Decca Records is releasing one of the most anticipated film soundtracks of the year: SPECTRE – the 24th James Bond adventure.
After the success of Skyfall and winning a BAFTA for best film music, Thomas Newman (‘American Beauty’, ‘The Shawshank Redemption’) returned on SPECTRE to create an original score to accompany the film. The soundtrack album includes a new instrumental version of Sam Smith’s new Bond main title song ‘Writing’s On The Wall’.
Thomas Newman comments: “It was a real honour to write the score to SPECTRE. The Bond films have such a rich musical heritage so it’s been an incredible privilege to return to the franchise after Skyfall and create a soundtrack for this spectacular new movie.”
Newman’s thrilling orchestral score heightens the action-packed film, which sees Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. He is joined by a star-studded cast which includes Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Monica Bellucci as Lucia, plus Ralph Fiennes who returns as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny.
In the latest adventure, James Bond embarks on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. As he ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks (played by Waltz).
