Nicholas Britell If Beale Street Could Talk: Soundtrack 180g Vinyl 2LP

A woman in Harlem desperately scrambles to prove her fiancé innocent of a crime while carrying their first child. Written and directed by Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), based on the acclaimed novel by James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk stars KiKi Layne, Stephan James, and Regina King to go along with a stunning soundtrack by Nicholas Britell presented here on 180g 2LP.

"Together, we explored a sonic landscape filled with brass and strings, while also venturing into some quite extreme experimentation," Britell said of his collaboration with Jenkins. "I'm always fascinated by the mysteries of scoring a film. As Barry and I worked together, we discovered certain sounds which we felt deeply resonated with the story. I'm so honored to have been a part of this film and to have had the opportunity to work with Barry again."

"Working with Nick on the score for If Beale Street Could Talk was a wonderful continuation of the process we began on Moonlight," adds Jenkins. "In channeling the voices of James Baldwin, our main character Tish and the rich array of souls she encounters and the moods she themes she charts, we arrived at the sound that I feel truly honors the wonderful text Baldwin gifted us while creating a distinct soundscape for this literary adaptation."

"Composer Nicholas Britell's insinuating, supple music (a film highlight of 2018) seems to be setting the scene for a momentous occasion." - Chicago Tribune

"The scenes come alive even more thanks to Nicholas Britell's gorgeous score, laden with sweeping strings and brass melodies." - USA Today

"Nicholas Britell composed the score, which is hauntingly and fittingly exquisite." - Wall Street Journal

"Jenkins has made an absolutely gorgeous movie, from his vibrant color palette of saturated primary hues and pastels to Nicholas Britell's mournful, poetic score." - Washington Post

"Britell uses exquisite cellos, and melancholy, moody trumpets to create a beautiful hybrid haze of classical music and jazz." - The Playlist

"The score for 'If Beale Street Could Talk' makes it that much easier to trust in the love that takes this movie all the way." - IndieWire
