Hans Zimmer’s score brings a touch of the classic alongside the new.
Over a year ago, the first track from ‘No Time To Die’ was released. The track was the world-famous ‘Gunbarrel’ theme, revealing that the classic scene once again features at the start of the film. COVID then determined that the film would have to sit on the shelf, denying us the chance to hear the rest of Hans Zimmer’s score. In the UK, the film will be released on September 30th. In the U.S, it drops a week later on October 8th. The score itself becomes available on October 1st. Ahead of the film opening and the release of the soundtrack, two additional tracks have made their debut.
THE SOUNDS OF JOHN BARRY AND DAVID ARNOLD.
One of the tracks gives us a blast of the James Bond Theme. It is very similar in style to David Arnold’s music from ‘Casino Royale’. The classic theme with modern elements. And the obligatory guitar twang of 007s theme. The other track is one that may cause the fans to smile as well as chill them with a sense of foreboding. It starts off well. But then it goes into a new version of ‘We Have All The Time In The World’ from ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.’ And we already know that the last time we heard the theme, it didn’t end well for Bond’s new wife, Tracy. And gave us the most downbeat ending to a Bond film EVER. Zimmer has reproduced John Barry’s classic music for the new film. And it could mean things don’t bode well for Lea Seydoux’s Dr. Madeline Swann.
