Waxwork Records is thrilled to release Child’s Play (2019) original motion picture soundtrack! Featuring music by EMMY® and BAFTA Award-winning composer Bear McCreary (Godzilla: King Of The Monsters) in a special deluxe double LP vinyl edition. Directed by Lars Klevberg and starring Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, and featuring the new voice of Chucky performed by Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Child’s Play is the 2019 American horror film reboot of the 1988 film of the same title. The plot follows a family that is terrorized by a high tech doll that rejects its programming and becomes self-aware.
Composer Bear McCreary’s music of Child’s Play is carried out with his assembly of a “toy orchestra”. McCreary uses his own voice to create an ominous “kids choir” and collaborates closely with legendary actor Mark Hamill who sings the track for the film, The Buddi Song. Inspired by Chucky’s toy origins, McCreary challenges himself by composing a score solely with toys and handheld instruments, completely avoiding traditional orchestra. Toy pianos, slinkies, xylophones, rattles, ukuleles, accordions, kazoos, hurdy gurdies, and more are married with a variety of synthesizers, percussion, violin, viola, cello, and bass to create a wholly original, terrifying, and dynamic score.
Album features include the complete film music by Bear McCreary, double 180 gram “Chucky’s Eyes” (Blue and Red) colored vinyl, artwork by Phantom City Creative, composer liner notes, a 12”x12” insert, and deluxe packaging.
Child’s Play vinyl soundtrack is available to pre-order from waxworkrecords.com; expected to ship August 2019!
