MARVEL’S BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER - ORIGINAL SCORE 2XLP
An absolute triumph of film music, Grammy®-winning Ludwig Göransson worked tirelessly for years on his follow up to the gargantuan achievement that was his Academy Award®-winning original score for the first film, traveling to Senegal, Lagos, Mexico and collaborating with talented artists from each region to authentically capture instruments and vocalists to craft the masterful sonic landscape that comprises the battle between the underwater Talokan and the country of Wakanda.
The iconic “T'Challa” theme is still present, but this score is anchored by Ludwig's truly inspired new theme for Shuri, a piercing melodic synth with a haunted melody that, much like the character in the film, goes through a journey to find itself in the shadow of grief. The music of the Talokan is lush and powerful in its own right, with its centerpiece, “Con La Brisa” featuring vocals by Foudeqush, being a standout in an album full of masterpieces. There are a few other song/score hybrids - featuring Toby and Fat Nwigwe, Vivir Quintana - something that Ludwig has been proudly incorporating into his releases since his score album for Creed.
Pressed on two 180 gram color vinyl discs (also available on 180 gram black vinyl) and featuring all new artwork by artist Mateus Manhanini, this release will be available for pre-order beginning April 26th at MondoShop.com and in record stores later this summer.
