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?

As an accomplished composer/musician/performer, I feel compelled to enter a comment. I saw “Matchstick Men” shortly after it was released on DVD. 2004, I think. And I write this as an individual whose brain has cataloged a SURPLUS of music over many years.

I remember distinctly watching the "making of matchstick men" where Ridley Scott gave Hans such a hard time about the score. And again, as someone who has such a catalog of music in the brain, I have found myself humming or whistling "THIS" score over and over in the last 4 years. With no likely end in sight. It's catchy. It's contagious. And it's my opinion. I even caved and got some ring tones. (Shocked all my colleagues.) I’m more curious to what the rejected scores sounded like. Maybe he used them for other films. Take that Mr. Scott!

Since, I have been more aware of Mr. Zimmer's works over the last 4 years and now I have a clearer understanding of why some of my favorite films (before and since “Matchstick Men”) are some of my favorite films, i.e. “Mission Impossible II” & “Gladiator”. Answer – “Zimmer scores”. And really, if you take away the score, "Matchstick Men" as a film, is average at its best. The score, is what makes this film. Period!! Maybe that's why Ridley pushed Hans like he did?

It’s no wonder that someone would create a web site of this like. As well, he is now someone I would like to converse and/or collaborate before I go to the other side. John Williams, take a vacation. There’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is Hans!!

Hi everyone! I've got this question: some days ago I was listening to this score and I realised that the first part of track "Weird Is Good" has a particular style, something I've only heard in Gotan Project's songs: so, Is that an omage by Hans Zimmer to this fantastic (IMHO) group?

thanks

bye

Hmm... the only thing track 8 (Mines) makes me think about is Journey to the Line, from The Thin Red Line. Man, how obvious is it which track was the temp-score?!?

ABC reply Replies: 0 || 2005-08-27 00:00:00
I think the reason why Track 8 sounds like Journey to the Line is because it should sound like Journey to the Line --)

track 8 is what made the film what it is.
