New Single Release: “So This Is the Famous Suicide Squad” by John Murphy from THE SUICIDE SQUAD
Troll Court/WaterTower Music today released the track “So This Is the Famous Suicide Squad,” the first track fans can hear from writer/director James Gunn’s upcoming superhero action film THE SUICIDE SQUAD, which features a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup. “So This Is the Famous Suicide Squad (from The Suicide Squad)” is the first track to be made available from British film composer John Murphy’s (KICK ASS, 28 DAYS LATER, SNATCH) album THE SUICIDE SQUAD, which is scheduled to be released in its entirety on August 6, in conjunction with the film’s release.
“ ‘So This Is the Famous Suicide Squad’ was actually the first thing I wrote for the film,” said Murphy. “James [Gunn] and I wanted the score to have attitude. And because of the characters we were being introduced in this scene, all I could hear in my head was this crunchy, relentless low E string; a bit punk but with a dirty swagger. I’ve always wanted to write a theme around one note so when I picked up the guitar it just came out in one go.”
Liverpool born John Murphy began scoring movies at the age of 25. In 2001, following the success of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, he moved to Los Angeles. Since then he has worked with some of the industry’s most respected and luminary filmmakers, including Michael Mann, Danny Boyle, Guy Ritchie, Stephen Frears, and James Gunn. Murphy is currently working with Gunn on THE PEACEMAKER.
