‘Skyfall’ marks Thomas Newman’s first shot at scoring a Bond film, and the first Bond film in 15 years to mark the absence of composer David Arnold, who worked on 5 consecutive James Bond movies, from 1997’s ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’, to 2008’s ‘Quantum of Solace’.
Amazon have listed the ‘Skyfall’ soundtrack, with a release date of October 22nd. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet, but if the previous few Bond films are anything to go by, then October 22nd seems like an ideal release date. No track listing’s have been added, but you can rely on CommanderBond.net to inform you as soon as they become available.
It is still unknown as to whether the yet to be announced title track will be available on the soundtrack, but if the releases for ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’ is anything to go by, I wouldn’t hold your breath.
A close friend of Sam Mendes, Newman’s most famous works include, The Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty and The Green Mile, so expectations are at an all time high.
Special thanks to ‘Shrublands’ for the alert.
