Bobby Tunes

(PR) The assassination of Senator Robert Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles in June 1968 - as envisioned by director/screenwriter Emilio Estevez in the upcoming movie BOBBY, Island Def Jam will release the original motion picture soundtrack album showcasing music by the premiere artists of the 1960s. The movie will open in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, November 17th, and the album will arrive in stores the following Tuesday, November 21st. The movie will then have its wide release to more than 1,500 screens on Thanksgiving Day, November 23rd.

Heralding the soundtrack album - and the movie - is "Never Gonna Break My Faith," a newly recorded single by Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige, co-written and co-produced by Bryan Adams. The song is currently heard on BOBBY's theatrical trailer. After an introductory excerpt from a speech by RFK, the BOBBY soundtrack album opens with "Never Gonna Break My Faith," followed by nearly a dozen touchstones from the era: "Tracks Of My Tears" (Smokey Robinson & the Miracles), "Come See About Me" (the Supremes), "Function At The Junction" (Shorty Long), "I Was Made To Love Her" (Stevie Wonder), "Tuesday Afternoon" (Moody Blues), "Black Is Black" (Los Bravos), "Ain't That Peculiar" (Marvin Gaye), "Baby I Love You" (Aretha Franklin), "Grazing In The Grass" (Hugh Masekela), "Louie Louie" (newly-recorded by Demi Moore for her role in the film), and "The Sound Of Silence" (Simon & Garfunkel). The album also includes two tracks of award-winning composer Mark Isham's original score, the last of which underpins RFK's "Mindless Menace Of Violence" speech.
