Sparks & Shadows announced the release date for the EVERLY – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack as January 20, 2015. As a special holiday bonus, fans that pre-order the soundtrack on iTunes now will receive the five holiday-themed tracks right away!
Composer Bear McCreary and the film's director Joe Lynch have teamed together with vocalist Raya Yarbrough to release a special gift, a video of "Silent Night," directed by Lynch and arranged by McCreary. The video can be viewed here.
"I first conceived of the story for Everly, as my ode to Asian cinema, holiday movies like Die Hard, and entrails," said Lynch. "Bear McCreary is one of the most eclectic composers working today and there was no-one else I wanted to tell this story with me musically, so much so I named the head Yakuza Boss 'Taiko' as an homage to one of Bear's signature sounds."
To score this 'symphony,' Lynch turned to frequent collaborator Bear McCreary. Lynch said, "Bear and Team McCreary (including his lovely muse Raya and badass brother Brendan, who worked on the holiday tracks) were the sonic glue that holds the madness together, and I don't know what the film would be like without his work on it."
