Scott Walker

(Prog) Scott Walker's score for feature film The Childhood Of The Leader will be released on August 19. It's the singer-songwriter's first original soundtrack since his work for 1999 film Pola X.

Directed by Brady Corbet, The Childhood Of A Leader is partly inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre's short story of the same name - a tense psychological drama tracing the formative years of a young boy and set against the backdrop of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference that led to the establishment of the Treaty Of Versailles.

Walker, who has previously worked with American outfit Sunn O))), once again teams up with longtime collaborators, co-producer Peter Walsh and musical director Mark Warman, with the latter conducting an orchestra comprised of 46 string players and a 16-piece brass section for the studio recording.
