The album features the film’s original music composed by Explosions in the Sky¬†and Steve Jablonsky (Transformers, Ender’s Game).

    Correction, it tells the “true” story.

    Radio, movie studio runner and television host/producer Glenn Beck is good friends with Luttrell (the surviving SEAL) and asked him how it was, since you never know what Hollywod may do to the truth; Luttrell said it was very accurate, and that some of the scenes, look just ike the nighmares he still has to today.

    Do you know where this soundtrack is available? I’m not finding it in the usual places for the U.S… although a clip(s) plays on the official website currently.

      According to this article, it’s been release digitally by now, but I didn’t see anything about a physical CD.

  3. Adam says:

    Really disappointed this isn’t out yet. Nothing on iTunes and when you go to the Lone Survivor site there’s an option to click on ‘buy the soundtrack’ but then it says it’s no where to be found. I saw this movie yesterday and I’ve been looking for the soundtrack every hour since. It’s amazing.

    • John says:

      I just looked on Amazon’s website and it has the release date listed as next Tuesday, January 21, 2014. I saw the film this past Saturday (1/11/14) and loved it. It really captured the essence of the book, which I also loved.

    There’s album named Lone Survivor in Spotify. Great stuff.
