Varèse Sarabande: ORPHAN BLACK Soundtrack and Score!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On May 19th, Varèse Sarabande will release two albums of music from Temple Street Production's hit series ORPHAN BLACK, the original soundtrack featuring songs by Tears For Fears, Meredith Brooks and the “Theme From Orphan Black” by Two Fingers, as well as the original score album composed by Trevor Yuile (BEING ERICA, BILLABLE HOURS).  In addition, a 1,000-unit picture disc of the soundtrack album will be exclusively available at Hot Topic on July 24, 2015.  A regular vinyl release of the soundtrack album is planned for a late summer release. The Varèse Sarabande deal was brokered by Striker Entertainment on behalf of Temple Street Productions.


The soundtrack album includes songs like Meredith Brooks’ “Bitch”, famously lip-synched to by soccer-mom Alison who is generally represented by 90s pop, Daniel Romano’s “When I Was Abroad”, which plays when Helena breaks someone’s finger in the bar, Tears for Fears “Head Over Heels” played when Felix prepares for his date with the morgue-worker, and of course the “Theme From Orphan Black” by Two Fingers.

The second album features composer Trevor Yuile’s Canadian Screen Award-winning original score.  “I started with Sarah in the early episodes, everything was derived from her original palette,” Yuile described.  “If you listen closely, not only do the clones have their own themes and palettes, but I often borrow from one and bring it to another (depending on the scene) but they are all related, there’s a little Sarah in Helena, a little Helena in Alison, an so on.”

Composer/arranger/song-writer Trevor Yuile practically thinks in music. For him, music provides the emotional glue that connects the inner world of each character with the audience. Thus, a great music soundtrack is all about communicating the heart of the story in as efficient, but artful way as possible. 

Season Three of ORPHAN BLACK is currently airing on BBC America and SPACE in Canada (Saturdays 9/8C).  The ORPHAN BLACK – Original Television Soundtrack and ORPHAN BLACK – Original Television Score, both on Varèse Sarabande, will be available digitally and on CD on May 19, 2015.
