WONKA - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Limited Chocolate Brown / Cream Vinyl 2LP


Release date: 28 June, 2024

Mutant, in partnership with WaterTower Music, are proud to present....

The original motion picture soundtrack to Paul King's 2023 film Wonka, with delectable original music performed by Timothée Chalamet in the title role, along with the movie's phenomenal ensemble cast, including Hugh Grant, Calah Lane and Keegan-Michael Key, and many others. The score features all-new music from acclaimed composer Joby Talbot and songwriter Neil Hannon. 

"Right from the start I knew I wanted Wonka to be a companion piece to the 1971 movie," says co-writer and director Paul King "for which Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse wrote such extraordinary, enduring songs as Oompa Loompa and, of course, Pure Imagination. Our movie is set 25 years before theirs, in the late 1940s instead of the early 1970s, and I wanted new songs that could capture the spirit of their writing, as well as a flavour of our setting - the golden age of the Hollywood musical. 

Composer Joby Talbot says: "Paul King is a director who puts music front and center, and I'm grateful that he gave me so much room to really explore the musical possibilities of the beautiful and exciting world he created." 

Songwriter Neil Hannon says: “To be allowed to stir some of my own imaginative ingredients into Paul's fantastical recipe is one of the honours of my life. To get to work with my old friend and collaborator Joby Talbot again was a joy, and reminded me of what a genius he is. And for my humble songs to share the stage with two Newley-Bricusse classics I grew up adoring, is something I could only have dreamt about. But then every good thing in this world started with a dream!”
