[exeunt] is taken from the forthcoming Ben Wheatley (A Field In England, Sightseers, Down Terrace) film Happy New Year, Colin Burstead and is a gorgeous plaintive piano piece that shines further light on Mansell’s innate gift for melody and space.
For the soundtrack Mansell explores a variety of moods ranging from Celtic-inflected surreal soundscapes to gorgeous piano-based melodies. The soundtrack for the film will be released digitally by Lakeshore Records this Friday (5th October) with Invada Records releasing the album physically this December.
