Scott Walker is releasing his orchestral soundtrack to Brady Corbet's feature film The Childhood of A Leader on Friday August 19, via 4AD. It will be his first OST work since Pola X in 1999. Within the 18-track opus, Walker has enlisted Peter Walsh (co-producer) and Mark Warman (musical director), who conducted an orchestra comprised of 46 string players and 16 brass for the studio recording. Find the full tracklist below.

The Childhood of A Leader was partly inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre's short story of the same name, and is a tense psychological drama about a young boy during 1919's Paris Peace Conference that led to the establishment of the Treaty of Versailles.
