen to a track from Nicholas Britell’s score of ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ and swoon – Awards Watch
Britell’s moody composition is totally different than anything he did for Moonlight, but just as good — it makes Beale Street’s story of love and resilience even more radiant. – Vulture
In the track “Agape,” you hear just what makes the music in ‘Beale Street’ so memorable and emotional. Especially when you see how this piece is used in the film, you’ll experience a flood of emotions that you’ll have trouble replicating in any other film experience this year. – The Playlist
Before you see Barry Jenkin’s eagerly-anticipated film, If Beale Street Could Talk in theaters next month, be sure to download and listen to Nicholas Britell’s swoon-worthy film score — available now worldwide on all digital music services! This release reunites Britell with Academy Award® Best Picture Winner of Moonlight, Barry Jenkins. Download and listen to the album to prepare yourself for this highly-anticipated film adaptation of a classic 1974 James Baldwin novel by the same name.
At its best it confirms Jenkins as one of the most talented filmmakers working today – BBC
An iconic Black love story – Essence
TRUST – [Download/Listen]
Score by James Lavelle.
“The Rig” is a dark and brooding bit of synth work with chugging synths that slowly rise and fall along a steady kick and builds with gravelly white noise in the background. – Magnetic Magazine
“Low” (incidentally the name of one of the most influential albums of the decade, by David Bowie, in his period of experimenting with electronic and ambient music) is right up my alley with the atmospheric mood. – Soundtrack Dreams
Created by Simon Beaufoy (who directed the first three episodes) and executive produced by Danny Boyle, Beaufoy and Christian Colson – the Academy Award®-winning team behind Slumdog Millionaire, comes Trust, featuring score by James Lavelle of the pioneering British music group UNKLE.
TRUST is now streaming on FX+ and BBC Two!
