Preview Two Tracks from the IT Score

Get ready to preview the haunting score to the highly anticipated adaptation on Stephen King’s IT, hitting theatres September 8th. The tracks, “Pennywise’s Tower” and “You’ll Float Too”, are composed by Benjamin Wallfisch, who had this to say to EW:

Every now and again, you come across a movie where the storytelling is so powerful, the subtext so visceral, the synergy between director, narrative and actors so palpable, that as a composer you can feel the music being energized by something so much bigger than what’s just on the screen. Creating a score to tell the story of a shapeshifting antagonist of unimaginable evil that can only be defeated when a group of individuals come together as one required metamorphic themes, extremes of sonic irreverence and heartfelt quiet, and, most importantly, a musical language that strived to be constantly informed by the profound emotional truth driving the heartbeat of the filmmaking.

   

Jaeden Lieberher, Nicholas Hamilton, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Chosen Jacobs, Wyatt Oleff, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis star with Bill Skarsgard, portraying Pennywise. Andrés Muschietti directs.

The CD and digital release of the score is September 8th, and you can pre-order it here. Special edition Vinyl due to come out October 27th.
