Soundtrack Details For Hans Zimmer’s ‘Interstellar’ Revealed

Soundtrack Details For Hans Zimmer's 'Interstellar' Revealed

“I said, ‘I am going to give you an envelope with a letter in it. One page. It’s going to tell you the fable at the center of the story. You work for one day, then play me what you have written.’ He was up for it,” That’s what Christopher Nolan told EW about the challenge he gave composer Hans Zimmer for “Interstellar” when he hired him before a script was ready. “And it was perfect. He gave me the heart of the movie.”

And with reviews now rolling in for Nolan’s film (read ours right here), awards prognostication site Gold Derby predicts that Zimmer’s work on the movie will win him an Oscar for Best Score. We’ll see, but certainly Zimmer’s work on Nolan’s films has been among his most memorable, and “Interstellar” is one we’re keen to check out, even if James Rocchi called it “all bombast and blunders.”

The soundtrack will drop on November 18th in three flavors: a Star Wheel Constellation Chart Digipak with 16 tracks, Digital Deluxe Album with 23 tracks, and The Illuminated Star Projection Edition in special illuminated star projection packaging, 2 CDs featuring 28 tracks, including 30 minutes of music unavailable anywhere else. Guess which you one will want to buy?
