Composer Elliot Goldenthal Will Make His Directorial Debut Shooting A Video For 'O Mistress Mine'
While we didn't particularly care for Julie Taymor's latest visually sizzling take on Shakespeare, "The Tempest," the forthcoming soundtrack is certainly piquing our interest.
The film was scored by Elliot Goldenthal, and little did we know that Portishead's chanteuse, Beth Gibbons, appears on the closing track "Prospera's Code." You can listen to the track, as well as the rest of the soundtrack, over on Goldenthal's Facebook page. While we were hanging around there, we also noticed that a couple of days ago, Goldenthal announced he would be making his directorial debut, shooting a video for the soundtrack posting, "It's official: "O Mistress Mine," Elliot Goldenthal's music-video directorial debut, has been granted freedom from the powers that be. Coming soon right here." We presume someone else wrote that and he wasn't referring to himself in the third person. But if he was, that kind of rules too.
"The Tempest" opens in limited release this weekend and the soundtrack is already available digitally with physical copies hitting stores on December 14th. Full tracklisting after the jump. [Ology]
