An indepth interview with David Arnold, the man behind the scores for Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day, is now up at Move Poop Shoot, the site which last week reviewed the Die Another Day Soundtrack.
The interview covers a lot of Arnold’s participation with Die Another Day, speaking of how he was approached to score the film after completing The World Is Not Enough right through to details on how particular areas of the film have been scored.
Of particular interest is Arnold’s mentioning of a song he and Don Black had begun to write for the film. Entitled “I Will Return” Arnold says, “Well, we had kind of started working on a song that remains unfinished. The theme of the song is in the film and is called “I Will Return”… Don came up with an amazing first verse, which set me off. We started on it but then found out pretty quick that there wasn’t going to be an opportunity to place it as a song in the film or on the End Titles. So we’ll save it for the next one because it’s dead good!” While fans may have to wait till 2004 to hear the song, Arnold did mention that, like Surrender from Tomorrow Never Dies, elements will appear in the Die Another Day score.
Arnold also speaks of the possibility of a later release of the full Die Another Day score, an idea sure to please Bond fans.
