Listen To Ramin Djawadi’s “The Great Wall” Score

greatwall

The “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” composer has written the score for the Matt Damon-starring action movie, set to be released in February 2017.  James Horner was originally intended to score the movie that follows an elite force of soldiers as they make a heroic stand atop the Great Wall of China against a horde of monsters that appear every 60 years. Willem Dafoe and Andy Lau also star in the film.

Djawadi has now officially published a preview track of his upcoming score that will receive an album release by Milan Records on January 6, 2017. The vinyl version is now up for pre-order on Amazon.com (release: late March 2017):

In an interview with Billboard, Ramin Djawadi talks about the preview track, “Nameless Order”, which serves as the album’s opening cue:

“Zhang Yimou and I had discussed the use of a female choir that would sing a 2000 year old Chinese poem. The result is a heroic theme that blends western and eastern musical elements.”
