DC Universe’s Stargirl series is getting help from a genre related musician. Composer Pinar Toprak revealed that she will be scoring the upcoming live-action series.
Rob Simonsen, one of the most productive film composers in the last few months, officially announced that he will be relasing his debut solo album on Sony Masterworks record label. He also released the first single titled ‘Spectre’, which is now available on all streaming platforms.
He stated on facebook: ,,Today I’m releasing the first single off my forthcoming debut solo album on Sony Masterworks. Releasing my own record has been something I’ve thought a lot about (with both excitement and anxiety) for many years and today I’m so happy to share the first single, ‘Spectre’. The track is about mystery, melancholy and wonder; the feeling of awakening from a dream or waking into a dream.”
,,It was created entirely in Studios Les Saint Germain in Paris, France, with my co-producers Raphael Hamburger and Stan Neff. I wanted to use the colors of brass, cellos, choir, an ondes martenot, and piano, and we brought in brilliant players who gave it so much life and vibe.”
Composer of films such as The Age of Adaline, (500) Days of Summer or the recent The Upside, which doubled expectations with its $19.5 million debut, enough to defeat “Aquaman’s” three-week reign in North America, is now taking a short break from film scoring to finish his solo album, but we already see that he quickly plans to come back, as his IMDb credits already appeard in 2020 comedy project Stargirl directed by Julia Hart.

Composer Geoff Zanelli is teaming with director Deon Taylor again on an upcoming thriller Black and Blue, which got its trailer released just yesterday.
The Lion King! Today, the official film’s soundtrack has been announced. It’s out digitally on July 11 and physically July 19 (via Walt Disney Records).
