Eight years after the DreamWorks Television and Steven Spielberg-produced Into the West made its television debut, the Emmy-award winning score by Geoff Zanelli is being released. The release comes after sustained public interest and requests, which have surged in the past year following the series re-airing on AMC.
Paramount Music will distribute the digital version of the soundtrack, with La-La Land Records handling the physical release. The 2-disc album will feature 51 tracks from the miniseries and is expected to be available by Spring 2013.
The Into the West miniseries was produced by DreamWorks Television and Steven Spielberg, and debuted on June 10, 2005. The miniseries received 16 Emmy award nominations in 2006, more than any other program that year. It went on to win two Emmys, including Outstanding Music Composition for Geoff Zanelli's score.
Zanelli's music was most recently heard in Walt Disney Pictures' The Odd Life of Timothy Green, which earned him attention from the music community, including a profile in the prestigious Variety Music for Screens: Oscar Issue. A longtime collaborator with Hans Zimmer, Zanelli's work is also featured in The Pirates of the Caribbean series, and the upcoming film The Lone Ranger.
