Amazon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Lorne Balfe
Label: Milan Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 02 July 2021

Milan Records releases Lorne Balfe's original score for The Tomorrow War. In the movie the world is stunned when a group of time travelers arrive from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message: Thirty years in the future mankind is losing a global war against a deadly alien species. The only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians from the present to be transported to the future and join the fight. Among those recruited is high school teacher and family man Dan Forester. Determined to save the world for his young daughter, Dan teams up with a brilliant scientist and his estranged father in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet...

The soundtrack to The Tomorrow War contains an engaging collection of themes. The album contains 20 tracks (1 hr, 15 min, 27 sec) with composer, Lorne Balfe taking tracks and giving them a bleak futuristic feel. It works incredibly well to set the score apart from what we've heard before.

Talking about the score, Balfe said: "On the surface this is an action movie, but what stood out for me when writing the score was the family dynamics between the main characters. Being able to write themes and music around these relationships and people, both as their future and present-day selves was a unique experience. It was a delight to be able to work with Chris [McKay - director] again having previously worked with him on the Lego Batman movies, his creativity and versatility as a director is exceptional."

There are so many intricate and engaging themes here that it should hold your attention for quite some time. It's got action, adventure and a slight epic sheen to it.
