"Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" Soundtrack Rises to the Occasion With New Music From Danny Elfman

BURBANK, CA -- 08/25/05 -- Three-time Oscar®-nominated composer Danny Elfman has once again joined forces with director Tim Burton to create the evocative and atmospheric original score for "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride," the eagerly awaited new stop-motion animation film starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Emily Watson.

Set for release September 20th on Warner Sunset Records/Warner Bros. Records, "The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" highlights an original score by Elfman, who has previously collaborated with Burton on such acclaimed films as "Beetlejuice," "Batman," "Big Fish" and the recent "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." Elfman relates, "Like 'The Nightmare Before Christmas,' writing songs for 'Corpse Bride' was a real treat. Tim's visuals make the perfect complement for the kind of stuff I love doing most. These wonderfully fun, dark, offbeat tales are the perfect platform for me to write odd, slightly twisted, obscure styles such as my favorite musical era... 1930s jazz. I only hope we get to do more in the future." The soundtrack also features four new songs written by Elfman, three of which include lyrics co-written by John August, including "According To Plan" (performed by Albert Finney, Joanna Lumley, Tracey Ullman and Paul Whitehouse); "Tears To Shed" (performed by Helena Bonham Carter, Jane Horrocks and Enn Reitel), "Remains Of The Day" (performed by Danny Elfman) and "The Wedding Song," written by Danny Elfman (performed by Danny Elfman, Jane Horrocks, Paul Baker, Alison Jiear and Gary Martin).

Continuing in the dark, romantic tradition of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Edward Scissorhands," "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" tells the story of Victor (Johnny Depp), who is whisked away to the underworld to marry the mysterious Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham Carter) while his real bride, Victoria (Emily Watson), waits bereft in the Land of the Living.
