Lawless: Original Soundtrack CD 2012
CD- Original soundtrack to the 2012 motion picture. The Lawless soundtrack includes original songs written by Nick Cave for the movie and performances by Country legends Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris along with Grammy Award winner Ralph Stanley (O Brother, Where Art Thou) and Mark Lanegan from Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age. Best known for his work as a frontman of the critically acclaimed rock band, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Nick Cave, along with fellow Bad Seed Warren Ellis, composed the soundtracks for The Proposition, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and The Road.
Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' latest soundtrack offering finds the ex-Grinderman/current Bad Seeds provocateurs providing a typically atmospheric score, while handing over vocal duties to some big names. Cave, who also wrote the screenplay, provides Lawless with a pair of new originals in "Cosmonaut" and "Fire in the Blood," both of which are performed by Emmylou Harris, who also offers up a take on Townes Van Zandt's "Snake Song," while bluegrass pioneer Ralph Stanley turns in a cover of the Velvet Underground's "White Light/White Heat" with the score's house band, the Bootleggers, featuring Mark Lanegan. Willie Nelson also makes an appearance, providing a previously unreleased song in "Midnight Run.", Rovi Details Artist: Lawless Title: Soundtrack Genre: Soundtracks / Showtunes, World Music / International Sub-Genre: Soundtrack, Australian Release Date: 28-Aug-12 Rated: R Attributes: ~ Discs:2 ~ Country:USA Country: USA Label: Sbme/Masterworks ( MBWY ) Product Type: Compact Disc UPC: 8.87255E+11 Configuration: D: CD Track Listing Track # Title 1 Fire and Brimstone-the Bootleggers Feat.
