Composer Steve Jablonsky Unleashes A Transformers Score For The Ages!

Paramount Pictures will release TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT- MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE digitally on June 23, 2017, and La-La Land Records will release a limited edition 2-CD SET (of 3000 units) at www.lalalandrecords.com on July 11, 2017. These releases feature the film’s original motion picture score, composed by Steve Jablonsky (TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, ENDER’S GAME).

Jablonsky and TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT director Michael Bay continue an exciting, longstanding collaboration that has forged numerous cinematic blockbusters, including the previous four TRANSFORMERS films: TRANSFORMERS, TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, TRANSFORMERS: DARK SIDE OF THE MOON and TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION.

“I met with Michael before he started shooting Transformers: The Last Knight,” recalled Jablonsky. “He showed me some amazing concept art and explained how the story connects the history of Transformers all the way back to the times of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. I loved the idea because it gave me the opportunity to explore new musical ideas… The storyline allowed me to write melodies that are a bit more “classical” than I’ve written for the other Transformers films, which was a lot of fun for me.”

 “Another important aspect of the story revolves around massive skyscraper sized ‘horns from hell’that start emerging from the earth,” describes Jablonsky. “They look like gigantic animal horns, no one knows what they are or why they have appeared. I wanted to create an unsettling sense of mystery and tension with the music.”

Jablonsky has composed the music for many of Hollywood’s most successful films. In addition to the legendary TRANSFORMERS film franchise, he previously created the music for director Bay’s dark comedy, PAIN & GAIN, as well as his 2005 futuristic thriller, THE ISLAND.  In addition, Jablonsky composed the scores for Bay’s Platinum Dunes horror remakes A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, FRIDAY THE 13TH, THE HITCHER, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and THE AMITYVILLE HORROR.

The composer has also worked on multiple projects with director Peter Berg, including the action drama LONE SURVIVOR, starring Mark Wahlberg and Taylor Kitsch, and the action adventureBATTLESHIP, starring Liam Neeson and Alexander Skarsgård.  He continued his collaboration with Berg on the action-thriller DEEPWATER HORIZON. Jablonsky also recently composed the score for the Keegan-Michael Key-Jordan Peele action-comedy KEANU, and the Michael Bay-produced action-adventure TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS.  

The TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT – MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE will be available digitally from Paramount Pictures on June 23rd, 2017 and the limited edition 2-CD set is available from www.lalalandrecords.com on July 11, 2017.
