This is an absolutely wonderful piece of news that we can’t believe we missed back at the start of March.
Earlier in the year, James Newton Howard and Lionsgate reached out to music schools and students across the UK to help contribute to the Mockingjay - Part 2 score, which was recorded last month at London’s Abbey Road Studios. Reportedly, over 2,000 young students submitted pieces, and Newton Howard picked out pieces from 24 lucky hopefuls to use in the final film score.
Happy 10 year anniversary to Kanye West’s Late Registration. I just absolutely love how baroque this album sounds, especially since it was influenced by Portishead’s Roseland NYC Live and was coproduced by Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind’s Jon Brion. Truly a classic album.
