The Lobster
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 01 July 2016

Lakeshore Records release the soundtrack for The Lobster. In this highly imaginative, delightfully absurdist comedy from visionary director Yorgos Lanthimos, David is a man who has just been dumped by his wife. To make matters worse, David lives in a society where single people have 45 days to find true love, or else they are turned into the animal of their choice and released into the woods. David is kept at the mysterious "Hotel" while he searches for a new partner, and after several romantic misadventures decides to make a daring escape to abandon this world. He ultimately joins up with a rebel faction known as The Loners, a group founded on a complete rejection of romance. But once there David meets an enigmatic stranger who stirs up unexpected and strong feelings within him...

Anyone who has seen The Lobster will know what a bizarre movie it is. However, the soundtrack is mainly comprised of classical music that you may, or may not, already be familiar with.

The album contains 10 tracks (43 min, 18 sec) of music designed, on the whole, to wash over you. For fans of the movie, this is a beautiful souvenir of the music that accompanies it; for those who haven't seen the film, it still represents an interesting collection of music.
