Walt Disney Records: "NOELLE" music by Clyde Lawrence and Cody Fitzgerald


Walt Disney Records releases the Noelle digital soundtrack, streaming exclusively on Disney+ today.  The album features score composed by Clyde Lawrence and Cody Fitzgerald.

For the “Noelle” score, writer-director Marc Lawrence chose to keep it within the family. His son Clyde wrote the score with his scoring partner, Cody Fitzgerald from the band Stolen Jars, making them two of the youngest composers to ever score a film for Disney. His daughter Gracie and Clyde’s band, Lawrence, wrote and perform two original songs on the soundtrack and perform an additional four songs.

“Cody and I come from different backgrounds, but we realized there was this through line of vulnerability, honesty, nostalgia, and warmth that we were both really passionate about,” says Clyde Lawrence. “That big breakthrough made us realize that we were great partners for film scoring and other collaborations.”

“Clyde and I really had a vision for the score, which is a combination of both of our styles: soul, pop and indie rock plus a hip-hop vibe,” says Fitzgerald. “Then mixing it with Disney and Christmas makes it turn into something that really feels right for the movie.”

 
In Disney+’s holiday comedy “Noelle,” Kris Kringle’s daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something “important” like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over for their father this Christmas. When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away...but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas. The sudden disappearance of the new Santa (Bill Hader) leads to chaos in the North Pole, so Mrs. Kringle (Julie Hagerty) must step up to rein in the hi-tech replacement Santa, Cousin Gabe (Billy Eichner). Meanwhile, Noelle and Elf Polly (Shirley MacLaine), the family’s acerbic but good-hearted nanny, are down South on a search-and-recover mission, during which Noelle (Anna Kendrick) comes to realize she has much in common with her father and begins to understand the true meaning of Christmas. Written and directed by Marc Lawrence, “Noelle” stars Anna Kendrick, Bill Hader, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Billy Eichner, Julie Hagerty and Shirley MacLaine. The film is produced by Suzanne Todd with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer.
