2-Disc Soundtrack For Michel Gondry’s ‘Mood Indigo’ Features Duke Ellington, The Lumineers, Mia Doi Todd & More

2-Disc Soundtrack For Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo' Features Duke Ellington, The Lumineers, Mia Doi Todd & More

Well, here’s something nice. In an era where the music landscape is unpredictable at best, and soundtracks are increasingly pushed to digital-only release, the tunes for Michel Gondry‘s upcoming “Mood Indigo” are getting a nice spread on two discs. Not too shabby. 

Duke Ellington is the main player here, with four songs from the jazz legend making their way into the movie, and the rest is an interesting grab bag. Boz Scagg‘s “Lowdown” and Ray Shanklin‘s “Bertha’s Theme” (which appeared in “Fritz The Cat“) are here, along with The Lumineers‘ massively popular “Ho Hey” and a track by Mia Doi Todd (Gondry directed her video for “Open Your Heart” a couple years back). As for the actual score, it has been composed by Gondry’s former Oui Oui bandmate, Étienne Charry, with Paul McCartney adding his bass on a few tunes, though the reported song by popular French chanteuse France Gall doesn’t seem to have made the cut.

The soundtrack drops on April 22nd in France, with the movie hitting theaters two days later. No domestic details for either just yet. [Film Music Reporter]
