Max Richter, the acclaimed minimalist composer, has shared a new song taken from the Ad Astra soundtrack.
The film, co-written and directed by James Gray, stars the likes of Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, and Donald Sutherland. Telling the story of an astronaut who goes into space in search of his lost father, Ad Astra is being lined up for major success during awards season following its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival.
Having tapped Richter to compose the film’s score, Gray also recruited Lorne Balfe who later contributed with additional music. Now, ramping up excitement around the film, Richter has shared new song ‘To The Stars’ from the official soundtrack.
“This film has been a major endeavour. It’s a heartfelt project from both Brad and James [Gray, director] – who poured everything into it – and meticulously chipped away at the story over years till they were happy,” the composer said in a statement.
“I have nothing but admiration for this dedication,” he added.
