An interesting album arrangement given the 1994 album arranged the tracks into suites and it seems that's not happening here (and we all know how much hans loves his suites). Seems like it's going to hit every major note that the previous Legacy set does and then some.Does this mean that He Lives In You and Mbube are not new recordings, or at least not entirely new recordings?do you have Informations about a limited edition ?<br>(like BR2049, interstellar,...)it's a complete new recording1.      “Circle of Life”/“Nants’ Ingonyama” – Performed by Lindiwe Mkhize; African vocals performed by Lebo M; written and composed by Elton John and Tim Rice; “Nants’ Ingonyama” written by Lebohang Morake and Hans Zimmer; produced by Hans Zimmer; vocals produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>2.      “Life’s Not Fair” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>3.      “Rafiki’s Fireflies” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>4.      “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” – Performed by JD McCrary, Shahadi Wright Joseph and John Oliver; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>5.      “Elephant Graveyard” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>6.      “Be Prepared” (2019 Version) – Performed by Chiwetel Ejiofor; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Hans Zimmer and David Fleming<br><br>7.      “Stampede” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>8.      “Scar Takes the Throne” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>9.      “Hakuna Matata” – Performed by Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen, JD McCrary and Donald Glover; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>10.  “Simba is Alive!” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>11.  “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” – Performed by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Luigi Creatore, Hugo Peretti, George David Weiss and Solomon Linda; produced by Pharrell Williams<br><br>12.  “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” – Performed by Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>13.  “Reflections of Mufasa” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>14.  TBA<br><br>15.  “Battle for Pride Rock” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>16.  “Remember” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>17.  “Never Too Late” – Performed by Elton John; African vocal and choir arrangements created and produced by Lebo M; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Greg Kurstin; additional production by Elton John and Matt Still<br><br>18.  “He Lives in You” – Performed by Lebo M; written by Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin and Lebohang Morake; produced by Lebo M and Mark Mancina<br><br>19.  “Mbube” – Performed by Lebo M; African vocal and choir arrangements created and produced by Lebo M; written by Solomon Linda; produced by Pharrell Williams
The movie is like 30 minutes longer than the original so I don't think it can be the same all the way through.Hybrid did Hans do everything the same? or is there any difference in this score? Yes or no :DProbably not.Hybrid, I counted only 9 tracks from Zimmer. Is this the complete score or will there be a separate album with more music?Incredible work !, I admire you Hans Zimmer !.<br>Jaime Altozano (Youtuber music), he had a talk with you, and talked about interstellar music. I meet you more, thanks to his videos :)
The most colorful score by Ramin! I dig it!This is not a best soundtrack of Hans, but the theme "Gap" and the first two minutes for me are very good, no good....excellent.no :(Michael, that's my impression with some Zimmer scores: he composes a suite with the themes, hands the rest to his collaborators and supervise the work. But at the end the cue sheets will give us the information.Lorne did the great majority of the onscreen cues. Hans spent most of his time on this score writing the Moriarty Suite (which is longer than on album and has a few versions).
Is it possible to get full credit list for this score? I'll love to know which tracks Lorne worked in.Why soundtrack albums are made? Because most of the times a well edited album is a much better listening experience than the music as heard in the film, complete and chronological. At least  9 out of 10 cases I prefer to listen a well edited album. There are very few cases when a complete album is needed, in my opinion. The other thing is: I only have about 40-60 minutes patience for an album listen.<br>In Hans' case it's different sometimes because I really enjoy his suites and experiments.@iamtommie44<br><br>may i compare with mainstream music for a minute here. albums are important because putting one together is an art form on its own. the best albums are often not the ones with only the good tracks. but of course there are also those you buy because of track #2 or #3<br><br>in hiphop for example, mixtapes are a big thing. they seem like a freer album form. a way for artists to test new ideas and project directions. based on the response, those ideas would show up in albums. it's a nice way of testing things (or us lol) since our taste, especially in music, changes often. sometimes these artists want to see what works and what doesn't. i wouldn't mind buying experimental stuff from my favorite composers to be honest.<br><br>but anyways, dundirk is a very good album if you ask me. it's one of those that i can listen to in a loop and not get tired of. the tracks carry you along the journey. and by the time you reach the end of the last track, it loops right back into the first one...I have higher hopes for that than his normal work, he seems to do better work when not scoring big blockbuster action. (see The Mountain Between Us, one of his best scores)Such an incredible theme! Thank you Hans. When will it be available to buy?

