Michael Price, one of the UK’s most sought after composers (Unforgotten, Sherlock,
Dracula), releases the original soundtrack from director Craig Roberts’ (Submarine, Just
Jim) latest feature Eternal Beauty, starring Sally Hawkins.
The Eternal Beauty soundtrack will be released on vinyl as the 73rd Dinked Edition,
exclusive to the Dinked network of the UK’s best independent record shops.
The 16 track Première edition LP - exclusive to the Dinked network - is a limited edition on blue marbled vinyl and includes a signed and numbered print.
It becomes available to pre-order from October 2nd, coinciding with the cinema release and on demand première of the film. It will also be available exclusively on Bandcamp from the same date, before arriving on all other digital platforms in November.
Recorded and mixed by Andrew Dudman at Abbey Road Studios and The Control Room. Mastered by Oli Morgan at Abbey Road Mastering. Price’s score, as his so often do, serves as a narrator, a character helping to guide us through the true highs and lows of Jane’s (Sally Hawkins) rarely uneventful life. Price’s signature sweeping strings, underpinned by piano and a beautifully restrained use of sound design ensures that whilst the score drives the story forwards it never distracts from that which is unfolding before our eyes.
“A soundtrack that provides the rocket fuel for a story that unzips our understanding of ’normal’ Adrian Bates, Eternal Beauty Producer When Jane (Sally Hawkins) is dumped at the altar she has a breakdown and spirals into a chaotic world, where love (both real and imagined) and family relationships collide with touching and humorous consequences.
The reality we see through Jane’s eyes is vividly different, heightened in the film by the
stylized palette, camera work and intoxicating score - a reality that the film celebrates and treats with dignity, humour and affection.
