Fantastic Mr. Fox

Soundtrack: Fantastic Mr. Fox

ABKCO Records presents the soundtrack to Wes Anderson's first animated feature FANTASTIC MR. FOX, based on the beloved Roald Dahl book. Dahl is probably best known in the U.S. for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Academy Award nominee Anderson is best known for his film's “Rushmore”, “The Royal Tenebaums” and “The Darjeeling Limited”. FANTASTIC MR. FOX makes its Atlantic-crossing aboard a magical soundtrack featuring an unforgettable score by award-winning composer Alexandre Desplat, as well as vintage folk, jazz, Pop and rock tracks hand-picked by Wes Anderson and music supervisor Randall Poster. Standouts include an unreleased track by former Pulp founder and frontman, Jarvis Cocker and a classic Rolling Stones track. The film's characters are voiced by an array of Hollywood's finest: George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Jarvis Cocker and Adrien Brody, among others. Even director/producer Wes Anderson managed to land himself a quick cameo as the voice of Weasel, and one for celebrity chef Mario Batali as Rabbit! As in all things Wes Anderson, music plays a major role in the telling of the tale, or "TAIL" as it recounts the story and the music of FANTASTIC MR. FOX!

ABKCO Records is also proud to present the digital release of additional music from the Original Score by award-winning composer Alexandre Desplat. Desplat received a Best Original Score nomination for the 82nd ACADEMY® AWARDS.
