Nick Cave and Warren Ellis has written the soundtrack for a new film, Hell Or High Water.
The film is directed by British filmmaker David Mackenzie (Starred Up) and written by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario). It stars Ben Foster, Chris Pine and Jeff Bridges.
Said Mackenzie, “What I love about Nick and Warren’s film music is that it’s epic and expansive without being grandiose. For me as a filmmaker this hits a sweet spot where the score is able to have scale and emotion but not feel manipulative or overwhelming.”
The soundtrack is released on August 12 via Milan Records. Aside from the score from Cave and Ellis, it includes songs by Waylon Jennings and Townes Van Zandt.
