Available today, Marvel Music/Hollywood Records releases “Louisiana Hero", the end-credit track from Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier streaming exclusively on Disney+. Music is by composer Henry Jackman (The Comey Rule, Captain America: Civil War). "Louisiana Hero" will be followed by two digital soundtrack releases, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: Volume 1 (Episodes 1-3) on April 9 and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: Volume 2 (Episodes 3-6) on April 30. Album producers are Kevin Feige, Kari Skogland and Dave Jordan.
Commenting on the track, Jackman said, “Composing ‘Louisiana Hero’ was an exciting challenge. The idea was to take the brief heroic melody used for Falcon in the score for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and develop that motif into a fully realized super hero theme. At the same time I wanted to ground the piece by using elements of Southern blues to reflect the fact that Sam/Falcon comes from Louisiana.”
ABOUT THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER
Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier. The pair, who came together in the final moments of Avengers: Endgame, team up on a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience. Directed by Kari Skogland with Malcolm Spellman serving as head writer, the six-episode series also stars Daniel Brühl as Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier debuted worldwide on Disney+ March 19, 2021 to critical acclaim and was ranked as the most watched series premiere ever on Disney+ during its opening weekend, Friday, March 19 – Sunday, March 22, and the most watched title overall for the same time period on a global basis, including in Disney+ Hotstar markets.
ABOUT HENRY JACKMAN
Henry Jackman has established himself as one of today’s top composers by fusing his classical training with his experience as a successful record producer and creator of electronic music.
“I’ve spent a lot of time working in the record industry,” says Jackman, “and for my money being a film composer is way more fun. You can be working on X-Men, and then a movie set in 17th-century Italy. It’s not about showing off what you think is cool or what you want to hear, but ‘what is this movie about, and what would best serve it?’ That process just leads to strange and remarkable places.”
Recent projects include Cherry, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo; Jumanji 2, a continuation of the magical board game adventure story; and Detective Pikachu, following the story of the beloved Pikachu Pokémon character starring Ryan Reynolds. Jackman’s other recent work includes the Oscar®-nominated animated feature film Ralph Breaks the Internet. His diverse credits include Captain America: Civil War, Kong: Skull Island, Captain Phillips, Big Hero 6, and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
