If you've been a reader of this site, you'll know that one composer who has caught our ear in a big way is Jóhann Jóhannsson. Over the past few years, his profile has risen with work on several films including So Yong Kim's "For Ellen" and Lou Ye's "Mystery," before landing last year in multiplexes across the country with his haunting, gorgeous work on Denis Villeneuve's "Prisoners." And with 2014 upon us, Jóhannsson is back with more music to capture our attention.

McCanick

If you've been a reader of this site, you'll know that one composer who has caught our ear in a big way is Jóhann Jóhannsson. Over the past few years, his profile has risen with work on several films including So Yong Kim's "For Ellen" and Lou Ye's "Mystery," before landing last year in multiplexes across the country with his haunting, gorgeous work on Denis Villeneuve's "Prisoners." And with 2014 upon us, Jóhannsson is back with more music to capture our attention.

The Icelandic composer has tuned up the forthcoming drama "McCanick" from director John C. Waller, editor Brett Bachman and cinematographer Martin Ahlgren. Featuring "Glee" star Cory Monteith in his last role along with David Morse, Ciarin Hinds and Mike Vogel, the film tells the story of a narcotics detective and a seemingly harmless ex-prisoner who clash over the course of one long, hot summer day. You can feel the tension and heat rising from Jóhannsson's score in this exclusive featurette cutting together scenes from the Philadelphia shot film along with cues from the soundtrack.

"McCanick" by Johann Johannsson is now available on Milan Records, digitally at iTunes or CD and LP at Amazon. The release is published by Mute Song. The film is now available on Ultra VOD and in theaters March 21st.
