Whether you have a newborn to entertain, or a carrousel or elevator (or perhaps anger management class) to program music for, three albums to be released in the upcoming weeks have got your Disney needs filled.
Releasing on November 27, Japan’s Luxury Orgel’s Disney Selection Vol. 1 from label Noisix is the first of the three to offer their melodic spins on some Disney classics. After taking on J-Pop and Studio Ghibli films, Luxury Orgel now turns to Disney classic films and theme park attractions for its inspiration. The tunes are short, however, because they’re meant primarily to serve as ringtones for smartphones.
The Walt Disney Studios updated its award site earlier today and added the full recording to ‘Let It Go’ from the original motion picture soundtrack (available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes) as it is performed in the film by Elsa (Idina Menzel).
It can be found at the bottom of the Frozen music page, which is also intended to highlight the score, composed by Christophe Becke (only the song by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez — which Disney hopes to score recognition for best song — appears to be currently available, however). It’s been posted to their site in OGG format.
Walt Disney Studios UK (via Walt Disney Records) has released an extended clip from Disney’s upcoming film, Frozen (November 27, 2013), which features the full version of the ‘In Summer’ sequence as performed by Olaf in which the snowman ponders how wonderful his life might be during the hottest months of the year. The song — performed here by Josh Gad as Olaf — was written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and can be found on the original motion picture soundtrack (available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes).
Thanks to a pre-order listing on iTunes, we now have the complete track list for the double-album original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks as composed by Thomas Newman (also available via Amazon). The soundtrack is scheduled to be released on December 10, 2013, just ahead of the film’s limited release on December 13, followed by its wide release on December 20, 2013.
Note: This is a review of the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen. Reviews for the film are under embargo until later this month.
On November 25, Walt Disney Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen in both single disc and 2-disc deluxe formats (available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes), the latter of which features demos of songs that didn’t make it into to the film for various reasons (25 were written with just eight plus a reprise making the final cut). In addition to the songs written by the [married] songwriting team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the soundtrack features a score by Christophe Beck and orchestration and arrangements by Dave Metzger. With a pedigree such as this, it’s a natural expectation for the soundtrack to exceed, but frankly expectations are greatly exceeded in what can easily be seen as Disney’s best musical since Beauty and the Beast, and in some ways, even better.
Just ahead of its national debut on ‘Good Morning America’ this morning, the music video for ‘Let It Go’ from Disney’s Frozen as performed by Demi Lovato has been released on YouTube. You can find it embedded below.
On the heels of the company’s 90th anniversary, Walt Disney Records will release a boxed set titled ‘Disney Classics’ on November 11, 2013. A CD version is available for pre-order from Amazon while a download only version is available for pre-order from iTunes.
The four-disc retrospective will highlight just a small portion of Disney’s epic role in the history of music in the realms of cinema, television, theme parks and more.
According to the description posted earlier this morning on Amazon, the discs are broken up as follows. Also available on Amazon is a video from Walt Disney Record’s Randy Thornton, introducing the collection.
Following the announcement (and release) of Demi Lovato’s recording of ‘Let It Go’ for the original motion picture soundtrack of Disney’s Frozen from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney has published the full track list via iTunes which has now made it available for pre-order alongside other e-tailers such as Amazon.com (who is listing it in CD format). Lovato’s single has also been released as of today and is available digitally from both iTunes and Amazon. The music video for ‘Let it Go’ as performed by Lovato will debut exclusively on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ on November 1.
