LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WaterTower Music today announced the release of the Storks:
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, which features the music of
prolific composers Mychael Danna (Oscar Winner – “Life of Pi,”
“Moneyball,” “Little Miss Sunshine”), and Jeff Danna (“Kurt
Cobain: Montage of Heck,” “Fracture,” “The Imaginarium of Dr.
Parnassus”), and includes “Holdin’ Out” – a brand new song by The
Lumineers. The soundtrack will be released September 16, 2016, one week
in advance of the film, which will be released in 2D and 3D in select
theatres on September 23, 2016.
“Our approach to the score for Storks was very much inspired by
the legacy of the storied Warner Bros. animated tradition,” explained
composers Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna. “Recorded in the same WB studio
that those pioneering animation composers worked in, the music for Storks
moves through such divergent musical modes as Latin, Big Band, choral,
orchestral, electronic and ensembles of unusual and quirky instruments.
Tying these styles together are our melodic and emotional themes,
maintaining a cohesive sound despite the careening musical style
changes. Witty and bombastic, silly and yet with a strong emotional
payoff, we are very proud of the work we did for Storks.”
Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna possess a healthy body of critically
acclaimed works, both individually and collaboratively. They write the
original music for the FX series “Tyrant,” which earned them both Emmy
nominations. They were previously Emmy-nominated for “Camelot” in 2011.
Recently, they worked on the score for “The Good Dinosaur” and received
an Annie nomination for Outstanding Achievement, Music in an Animated
Feature Production. Their collaborative Orchestral Celtic albums have
enjoyed worldwide success and placed in the Top Ten on the Billboard chart
in the United States.
