Sony Music is proud to announce the release of the original motion picture soundtrack of The Wolverine, composed by the Oscar-nominated Marco Beltrami, available on July 23, 2013. Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.

Beltrami’s success in writing the soundtracks for mainstream films owes much to his mastery of a big range of orchestral effects, enabling him to produce more interesting sounds than the usual clichés of action and horror music. The music of The Wolverine opens with eerie stillness in “A Walk in the Woods,” then develops in “Threnody for Nagasaki” from growling strings to a dramatic crescendo. Moods of excitement and tension begin in the track “Logan’s Run” with one of Beltrami’s hallmark intense percussion passages. The recurring use of bell sounds hints at Japanese spirituality – combined with themes of rising tension in “The Offer” and “Arriving at the Temple,” or a gentler, harmonious mood in “Two Handed.” The varied instrumentation is evident in the scraped and plucked strings of “Trusting,” while full-on orchestral power is employed for scenes of action and suspense in “The Wolverine” and “Silver Samurai”. Pounding rhythms continue in later numbers such as “Where to?”, but Beltrami brings his soundtrack to a delicately unemphatic conclusion in “Whole Step Haiku”, as a slow theme rises above hollow echoes.
