Alita: Battle Angel – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Legendary electronic producer Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL) creates another exhilarating score, this time for the upcoming action flick Alita: Battle Angel”.
Fresh from his fantastic breakthrough scores for Deadpool, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Mortal Engines, Holkenborg once again shows his outstanding ability to combine classical forms with groundbreaking electronic sounds.
Aside from his movie scores, Holkenborg is perhaps best known for his 2002 reworking of “A Little Less Conversation”, which was a number one hit in 24 countries. He has also remixed songs by Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Madonna. In 2008, he received a Grammy nomination for his remix of “4 Seconds”.
On his score for Alita: Battle Angel, the track “What’s Your Dream?” embodies his style. With subtle echo effects and a grandiose string-dominated crescendo after the intro, it is simultaneously futuristic and classical. It is emotional and enticing, as a track from a movie score should be.
Though only two songs are currently available, they are enough to whet the appetite. If his past scores are any indication, the soundtrack for Alita: Battle Angel is going to be one exhilarating ride.
