Back Lot Music will release a score album for Illumination Entertainment’s animated feature Minions: The Rise of Gru. The album features the film’s original score composed by Heitor Pereira (The Angry Birds Movie, The Smurfs, Smallfoot, Paw Patrol – The Movie, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, It’s Complicated) who previously scored the first Minions movie and all three installments in the Despicable Me series. The soundtrack will be released digitally tomorrow, July 8 and will be available to stream/download on Amazon and other digital music stores. Decca Records has previously released a separate soundtrack featuring the songs from the movie and a score suite last Friday. Minions: The Rise of Gru is directed by Kyle Balda and stars Steve Carell, Taraji P. Henson, Lucy Lawless, Michelle Yeoh, Julie Andrews, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Alan Arkin, Russell Brand and Danny Trejo.
