KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD - FEATURES THE MUSIC OF DANIEL PEMBERTON


WaterTower Music today announced the release of the soundtrack to filmmaker Guy Ritchie’s action adventure King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, in theatres May 12, 2017. The album features music from Golden Globe-nominated composer Daniel Pemberton (Steve Jobs, Man From U.N.C.L.E.), and will be released in both a 26-track standard edition available on CD and digitally, as well as a 30-track digital deluxe edition. The digital versions will be released May 5, followed by the CD release on May 19.

The unique, inventive and broad creative range Pemberton brings to his projects is omnipresent on the King Arthur: Legend of the Sword album. “This isn’t your usual Hollywood epic adventure, it’s a Guy Ritchie Hollywood epic adventure,” explained Pemberton. “That means usual rules don’t apply. In fact no rules apply. All that matters is can you make a score that sounds like nothing else? That was the mission.

“I started to curate a mongrel orchestra made up of the weirdest instruments and sounds I could find and make,” continued Pemberton. “I would be up at 2am with my face red and stinging, having spent the last hour slapping it as hard as I could to get unusual percussive sounds. I told my neighbors to not worry if they heard any screaming from my flat; I was just trying an idea out. There is so much rich imagery in the film – the dirt, the grime, the metal, the leather, the wood, the stones – I wanted to bring as much of this into the score as I could. We wanted the music to feel physically visceral. Bit by bit we built it into a soundtrack that could take you on a journey the size and scale of the movie itself.”

It sounds like an epic movie and from a King Arthur perspective looks all set to hit the dirt flying
