Disney’s Pete’s Dragon Soundtrack Playlist Released


Somehow it escaped my attention until now that Lindsey Stirling will be performing original songs and on the soundtrack for Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. Stirling was propelled to stardom on the power of her amazing violin playing and adventurous YouTube videos. Over the years she’s grown quite a following and progressed a musician. Of course, she’s a big Disney fan, so it’s nice to see her part of this project. Here she is with Daniel Hart, who provides the film’s score, talking about her participation:

Walt Disney Records is set to release Pete’s Dragon original motion picture soundtrack on August 12, 2016. The album features 3 original songs written for the film including the end credit track “Something Wild” by electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling featuring Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. The original score was composed by Daniel Hart (“Tumbledown,” “Comet”). In addition to the lead single “Something Wild” by Lindsey Stirling featuring Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Stirling also performed on the film’s score.

The soundtrack also boasts a newly-recorded version of “Candle On the Water” performed by the critically-acclaimed Okkervil River, fronted by singer-songwriter Will Sheff. The band will release a new album this fall.
