Lakeshore Records, in conjunction with Invada Records, will release Free Fire (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) digitally on March 31, 2017. The album features songs from The Real Kids, Creedence Clearwater Revival and two classic tracks by John Denver, plus original score by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury (Ex Machina, “Black Mirror: Men Against Fire”). Compiled by director Ben Wheatley himself, the soundtrack features the full score by Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury, dialogue from the film and license tracks (The Real Kids – Do The Boob // Creedence Clearwater Revival – Run Through The Jungle // John Denver – Annie’s Song // John Denver – This Old Guitar). See full track listing below.
Free Fire sees Barrow and Salisbury take a huge directional curve away from their intense, synth-based Ivor Novello award winning score for Ex Machina, with the composers curating a prog-rock, free-jazz, psychedelic journey influenced by bands such as King Crimson, Camel and Magma and tips its hat to the Lalo Schifrin thriller genre scores of that era. The score features musical luminaries Clive Deamer (Radiohead/Portishead), Billy Fuller (Robert Plant/Beak), Jason Hazeley (Portishead) and Ross Hughes (Portishead), and Jerry Crozier-Cole (Pee Wee Ellis).
A24 presents FREE FIRE in US theaters nationwide on April 21, 2017.
