(March 6 – New York) Sony Music will be releasing the original motion picture soundtrack for the latest and soon-to-be released movie adaption of Tomb Raider game series. To be published digitally and on CD, the movie’s soundtrack was done by Dutch composer Tom Holkenborg, a.k.a. Junkie XL, who has worked under legendary composer Hans Zimmer and previously worked on films such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Deadpool.

I am really pleased that Director Roar Uthaug invited me to be part of his re-imagining of Lara Croft and Tomb Raider. Lara is such a strong female protagonist and Roar and Alicia’s vision for her feels very fresh, raw and human, but also really out-there. It was a joy to be given the chance to approach this score from a really edgy place. – Tom Holkenborg, composer

The movie, which releases on March 16th, is the latest film adaption of the Tomb Raider series, which will be basing its story around the 2013 video game of the same name. Previously the Tomb Raider games were translated to film staring Angelina Jolie and were loosely based on the original set of games in the series and composed by Graeme Revell (Titan A.E., The Crow). For this new movie, Holkenborg hopes to immerse the watcher in the environment.

“We spend a lot of time on the ‘island‘ in the movie. It is otherworldly and wild, and I wanted to get people out of their comfort zones with some eerie crescendo moments. I spent months having custom pacific drums built, which I played myself to create insane adrenaline inducing rhythms. I also distorted our orchestral recordings, which yielded some unsettling qualities within the score. I want to thank Director Roar Uthaug for letting me push the envelope on this project. It was a lot of fun.

Produced by Sony Music, the 14 track album Tomb Raider Original Motion Picture Soundtrack releases today on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and Spotify.
