Lakeshore Records will release the Logan - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on March 3rd and on CD March 31, 2017. The album contains original music by Marco Beltrami who previously scored two films for director James Mangold, 3:10 to Yuma, for which Beltrami earned an Academy AwardŽ nomination, and The Wolverine.
"When I first watched Logan, I was really impressed with its originality," Beltrami stated. "Although it's a Marvel superhero movie, it is also many other movies as well, all tied up into a delicate balance of brazenness and subtlety. Jim is a master at moving fluently between genres and subverting them to present a new emotional landscape, and it was in trying to define this landscape in musical terms that I found my puzzle."
"Logan was an extremely demanding but very inspiring film score to work on. Jim distilled the innovation of an indie within the framework of a tentpole," Beltrami explained. "He played me scores he liked and which inspired the tone of the film for himTaxi Driver, Paper Moon (the film itself), The Gauntlet. He liked the directness and rough edges, the unpolished tone, the energy. Somehow I had to capture this while simultaneously creating a modern score. It did not need grandiose thematic music and verbose melodic statements. It was all about vibe."
