EXCLUSIVE! Hear ‘The Test’ by Rob Simonsen From The Upcoming ‘Gifted’ Soundtrack – Out on April 7

Gifted Soundtrack - Score by Rob Simonsen on Lakeshore Records

Below we have an exclusive premiere for “The Test,” piece of Simonsen’s original score for the new movie. This song, a calming-yet-lively piano composition, is a far cry from the pulsing electronic score of his recent NERVE soundtrack, and a testament to his range as a composer – Austin Trunick, Under The Radar

 

Ahead of the album debut, Under the Radar has the exclusive song premiere for “The Test” by Rob Simonsen (listen here), from the forthcoming Gifted (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), out Friday, April 7 on Lakeshore Records!  You can pre-order the album now from iTunes here.

Directed by (500) Days of Summer’s Marc Webb, GIFTED movie stars Chris Evans (Captain America: Civil War) and McKenna Grace (TV’s “Once Upon A Time” “Fuller House”).  Check out our previous coverage on Gifted film here.

Fox Searchlight Pictures presents GIFTED, in select theaters Friday, April 7 (get tickets).

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with ‘Brooklyn’, Best Picture Academy Award Nominated Film Starring Saoirse Ronan

For St. Patrick’s Day, celebrate Irish American culture and heritage with the Academy Award® Best Picture Nominee, Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan!  The soundtrack features the acclaimed score by Michael Brook, Canadian Grammy®– and Golden Globe®-nominated composer, plus hear some traditional Irish music and some classic ’50s American tunes on the Various Artists album.  Watch our Brooklyn Playlist below and get a taste of a great Irish American story.

But aside from its lead and thoughtful direction, the movie’s ace-in-the-hole might be its lovely, plaintive music by composer Michael Brook – Rodrigo Perez, Indiewire

Fully lyrical with tasteful Irish-appropriate inflections, the score starts as it means to go on with the tender “Opening Titles”: a violin (performed by Brook’s wife) immediately establishes the Irish connection, accompanied by a wash of strings, a gentle piano melody, clarinet and mandolin. It conveys the essence of Eilis’ journey in a nutshell.  – mfiles

Soundtrack Available Now:
iTunes – [SCORE] [SOUNDTRACK] | Spotify – [SCORE] [SOUNDTRACK]

FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES presents BROOKLYN, available now on Blu-ray/DVD (get it here) and Digital HD Download (get it on iTunes).
