Sony Classical announces the release of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of Skyfall on November 6, 2012, consisting of original music written by leading film composer Thomas Newman.
From Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment, the film is the 23rd James Bond adventure and coincides with the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise.
Meanwhile, Best Of Bond… James Bond features the memorable theme songs from all 22 official Bond films and is available on CD and digitally, and as a deluxe, “50 Years – 50 Tracks” 2CD and digital collection. (Read: Now Releasing: Best of Bond… James Bond)

In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
The film is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan.
Composer Thomas Newman’s expressive musical style fits perfectly with the humor and slickness of a Bond movie, believes Sony.
His expressive range goes from thunderous and dramatic for the many action sequences to broodingly atmospheric for scenes in which the dark side of the story, marked by mistrust and fear of betrayal, is at the forefront.
With its big orchestral effects, this music is equal to the spectacular events that the movie portrays, says Sony.
“Skyfall,” the movie, will be released on Oct. 26, 2012 in the UK and on Nov. 9, 2012 in the U.S.
