Quartet Records, in collaboration with El Deseo, present the soundtrack album of the eagerly anticipated new collaboration between Academy Award-winning director Pedro Almodóvar and prestigious four-time Academy Award-nominated composer Alberto Iglesias (THE CONSTANT GARDENER, THE KITE RUNNER, TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY PARALLEL MOTHERS) for STRANGE WAY OF LIFE. It is their fourteenth film together, coming after twenty-seven years of intense collaboration and worldwide success with such films as ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER, TALK TO HER and PAIN AND GLORY.

STRANGE WAY OF LIFE is a beautifully crafted 38-minute western starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal, a short film produced by Yves Saint Laurent which has just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to huge critical and audience acclaim. In Almodóvar’s own words, it’s his personal reckoning with BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN.

Alberto Iglesias has composed a memorable, nostalgic and crepuscular symphonic score for orchestra and male choir—music that shows the fatalistic nature of the story and its impossible love.

Although it’s a short piece—barely 20 minutes long—this score is of such quality and importance that we believe it should be digitally released, in a strictly limited CD edition of 500 units.

Arrebato (2:02)
El despertar (1:22)
Las segundas intenciones (4:40)
En una bodega mejicana (0:47)
El hijo asesino (4:53)
Los caballos retozan al anochecer (4:37)

Darn it! Figures something this good would be so short.

"Los caballos retozan al anochecer" is one of the loveliest pieces of music composed for film I've heard come down the pike in some time.

And being and Almodóvar fan, I'm certainly eager to see the film.

Is this released in a jewel case or one of those dreadful cardboard cases?
