Details are starting to squeak by in the lead-up to the June 22nd launch of Disney/Pixar's newest bauble, "Brave." The first details of the "Brave" soundtrack (it will be released physically, unlike "Toy Story 3" and "Up" which were exclusively digital downloads) have emerged from Amazon (via UpcomingPixar), and it looks like the disc is set to include tracks featuring Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis, a song featuring Birdy along with indie darlings Mumford & Sons (presumably over the closing credits) and a pair of songs featuring members of the cast (Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson, most notably). The rest of the tracks are orchestral cues from Patrick Doyle's score.

Details are starting to squeak by in the lead-up to the June 22nd launch of Disney/Pixar's newest bauble, "Brave." The first details of the "Brave" soundtrack (it will be released physically, unlike "Toy Story 3" and "Up," which were exclusively digital downloads) have emerged from Amazon (via UpcomingPixar), and it looks like the disc is set to include tracks featuring Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis, a song featuring Birdy along with indie darlings Mumford & Sons (presumably over the closing credits) and a pair of songs featuring members of the cast (Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson, most notably). The rest of the tracks are orchestral cues from Patrick Doyle's score.

This is Doyle's first score for Pixar, and more to the point is the first Pixar score not composed by Thomas Newman, Randy Newman or Michael Giacchino. Doyle did a pretty bang-up job for his dark Disney overlords last summer on Marvel's "Thor," which is probably what helped him secure the gig. A lot of the song titles could be considered spoilery, so we'll tread lightly, but the song that Billy Connolly sings is about the movie's mythical bear (remember the movie was originally, more creatively called "The Bear and the Bow"), so we're guessing this will be some kind of musical number where Connolly's character (King Fergus) lays out the stakes for our young heroine. 

And speaking of the king, he takes center stage in one of two new photos released from the film (courtesy of SlashFilm). In the first, it showcases leading lady Princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald) sparring jovially with her king father, while her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), looks on. The second still shows the local townspeople tying up the once-titular bear and Merida defending it. This undoubtedly comes from the second part of the movie, after Merida has run away from the kingdom and made a dark deal with a very witchy woman (Julie Walters), and we actually know surprisingly little about the film's plot, so we'll stay away from guessing.

All will be revealed when "Brave" opens on June 22nd. The soundtrack hits a few days before on June 19th.
