Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom Soundtrack: Check Out the Tracklist and a Piece of the Score


A new Wes Anderson film almost always means three things: Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and a solid soundtrack. And yes, all three of those things are true about Moonrise Kingdom, Anderson’s latest film, which hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles May 25, with a wider release in June.

Here’s the description from the film’s website: “Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness.” It also stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton.

The soundtrack is out May 22 via ABKCO and available for pre-order on Amazon. It features music by Hank Williams, Françoise Hardy, Leonard Bernstein, and Benjamin Britten, as well as a new suite by Alexandre Desplat, who worked with Anderson on his last film, Fantastic Mr. Fox. also, check out the tracklist and film trailer below.
