Just ahead of the premiere of “Welcome to Earth”, a Disney+ original series from National Geographic, Hollywood Records has announced that the Original Series Soundtrack with music by Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning composer Daniel Pemberton (“The Trial of The Chicago 7″, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”) will release on digital platforms on Friday 10th December.
Known for his innovative and exciting scores, Pemberton recently won a Critics Choice Award for Best Original Score for The Rescue and was named Film Composer of the Year in 2021 by both the World Soundtrack Awards and the international film music critics association IFMCA. Pemberton, who has composed music for some of today’s top film luminaries including Ridley Scott, Aaron Sorkin, and Danny Boyle, reteamed with Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky for Welcome to Earth, and had this to say about the project:
“In the same way that in “Welcome to Earth” Will Smith explored some of the most unexpected parts of our planet, I wanted the music to explore some of the most unexpected worlds of sound. The soundtrack had to feel different and unexpected so, like the series itself, you could experience the world in a way you have never seen or heard before. I tried to fuse a vast range for different sounds from all over the globe together – from pulsing electronics to sampled recordings of water, ancient flutes to unusual vocals, the sounds of wildlife with the rhythms of nature – to create a unique sonic palette as rich, visceral and absorbing as the environments Will Smith encounters. I hope that, without even leaving the house, this album can take the listener on their own adventure to some of the most amazing places on this planet. After “One Strange Rock” it’s been fantastic to re-team with Darren Aronofsky and the team at Nutopia to go on another adventure together with “Welcome to Earth.”
“Welcome To Earth” is coming to Disney+ on Wednesday 8th December 2021.
Are you looking forward to this new Disney+ Original?
