While Daniel Pemberton prepares to make his biggest splash yet as a feature film composer, with Ridley Scott's "The Counselor," he's been popping up on the right radars elsewhere for a while now. He's an Ivor Novello award winner and multi-BAFTA nominated composer who has done work extensively on TV, tuned up the Rebecca Hall chiller "The Awakening" and even worked on video games such as "Little Big Planet" and "Kinetic." But the Cormac McCarthy penned thriller is certainly his biggest opportunity and he's seized it with both hands.
Today we're excited to unveil four exclusive tracks from the score to the movie, and it's eclectic sampling to say the least. The compositions on display range from the daydreaming "The Hunter," to the nervy and nerve-wracking "Escape" and "Hotel Paranoia," to the mournful "Destroyed." It's already a promising series of tunes and we can expect much more to come on the complete album. Meanwhile, GQ has debuted an intriguing piece of viral footage today, a deleted scene of sorts that will not be seen in film, featuring Michael Fassbender's lead stopping by store to buy some lingerie from Natalie Dormer. The actress plays "The Blonde" in the film, opposite Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz, but outside of that, she can't say anything else.
Milan Records will release the Pemberton's complete score digitally on October 22nd and physically November 11th. "The Counselor" arrives in theaters on October 25th.
