A soundtrack album for the historical drama A Royal Affair has been released on iTunes last week. The album features the film’s original music composed by Academy Award-winning composer Gabriel Yared (The English Patient) and Cyril Aufort (Splice). The soundtrack is now available digitally and a limited physical release is scheduled to come out on May 22, 2012 by Movie Score Media. Audio clips are available on iTunes. A Royal Affair is directed by Nicolaj Arcel (King’s Game, screenwriter of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and stars Mads Mikkelsen and Alicia Vikander as Caroline Mathilda. The Zentropa production is set in the early 1770’s and centers on the affair between Chr. VII’s German physician, Johan Struensee, and the English born queen of Denmark, Caroline Mathilda. The drama premiered at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and has already been released in several European markets. A UK debut is set for June.
