Lakeshore Records will release the FROM INSIDE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD on October 7th, and will release the FROM INSIDE: GARY NUMAN SPECIAL EDITION on DVD on October 21, 2014. The album features original music by Gary Numan & Ade Fenton.
FROM INSIDE was Numan’s first solo foray into writing for film. He explained, “With an album of rock songs you work in a verse / chorus type of format, with film you have no such limits. Although I'm very new to film composing to me it was a very welcome change, it was surprisingly liberating as a writer to not be tied to the 'song' approach to making music.”
The British-born Numan first reached prominence as a member of Tubeway Army and later as a solo artist during the British New Wave movement of the 1980s. Widely credited as one of the founding fathers of ‘synth-pop’, Numan has been a lasting hero of electronic musicians for several decades, releasing over 35 albums and constantly touring since first breaking onto the scene.
Based on the epic graphic novel by John Bergin, FROM INSIDE is the story of Cee, a young pregnant woman who finds herself on a damaged train slowly transcribing its way across a bleak post-apocalyptic landscape. Flood, war, starvation and a plague of death threaten the train’s passengers. Cee struggles through these dangers while coping with the memory of her lost husband and the imminent birth of her child.
“FROM INSIDE is reserved and dark. If the story itself had a sound it would be a quiet one-note drone,” said Bergin. “Gary’s music brought life and dynamics to the film that it was sorely missing. The film is a much better experience with his music. I couldn’t be more happy with the score.”
Lakeshore Records presents FROM INSIDE: GARY NUMAN SPECIAL EDITION available digitally and on DVD October 21, 2014. The FROM INSIDE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally and on CD October 7, 2014.
