Titanic releases new soundtrack

TO COINCIDE WITH THEATRICAL RELEASE OF TITANIC in 3D

Ivory Music & Video, the exclusive licensee of Sony Music in the Philippines announces the soundtrack release of TITANIC: Anniversary Edition. The release will coincide with the newly re-mastered re-release of TITANIC, the world’s most beloved and acclaimed film, in theaters on April 4, 2012.The theatrical re-release marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail (April 10th).

In commemoration of these events, Ivory Music & Video will release remastered versions of the original TITANIC soundtrack with extensive bonus material. Both feature an unreleased disc of period music recorded for the movie by I Salonisti, plus 4 bonus vintage Titanic luggage stickers. I Salonisti is the 5-piece quintet that appears in the film. Director James Cameron painstakingly researched the music that was played on the ship and hired them to record authentic music from the period – specifically, the music that all bands from the White Star Line would have been required to perform when hired to play as employees of the prestigious cruise fleet. Arranger and music historian/advisor John Altman oversaw the process and was tasked with taking the White Star Line official playlist, arranging and recording those songs for the film. Two of the marquee songs on the disc I Salonisti: Gentlemen, It Has Been a Privilege Playing with You Tonight are “Nearer My God To Thee” which was the last song played by the band as the ship went down, and “Song of Autumn” which does not appear in the movie, but is rumored to be the actual song that the band played as the ship went down.



The music from this blockbuster movie is central to the film and has always been widely embraced by fans. The original TITANIC soundtrack sold over 26 million units worldwide and the BACK TO TITANIC soundtrack sold over 3 million units worldwide.

Of the new releases, composer and conductor James Horner says, “I’m thrilled that Sony Classical is re-releasing the soundtrack album to TITANIC. It is wonderful to know that the original music has retained its magic through all of these years.”

Of the new film version, director James Cameron says, "There's a whole generation that's never seen TITANIC as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen.  And this will be TITANIC as you've never seen it before, digitally re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D.  With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."

The film is released by Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm. Written, directed and produced by Cameron, TITANIC is the second highest grossing movie of all time. It is one of only three films to have received a record 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director; and launched the careers of stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
