The Boxtrolls Movie Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD

The quirky creatures known as the Boxtrolls spend their nights dumpster-diving on the streets of Cheesebridge to salvage thrown out or broken materials, which they then employ to build and fix things in their fantastical underground community.

The Boxtrolls – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally and on CD September 23, 2014. A vinyl version of the soundtrack will be released at the end of 2014. You can pre-order the CD so you can enjoy the music before the film release.

The Boxtrolls is the first animated feature that Oscar® winner Dario Marianelli has scored, and he began his work notably early in the production process.
“That was a huge benefit for us,” said The Boxtrolls co-director Graham Annable. “Dario started work when most of the movie was still in the storyboard phase, and he was able to ask for a few more seconds here and there to let his score breathe – and truly support key moments in the movie. Later, he would also adapt the waltz that he wrote to fit finished shots.”
Enhancing the humorous nature of The Boxtrolls with an original song was comedy icon Eric Idle, of the Monty Python troupe, who contributed the words & music of “The Boxtrolls Song.”
Idle explained, “I do like telling a story in song. From the artwork that the production sent me, I saw that this movie would have fresh and original characters. In context, this would be a song that the people of Cheesebridge sort of knew. So the song had to have a catchy hook to anchor it as well as quite a strong chorus. I started writing, and playing on my guitar, and came up with something that aimed for a Kurt Weill feel.”
Rounding out the album are three tracks – old and new – from the Portland-based band Loch Lomond. The co-ed sextet distinctly incorporates harmonic vocals, mandolin, theremin, bass clarinet, and all manner of exclamatory percussion minutia to play off the distinct, arresting voice of lead singer/multi-instrumentalist Ritchie Young.

Focus Features will release The Boxtrolls, the new movie from animation studio LAIKA, the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Coraline and ParaNorman, in theaters nationwide on September 26, 2014.
