Sony Masterworks will release a soundtrack album for the Netflix animated film Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget. The album features the movie’s original music composed by Harry Gregson-Williams (Shrek, The Martian, The Chronicles of Narnia, Man on Fire, Mulan, Kingdom of Heaven) who previously co-scored the 2000 original film with John Powell. Also included is the original song My Sweet Baby written by Josh Crocker, John Crocker & Charlotte Jane performed by Paloma Faith. The soundtrack will be released digitally next Friday, December 15 and is now available for pre-order on Amazon. A first track (Opening Recap) is already available to stream/download now and can also be checked out below. Click here to check out the project’s music team credits. Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget is directed by Sam Fell and features the voices of Thandiwe Newton, Zachary Levi, Bella Ramsey, Imelda Staunton, Lynn Ferguson, Romesh Ranganathan, David Bradley, Jane Horrocks and Daniel Mays. The Aardman Animations production follows a band of fearless chickens who flock together to save poultry-kind from a nearby farm that’s cooking up something suspicious.

    Is it actually opening in select theatres? I can’t find another source confirming that.

      It wouldn’t be qualifying for awards if it didn’t. It’s playing at IFC Center here in New York.
