Back Lot Music to release ‘Furious 7 Original Motion Picture Score’ March 31st

Back Lot Music will release the score soundtrack for Furious 7, Universal Pictures’ upcoming action-thriller directed by James Wan and starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson on March 31st, it has been announced. The Furious 7 Original Motion Picture Score features new music by award-winning composer Brian Tyler. Furious 7 hits theaters nation-wide on April 3rd.

Tyler is a composer and conductor of more than 70 films and won Film Composer of the Year at the 2014 Cue Awards. He has been the composer for three previous films in the Fast & Furious franchise, having scored the box-office hits Fast Five, Fast & Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift for director Justin Lin. In 2010, Tyler arranged and conducted Jerry Goldsmiths’s film logo music for Universal Pictures and composed a theme for the 100-year anniversary of the studio, making him a valuable part of the Universal family.

Discussing his creation of the score for Furious 7, Tyler commented: “It was a pleasure to collaborate with James [Wan] on Furious 7, as he wanted the emotion of the themes to be the primary focus. The music uses modern recording techniques, vintage modular synthesizers, mashed-up beats, drums and tweaked remix elements along with classic film scoring traditions including full orchestra, piano, voice and classical guitar. I am so proud of the movie, and I dedicate the score to the memory of Paul Walker and all the joy he brought.”

In describing Tyler’s score for Furious 7, Wan remarked, “Brian’s amazing score gave this movie life. He did an incredible job of crafting an electrifying score for the bombastic action moments, one that is balanced by the beautiful and emotional themes of the characters that underline the heart of this movie.”

Tyler won his first World Soundtrack Award in 2002 for Best New Film Composer of the Year. He has received three Emmy Award nominations, 13 BMI Music Awards, five ASCAP Music Awards, and recently won 12 Goldspirit Awards, including Composer of the Year. In addition, he was nominated for a 2014 BAFTA Games Award and was inducted into the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2010.

In Furious 7, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Jordana Brewster return to form a furious team of seven family members united in purpose. They are joined by Fast fan favorites Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black, as well as new additions to the ensemble including Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Ronda Rousey and Tony Jaa.

With Furious 7, this crew heads across the globe for one last ride together in their most gravity-defying and emotional adventure to date. And as they form a tighter band than ever: The Furious 7—Dom, Brian, Hobbs, Letty, Roman, Tej and Mia—they will face their greatest threat yet in places as far away as Abu Dhabi and Azerbaijan…and as familiar as the streets they call home. www.furious7.com
