CAPITOL RECORDS plans a global digital and CD release of "MUSIC FROM LOVE & MERCY," the official soundtrack to LIONSGATE/ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS/RIVER ROAD’s acclaimed BRIANWILSON biopic.
Produced by WILSON, the film’s composer ATTICUS ROSS, and the film’s producer and director BILL POHLAD, the album's 13 tracks include “One Kind Of Love,” a ballad written and recorded by WILSON specifically for the film, original BEACH BOYS classics, star PAUL DANO’s stirring performance of “God Only Knows” from the film, and original score pieces by ROSS. The soundtrack will be released digitally tomorrow (AUGUST 14th), with the CD release to follow on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th.
“ATTICUS’ musical work with the film was absolutely brilliant,” says WILSON. “Through the score he was able to tastefully capture some of the most joyful and dark moments of my life.”
“It was a great privilege to be part of the team that brought ‘LOVE & MERCY’ to life,” says ROSS. “Beyond the beautiful and tragic events in BRIAN WILSON's life, the film is an uncompromising exploration into the creative process of undoubtedly one of the most inventive and sophisticated musical creators to have ever recorded. BILL POHLAD's unique vision celebrates that process with an insight and energy that inspired us all to reach for the best of our own creative abilities. In terms of the musical story telling it seemed essential to keep BRIAN ever-present and it's a testament to both his generosity and ongoing imagination that he allowed unprecedented access to his archive to achieve that goal.”
