Lakeshore Records will release both the original soundtrack and an original score album for the film Wish Upon digitally on July 14, 2017. The Wish Upon – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, with music supervision by Alexandra Patsavas, features the original song “Be Careful What You Wished For” by Wayfarers, along with tracks by Hey Violet, Grace Mitchell, Kil The Giant, Lili Ray, and Leo Soul (feat. Lili Ray). It will be released on CD later this summer. The Wish Upon – Original Score album features music by tomandandy (The Monster, The Rules of Attraction, Killing Zoe).
“John [Leonetti, director] and I worked closely together to come up with songs that embody the Wish Upon sonic universe – catchy, modern, classic and sometimes a little tense and off-kilter,” says Music Supervisor/Producer Alexandra Patsavas. Patsavas has been responsible for identifying and exposing a remarkable string of original music to mainstream audiences.
When composing for the film Andy Milburn of tomandandy found it, “Helpful that the melody has a least a couple of tiny ‘mini- melodies’ within it that can be broken out and used separately. In Wish Upon, this took the form of a counter melody that’s really just a little accompanying figure, able to stand on its own and evoke the box—without requiring a complete re-statement of the theme.”
