Varèse Sarabande Records will release the JOHN WICK – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on October 21 and on CD October 27, 2014. The soundtrack features original score composed by Tyler Bates (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, SUPER) and Joel J. Richard (COMPOUND FRACTURE, TV’s RAVENSWOOD). The album also features the songs “Evil Man Blues” performed by The Candy Shop Boys, “In My Mind” performed by M86 & Susie Q, and “Who You Talkin’ To Man” performed by Ciscandra Nostalghia and co-written by Nostalghia and Bates.
“The initial goal was to get into the headspace of John Wick and the tone/essence of John's story first, rather than jumping right into applying music to picture,” said Richard. “The opening sequence was the first scene tackled. It was originally much longer and contained elements from the end of the film. It felt like a logical place to begin the writing process given that the original cut of the scene contained both elements of John mourning his wife and his inner bad-ass.”
Summit Entertainment presents JOHN WICK in theaters on October 24, 2014. JOHN WICK - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from Varèse Sarabande Records will be available digitally on October 21 and on CD October 27, 2014.
