Sony Music: "ANIMAL CRACKERS" music by Bear McCreary


Sony Music announces the July 17 release of ANIMAL CRACKERS (MUSIC FROM THE NETFLIX ORIGINAL FILM) with music by EMMY® and BAFTA award-winning composer BEAR MCCREARY.  Available for preorder now, the album features music written by McCreary for the animated comedy-fantasy film based on the well-loved, animal-shaped cookie.  Starring the voices of John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Danny DeVito, Ian McKellen, Sylvester Stallone and more, Animal Crackers will be available to watch on Netflix beginning Friday, July 24.

Of the score, composer BEAR MCCREARY says, “Animal Crackers unleashed my inner child’s musical imagination. Directors Scott Christian Sava and the legendary Tony Bancroft let me go wild on this score, infusing it with kazoos, accordions, gypsy fiddles, calliope, and symphonic orchestra, to create zany chaos for the film’s slapstick comedic adventures, as well as lush melodies to support the heartfelt, sincere family story at the film’s core. I am grateful that Netflix will bring this remarkable film to a wide audience, and that my original score will soon be available from Sony Masterworks."

Sony Music will also release the Animal Crackers (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) on Friday, July 17.  Available for preorder now, the album features original music from Toad the Wet Sprocket, Ian McKellen, Howard Jones and more, as well as well-loved music featured in the film from artists including Michael Bublé, Huey Lewis & the News and Queen.  Making its debut today is a new original track from Toad The Wet Sprocket – listen to “One of Those Days” here.
