Press Release from La-La Land:
La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the world premiere release of Alan Parker (JAWS 3D, TO BE THE BEST) and Björn Isfält’s (MY LIFE AS A DOG) original score to the acclaimed 1993 big-screen drama WHAT’S EATING GILBERT GRAPE, starring Johnny Depp, Mary Steenburgen and Leonardo DiCaprio, and directed by Lasse Hallström.
Finally available for the first time in any format, the original score to this beloved film is a beautiful and joyful musical tapestry that perfectly reflects the movie’s warmth and the dramatic complexity of its colorful and soulful characters. Building upon, and expanding beyond, Isfält’s initial thematic material, Parker’s work is an emotional delight with an acoustic emphasis. Included in this presentation as well, is Isfält’s original unused score – also a wonderous listen.
Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this limited edition CD release of 1000 units features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Daniel Schweiger, with new comments by Alan Parker, and sharp art design by Goldwasser.
