Lakeshore Records: THE RUNNER [2015] - The Newton Brothers


Lakeshore Records will release THE RUNNER – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on September 25, 2015. The album features original music by The Newton Brothers (OCULUS, LIFE OF CRIME).

In the aftermath of the 2010 BP oil spill, an idealistic but flawed politician (Nicolas Cage) is forced to confront his dysfunctional life after his career is destroyed in a sex scandal. Also stars Sarah Paulson, Connie Nielsen, Wendell Pierce, Bryan Batt and Peter Fonda.

Composers Andy Grush and Taylor Newton Stewart, better known as The Newton Brothers, drew inspiration for their score from both the humanity of the film’s characters and the tense political climate that serves as a backdrop. Collaborating with director Austin Stark, The Newton Brothers sought to find a musical balance befitting of the movie’s vision. “We had the political aspect of the film which we scored one way, and then Colin Price and his inner-struggles as another tone. We needed something minimal and intimate for Colin’s internal struggle to capture the humanity of his situation. It provides commentary on how we deal with vulnerability, life, and change - which is something everyone can connect with,” explained Stewart.


The Newton Brothers’ upcoming projects include comedy CHLOE & THEO starring Dakota Johnson and Mira Sorvino, the Mike Flanagan thriller BEFORE I WAKE which they co-scored with Danny Elfman, the comedy DRIVE, SHE SAID with Jason Biggs and Ashley Tisdale, and season 2 of ABC Family drama CHASING LIFE.

Paper Street Films and Back Lot Pictures present THE RUNNER currently in select theaters, on iTunes and On Demand.  THE RUNNER – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally September 25, 2015.
