La-La Land Records will be releasing the Justice League: Gods and Monsters soundtrack CD (limited edition 1000 units) exclusively at lalalandrecords.com on August 11, 2015. Composer Frederik Wiedmann composed the music for the DC Universe Animated Original Movie available on DVD and BluRay also on July 28, 2015.
"I was super excited to get to work on Justice League: Gods and Monsters with Bruce Timm, our second project together," said Wiedmann. "When I first saw the footage, I was blown away by how different everything was. Nothing was like I expected. It was a very unique, new take on our favorite superheroes, an invitation for me to reinvent myself a little bit from a musical perspective, which is a very exciting place to start a new project."
"Our three main heroes all have a very dark past, and as we get to learn about their backstory the music follows the tragic events of their journey beat by beat," Wiedmann described. "We recorded a wonderful group of 30 strings at East West Studios in Los Angeles (conducted by Hyesu Yang), giving the emotional aspects of the score the depth and warmth it deserves. You will also hear an array of dulcimers and guitars, as well as ethnic woodwinds (performed by Chris Bleth), mostly complimenting Wonder Woman's backstory and giving it a slightly ethnic flavor ("In Another Life")."
