Featuring an original score composed by Christopher Lennertz

(January 28, 2014–Los Angeles, CA) – Varèse Sarabande Records announced that it releases the RIDE ALONG—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on CD today. Universal Pictures’ RIDE ALONG, which was directed by Tim Story, features an original score by Christopher Lennertz (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Horrible Bosses, Hop) and has been No. 1 at the box-office for the second weekend in a row.

“Tim and I wanted to make sure that this film had equal parts action and comedy and that the audience really went along for the ride as well,” said Lennertz. “We knew we needed a full orchestra, classic electronics, and beats that would make you bounce in your seats and keep your heart pounding till the very end. With an amazing collaboration with top deejays NuMark and Cheapshot, we think we’ve brought the buddy cop action genre into the next era.”

Lennertz is a composer, producer, conductor, and arranger for film, television, video games, and records. He first made a splash with his breakout score for Alvin and the Chipmunks, which grossed more than $360 million worldwide. Since then, he’s proven his steadfast talent through films such as the star-studded comedy Horrible Bosses (Warner Bros. Pictures), for which he won a BMI Film Music Award, the successful Hop (Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment) and the box-office smash Identity Thief (Universal Pictures).

Lennertz’ adeptness for a multitude of genres has put him on the map time and time again. His knack for comedy is undeniable through films like The Comebacks, The Perfect Holiday and the cult classic spoofs Vampires Suck and Meet the Spartans. He has contributed his unique brand of humor to several hit family films including Marmaduke and Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. Furthermore, he’s tapped into the indie world, scoring critically acclaimed films like the Alfred P. Sloan winner Adam (Fox Searchlight) and Tortilla Heaven, which garnered Lennertz the very first Film Music award for Best Independent Film Score.

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in RIDE ALONG, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.

Universal Pictures presents RIDE ALONG, in theaters now. The RIDE ALONG–Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available as a limited edition CD today.
