Sony Music announces the release of The Highwaymen (Original Score from the Netflix Film), with music by Grammy, Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning composer Thomas Newman, whose scoring credits include American Beauty, Six Feet Under, Skyfall, Finding Nemo and more. Available Friday, March 29, the soundtrack features music from Netflix's newest original film, starring Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson and Kathy Bates – available exclusively on Netflix Friday, March 29.
Of the soundtrack, composer Thomas Newman says: "The Highwaymen is already steeped in the perfume of the south. The desolate, dry landscapes of Texas and Oklahoma. Ringgold Road in Louisiana where Maney Gault and Frank Hamer finally catch up with Bonnie and Clyde and where everything ends. The music leans towards local flavor on the one hand, and a tense, personal psychology on the other. Foot stomps, knee slaps. Steel-wound and nylon string guitars. Country fiddle. Waltz rhythms, square rhythms. All tumbling towards an inevitable, unsettling conclusion in Depression-era America, 1934."
