Preview 6 Minutes of Thomas Newman’s Score for ‘Skyfall’


One thing I think many of us have been waiting for is the chance to hear what Thomas Newman has put together for the score for Skyfall. Newman, a frequent collaborator with director Sam Mendes, has been nominated for an Oscar ten times including scores for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (a personal favorite), Pixar titles including WALL-E and Finding Nemo and scores for Mendes’ films including Road to Perdition, Jarhead and American Beauty.

I have several of Newman’s scores in my iTunes collection and now, via the YouTube embed to the right, we get a chance to listen to a six-minute preview of his latest and hear what he has put together for the 23rd James Bond adventure.

A track-listing for the score, which will be available on November 6 and can be [amazon asin=”B009FBX5M0″ text=”pre-ordered here”], also recently came online via Film Music Reporter and lists the following 30 tracks and run times for each.
