Burbank, CA - November 20, 2020 - Walt Disney Records releases two score albums from hit Disney Channel franchises; Music from Zombies (Original Score) composed by George S. Clinton ("Austin Powers" franchise, "The Santa Claus") and Amit May Cohen and Music from Descendants (Original Score) composed by Emmy® nominated composer David Lawrence ("High School Musical" franchise).  Digital albums are available today.

 

The release of Music from ZOMBIES and Music from Descendants marks the first time original score albums have been released from Disney Channel franchises.  Steven Vincent, vice president of Music and Soundtracks, Disney Channel said, "The score is integral to a movie's success because it elevates the heart, comedy, and overall spirit of the story." Vincent continues, "We're thrilled to be showcasing the work of these immensely talented composers with the special soundtrack release and helping kids and families appreciate the art form even more." 

 

On creating the score for ZOMBIES, composers George S. Clinton and Amit May Cohn said, "One of the main reasons we loved working on the Zombies movies for Disney Channel is that the filmmakers approached it like a feature film and did not condescend. It's a fun and very creative process; scoring the Zombies movies for Disney Channel was a blast!"  Watch the featurette with George S. Clinton and Amit May Cohn here.

 

Descendants composer David Lawrence commented, "Composing the scores for the Descendants Trilogy was a dream come true for me. Good vs. evil and true love winning out at the end...what more could a composer wish for?!"
