CD coming April 1, apparently from Hollywood Records instead of Disney: http://www.amazon.com/Capt-America-Winter-Various-Artists/dp/B00IAR2DNM/

Seems like you never know which record company gets to produce the CD:

(This list is of score releases in the USA only)
Iron Man - Lionsgate
The Incredible Hulk - Marvel Music
Iron Man 2 - Columbia Records
Thor - Buena Vista Records
Captain America: The First Avenger - Hollywood Records
The Avengers - Intrada
Iron Man 3 - Hollywood Records
Thor: The Dark World - Intrada
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Hollywood Records

If the current trend continues, Guardians of the Galaxy will be released by Intrada. But I don't think the deal is as simple as "you-do-one-we-do-one".

Captain America: The First Avenger - Hollywood Records
The Avengers - Intrada
Iron Man 3 - Hollywood Records
Thor: The Dark World - Intrada
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Hollywood Records


And the Intrada ones also carry the Hollywood Records logo.

P.S.: "Hollywood Records instead of Disney"? Branding aside, Hollywood Records is part of Disney, so...

Well, it's a different label or sub-label. Pretty much all animated and PG films get the 'Disney' label on their soundtracks (with a few exceptions like PotC and John Carter), while films aimed at a higher age group seem to get put out by Hollywood Records. I really don't care who puts it out; I'm just glad the score gets released.

Tracklist has apparently been leaked a couple hours ago by Amazon UK, who have either since removed the listing or who never had it up and someone's having fun at fanboy expense. If it's legit, beware of spoilers:

1. Mission to Moscow (4:42)
2. Opening Titles (3:43)
3. Back in Training (3:03)
4. Fast and Fury-ous (2:24)
5. City Under Siege (5:38)
6. Friendly Fire (3:19)
7. The Pursuit of Justice (1:59)
8. S.H.I.E.L.D. Blows Up (1:23)
9. Civil War (3:51)
10. Alexander Pierce is the Red Skull (0:03)
11. The Falcon and The Snowman (4:12)
12. Going Down (2:32)
13. Old-Fashioned (1:37)
14. Comrades in Arms (2:47)
15. Finale (8:19)
16. Assignment Miami Beach (2:12)
17. The Date (1:46)
18. End Credits (15:41)
19. Quill's S.O.S.* (1:15)

*Composed by Tyler Bates


Looks like it runs about 70 minutes, if this is right, but given that one :03 track I'm doubting it's quite right.

If that one is true, I'm disappointed. But like you said, it could just be someone screwing around.

Looks like Giacchino's team of track-namers put this one up. And yeah, it does seem made up.
Hasn't Marvel been careful and not put any spoilers in their track titles so far? There haven't been anything like "The Fake Mandarin", "Coulson Dies" or "Death of Frigga" (Thor: The Dark World spoiler in that last one, because the movie is more recent).

Fake track list. Total bull.

The fact that some of these track titles are actually titles of Police Academy movies tends to make me more than a little suspicious...wink

Interview with Jackman:

It only takes a cursory glance at Henry Jackman’s filmography to realise he’s one of the best and most versatile film composers working today, having worked on animated fare such as Wreck-It Ralph, in addition to superhero blockbusters like X-Men: First Class and more recently, the as yet unreleased Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

We were lucky enough to speak with the composer on the phone for the home entertainment release of Captain Phillips (which he scored), and our conversation touched on his scoring process, epic superhero themes, a ‘treasure chest’ of music no one has ever heard before, and much more.

We’ll have the full interview online for you in the next couple days, but for now have a read below to see what he had to say about scoring Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

“The score I’ve done recently, Captain America…The reason I like it particularly is because it’s 50% production and all the tricks I’ve learnt from spending years in the record industry but then it’s also got the kind of injection of symphonic, thematic, heroic music that all kind of merges into one musical, and hopefully coherent piece”.

“You need a sort of perfect storm of circumstances to allow something radical to work in a film where you’re not just being self-conscious, where you’re not just trying to show off or whatever, and this [Captain America] was it. I can’t say too much because I know Marvel will shoot me, but Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a brilliant film that is part of the Marvel franchise but the directors John and Anthony Russo are geniuses. It’s a Marvel film that’s taking it one step further. They’ve made Captain America much more contemporary. The story is set in 2013, so it’s not a period film and it doesn’t have Indiana Jones style Nazis running around the place, it’s all set in the modern era and it’s a cross between a superhero and a modern political thriller so that’s already awesome”.

“What’s great about that is because it’s a Captain America film you need these traditional, thematic elements which eventually come through in act three of the film, but also the film is super-contemporary. Plus, Winter Soldier is this crazy, dark, RoboCop-type figure who is somewhat human but mechanised, completely messed up. Slightly human but completely tortured and completely manipulated, but crucially mechanised”.

“So I said you know what, I’m gonna do something completely crazy and dark for the Winter Soldier, and I’m just gonna go for it. I hadn’t worked with these directors before, and away from picture I just wrote a suite for the Winter Soldier that was about six or seven minutes long that I spent ages on and treated it like a record. The idea being that if I get this vibe right, if I nail this six or seven minute thing which I think is the essence of the character and it’s super radical and it’s not that traditional and not completely orchestral because I want to save some of that for Captain America, let’s just see what these guys say. I played it for them really loud, and after they were finished there was a bit of a silence, and then Joe [Russo] went “I love it! Awesome!” (laughs) What was really cool about it was that he said that piece was so great and unique and it doesn’t sound exactly like film music, do me a favour and don’t do that thing when once we start working on the movie it gets sanitised or watered down. Whatever it is I just heard, I really want to hear that in the movie and not just 20% of that in the film, and that gave me all the information I needed about how creatively brave these guys were and it works in the film, and I’m really proud of it. And this track that I’m talking about will be on the CD in it’s original form”.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is released in UK cinemas on 26 March, 2014.

That interests and scares me at the same time.

I loved Silvestri´s score for the first one. I know that this film will be different and therefore ask for a different approach. And I have come around on my perspective on contemporary scoring.

I just hope Jackman´s suite or theme for the Winter Soldier will not be just him noodling around on his technical equipment.

Oh yeah. Hmmm... Oops. I think I though (mistakenly) that that previous link was for Amazon.co.uk. Oh well. My brain has been fried by hours of homework anyway.

This movie actually looks promising... the score, eh, not so much, at least judging by that clip.

Are we sure it's a score? Seems when Hollywood is involved it's a various/score combination.

Jackman has done some good work in this genre, so I'm sure the score will be fine. But after hearing Silvestri's theme (albeit briefly) in both The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World, it's going to be really disappointing if there's not at least a few bars from it in Cap's own sequel.

Of course I haven't seen the movie yet, but I just don't agree that the theme can't work in a "darker" film. It's a malleable theme; it doesn't have to be full, blaring, and triumphant every time out. The melody itself encapsulates Cap's character, and it can be rearranged or re-orchestrated to suit the character's new surroundings. It's not rocket science; it's just music theory.
