‘Brave’ Soundtrack to be Released on CD in June; Now Available for Pre-Order
The original motion picture soundtrack to Disney/Pixar’s Brave will be released on June 19, 2012, just three days ahead of the film’s release, according to Amazon. While it’s known that Patrick Doyle has assumed the position of composer for the film’s soundtrack, little else is known regarding what else may be featured on the soundtrack in the way of additional music. According to the film’s article on Wikipedia, the soundtrack will feature a song performed by Julie Fowlis, but the quoted source only mentions that one of her songs was used in the television ad for the film, not that it would necessarily be included on the soundtrack itself (the song used has already been released).
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.
Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
