19-Apr-2015 -

Lakeshore Records will release the score for The Age Of Adaline digitally on April 21st and on CD May 12, 2015. The album features the film’s original score by Rob Simonsen and the song “Start Again” with Simonsen and Faux Fix, featuring Elena Tonra. THE AGE OF ADALINE, a romantic drama, stars Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman, Kathy Baker, with Harrison Ford and Ellen Burstyn and will be released nationwide by Lionsgate on April 24, 2015. The film is directed by Lee Toland Krieger from a screenplay by J. Mills Goodloe & Salvador Paskowitz and J Mills Goodloe; story by J. Mills Goodloe & Salvador Paskowitz. Producers are Sidney Kimmel, Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi.

After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost eight decades, Adaline Bowman [Blake Lively] has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones [Michiel Huisman] reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents [Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker] threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever.

“We all agreed that since the story spans the last hundred years, the orchestra was the appropriate instrument and tone for the score,” said Simonsen. “While there are some ambiences and synthesized elements in there, they’re meant to add atmosphere for the most part, and not sound manufactured, per se.”

With a keen instinct for storytelling, Simonsen has established himself amongst a new wave of composers making a significant impact in the film industry. Under the mentorship of Mychael Danna, Simonsen apprenticed alongside one of the most respected film composers from the last two decades. In addition to co-scoring films like the Fox Searchlight hit (500) Days of Summer, Rob provided additional music for films including Moneyball and Life of Pi, the latter of which won the Academy Award for Best Original Score in 2013.
