Listen to two songs from Justin Hurwitz’s First Man score
Ahead of the film’s theatrical release next week, Entertainment Weekly has dropped the first two songs from Academy Award winner Justin Hurwitz’s First Man soundtrack which are titled “The Landing” and “Quarantine.” Listen to both tracks using the players below!
The first track is a combination of Hurtwitz’s two main themes for the score which are described as a repetitive, cycling riff and a more sweeping melody. While the second track, is used towards the end of the film and serves as the background music for when Armstrong has returned to Earth.
Director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) and Gosling (Blade Runner 2049) are teaming up again following the smashing success of the 2016 musical La La Land for the film based on James Hansen’s biography “First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong.” Written by Academy Award winner Josh Singer (Spotlight), the First Man movie will be produced by Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars) through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner, alongside Chazelle. Isaac Klausner (The Fault in Our Stars) will executive produce.
The film features an ensemble cast that includes Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy as Janet Shearon, Armstrong’s first wife, Corey Stoll (The Strain) as Buzz Aldrin, Kyle Chandler (Game Night) as Deke Slayton, Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Ed White, Shea Wigham (Kong: Skull Island) as Gus Grissom, Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) as David Scott, Brian d’Arcy James (13 Reasons Why) as Joseph A. Walker, Pablo Schreiber (Den of Thieves) as Jim Lovell, as well as Patrick Fugit (Outcast), Cory Michael Smith (Gotham), Lukas Haas (The Revenant) and Christopher Abbott (The Sinner).
First Man is set to land in theaters on October 12.
