In Bushwick, a young woman (Brittany Snow) teams up with a war veteran (Dave Bautista) when their Brooklyn neighborhood is suddenly under attack by a group of rogue soldiers. On August 25, Lakeshore Records will release a soundtrack album for Bushwick featuring original music composed by Aesop Rock. “This entire project maintained a pretty smooth momentum from start to finish,” said Aesop Rock in press materials for the soundtrack. “This was my first foray into working on a feature film, and this team was helpful the entire way—even in my moments of self-doubt. I’m extremely excited to have been a part of Bushwick.'”
“We were beyond excited and amazed to have a chance to work with Aesop Rock on the score for Bushwick!” said the films directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott. “Aesop keeps blowing us away with his dense, next level lyrics but we were equally impressed by the beats and sounds he creates for each new record. Which is why when we were thinking of someone to score Bushwick we immediately thought of asking him if he’d want to work with us on our passion project. He has created a score that sets the tone for the whole film…The score is gritty, emotional, unnerving and triumphant, taking us on a journey as we weave through the streets of Brooklyn.”
Bushwick will be released in select theaters and on VOD on August 25 by RLJ Entertainment. We have an exclusive soundtrack preview of the score, which you can listen to below.
