Acclaimed composer James Newton Howard (The Dark Knight, Michael Clayton) brings us back to Panem for Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt.2. Howard’s score is an immersive combination of arrangements both panoramic (the brassy bombast of “Rebels Attack”) and intimate (the spare and haunting, violiin-led “Your Favorite Color Is Green”) that culminates with Jennifer Lawrence’s gorgeous rendition of “Deep In The Meadow (Lullaby)”. Lyrics by Suzanne Collins, Music by T Bone Burnett and Notable’s own, Simone Burnett. Available today from Republic Records.
“On the album you can hear the rustling of paper, the measured intake of breath, and you get the real sense that these songs are truly meaningful”.
