Walt Disney Records: "DUMBO" music by Danny Elfman


Walt Disney Records releases the digital soundtrack for the Walt Disney Pictures film “Dumbo” today, with the physical album to follow on April 5.   Directed by Tim Burton and featuring a score by composer Danny Elfman, as well as the iconic song “Baby Mine,” “Dumbo” flies into theaters today.

Perhaps the most memorable moment in Disney’s 1941 classic film is the poignant lullaby, “Baby Mine.”  The soundtrack and film feature new versions of the iconic song.  Sharon Rooney, who plays Miss Atlantis, performs the song in the film, and Grammy®-winning group Arcade Fire performs a touching acoustic rendition the end-credit version.

Elfman’s score was performed by an 85-piece orchestra and choir in London.  For more than 30 years, four-time Oscar® nominee Danny Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. He has collaborated with directors such as Tim Burton on 17 films, Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro, Rob Marshall, Ang Lee, Rob Minkoff, Brian De Palma, James Ponsoldt and David O. Russell. Beginning with his first score on Tim Burton’s “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” Elfman has scored over 100 films, including “Milk” (Oscar nominated), “Good Will Hunting” (Oscar-nominated), “Big Fish” (Oscar-nominated), “Men in Black” (Oscar-nominated), “Edward Scissorhands,” “Batman,” “To Die For,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” More recently he has provided the music for Warner Bros.’ “Justice League” and “The Grinch."  Elfman is currently scoring “Men in Black: International.”