Martin Tillman is scoring a new movie called A bell for Ursli! I'm very glad that he gets to do some composing of his own these days! He is such a great musician! He plays the cello in most of Zimmer's and HGW's scores if you don't know who he is:P

Amazing!!! compliments, as usual, great composition.!

I can't quite place why, but Celebrate the Oscars reminds me of John Williams. Great and uplifting track--and starts out with a classic Zimmerish BRAAAAAAM. :)


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:51:58
Oddly enough I just bought it


Mike2013-09-17 01:52:45
Good stuff, isn't it?


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:54:17
The BRAAAAAM! is awesome


Mike2013-09-17 01:55:26
The main melody resembles the heroic Superman theme from Man of Steel (think the beginning of "Flight").


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:58:04
Huh I'm not hearing that.


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:59:49
and i'm not saying that in a bad way


Mike2013-09-17 02:01:01
Listen to 0:48-1:10 in Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 0:31-1:10 or so in Flight.


Mike2013-09-17 02:01:58
Maybe it's just me.


Mike2013-09-17 02:05:04
Even better idea: listen to that same section of Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 14:26-15:20 in "Man of Steel (Hans' Original Sketchbook)", and tell me if you notice it there.


MacArthur2013-09-17 02:06:06
Yes now I got you it's a similar chord progression


MacArthur2013-09-17 02:08:36
Different Orchestrations but similar chord progression not exactly the same but similar.


Mike2013-09-17 02:11:24
Both quite good though. I wouldn't have known when this came out to expect something similar for Superman. lol. And speaking of Zimmer superhero music, I find it funny that Zimmer hasn't mentioned his involvement with Spider-Man.


MacArthur2013-09-17 03:07:11
Yeah good point but he also has 4 more movies before that one comes out

So the Oscars have been broadcasted worldwide, yet this music can be only bought by US citizens.

What's the reason? It's not like there will be any development on German TV/Music market that forces them to withhold sales in Germany for any number of weeks or months. There is NO reason. I really enjoyed and appreciated the music, it even caused goosebumps and tears, yet I cannot pay those f*in $5.99 (or even make that Euros) to further enjoy and appreciate it. Legally! At least, with a CD, I could order it on Amazon US and have it shipped over here or something.

THIS is what forces people all over the world into piracy, because we would LOVE to pay for good stuff, but are just kept away from getting it! REALLY SUCKS! Especially having in mind where Hans Zimmer comes from - he has tons of fans in Germany!!!

*** EDITED BY WEBMASTERS : This topic is about the fact this score is only available on the american itunes store, and prevent other country to download it ****
*** Priere de rédiger en anglais la prochaine fois ***
Alors, là! Bon, désolé, j'écris en français. Trop énervé pour réfléchir anglais ce matin!!

Je me pointe sur l'iTunes tranquillement pour acheter la piste faite par Hans. Que se passe-t-il? "Votre compte ne peut acheter des produits sur l'iStore américain".

Et apr&#232;s, on va dire qu'Internet est rempli de pirates...
Bouh!! Honte &#224; eux!

Cela dit, quelle magnifique piste créée par Zimmer. Un peu répétitive mais épique, glorieuse. Tout ce que j'aime de sa musique (qui d'ailleurs est souvent tr&#232;s sombre, plus technique ces derni&#232;res années).

Cela fait plaisir de retrouver un th&#232;me dans la veine de "Backdraft", "Spirit" et un soupçon de "The Holiday" également.

I'm a french speaking too, but I want to avoid 3 *XXXX reply :) I completely agree with you Hale, this is a very refreshing-Zimmer sound, it made me so happy when I heard this track yesterday morning! Just Hope "Dark Knight Rises" will not fall too deep into "Dark Knight" or "Inception" sounds, which for me is a disappointing tendency of Zimmer sound these last years...
