“Blake Neely’s ominous, howling score plunges the film immediately into the danger zone, often with a subtlety only sonar can detect.” – Los Angeles Times
Everybody is talking about the new Tom Hanks movie, Greyhound, premiering on Apple TV+ Friday, July 10! The epic action film also features an original score by three-time EMMY® Nominee Blake Neely (Visible: Out on Television, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow“, “You“, “Riverdale“), out now digitally on Lakeshore Records. See soundtrack download links and more below.
The often tension-filled score uses orchestration to ominous effect as it evokes the events inspired by the Battle of the Atlantic which took place during World War II. The action-packed film starring and written by Tom Hanks makes its global debut to audiences in over 100 countries on July 10 exclusively on Apple TV+.
