It's about time the Oscar-winning film of last year had its original soundtrack released. On June 23, we'll finally be able to get our hands on physical copies of Moonlight's OST via Invada Records. The album features the original score by Nicholas Britell.

“Working with Barry on MOONLIGHT was a phenomenal experience," Britell stated. "He has an immediate instinct about how music works with picture. We would sit in my studio, watching scenes from the film, and experimenting with different possibilities.” Britell continued, “This is one of my favorite things to do - exploring musical textures, sounds, and ideas live against picture. When an idea works, you see how it can change perceptions of a scene. You really feel it."

"I would bend tracks, taking cellos and turning them into strange bass-like instruments, taking pianos and violins and altering them into a totally new shape," he continues. "After watching the early cuts of the film, the first word that came to my mind was ‘poetry.’ There is a true poetry to the way Barry created this film. There is beauty, intimacy, tenderness, and sensitivity. Chiron’s Theme attempts to capture some of these feelings musically."
