“WIND RIVER also boasts some of the most exciting music I have heard in cinema in recent time.” – Screen Comment
Lakeshore Records and Invada Records are proud to announce the labels will be releasing the Wind River (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) digitally on August 4, 2017. The soundtrack will be released on vinyl and on CD later this year. The album features the original score by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis (Hell Or High Water, War Machine). Hear the debut track (below), “Three Seasons In Wyoming,” which premiered last week at Pitchfork!
Recently screened at both the Sundance and Cannes film festivals, the film was described as, “a quiet, meditative crime drama, and a wonderfully effective one, aided by haunting music by Warren Ellis and Nick Cave” by The Wrap. Screen Daily said, “Music, from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, seems to underline the isolation and alienation of the reservation, to speak of the sadness of a people set apart.”
“The soundtrack to the beautiful WIND RIVER was first and foremost the incessant wind or the grieving silence of the snow,” said the composers, Nick Cave & Warren Ellis. “Amid those elemental forces we made a kind of ghost score where voices whisper and choirs rise up and die away and electronics throb and pulse.”
The Weinstein Company presents WIND RIVER in theaters on August 4, 2017.
WIND RIVER is a chilling thriller that follows a rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) who teams up with a local game tracker with deep community ties and a haunted past (Jeremy Renner) to investigate the murder of a local girl on a remote Native American Reservation in the hopes of solving her mysterious death. Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, WIND RIVER also stars Gil Birmingham, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, and James Jordan.
They added, “It was a huge pleasure to work with Taylor Sheridan as he seemed to have a unique understanding of the power of music, that it could become the second-voice in the film.”
