Sony Music announces the release of THE ELEPHANT QUEEN (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) with music by Golden Globe and BAFTA®-nominated composer ALEX HEFFES (Miss Bala, The Last King of Scotland, Touching the Void, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom). The album features music from the acclaimed wildlife film which, following its theatrical release at cinemas in the UK and US, will be available exclusively to watch on Apple TV+ from November 1st.  Of the soundtrack, composer ALEX HEFFES says: “Scoring The Elephant Queen has been an unforgettable journey that has taken me into the world of some of the most magnificent creatures. What I learned from spending many hours watching the elephants on screen was just how much like us they are. I wanted the music to help draw out the emotion, joy and sadness that is common to any great family story and I hope that anyone watching and listening will feel that same connection with these wonderful animals.”Embark on an epic journey of family, courage, and coming home. The Elephant Queen is a genre-crossing wildlife documentary, uniquely crafted as a character driven narrative. Its enduring themes are built upon a foundation of authenticity and integrity, brought from filmmakers Mark Deeble (Voyage of Time) and Victoria Stone’s (The Queen of Trees) 60 years of collective experience in the rich tradition of wildlife documentary filmmaking and production. Deeble and Stone, who are Emmy and Peabody Award-winners, spent 25 years living in the East African bush, preparing them for the unforgettable odyssey of The Elephant Queen.The Elephant Queen is Athena, a majestic elephant matriarch, who leads her family across an unforgiving, yet cinematic natural landscape made up of grasslands and woodlands, dotted with seasonal waterholes. The elephants share their home with a cast of supporting character species who provide texture and richness to the elephants’ ecosystem – from a toenail height perspective. Athena, as leader of her herd, anticipates the coming dry season and knows there are lean times ahead. As the waterholes dry up, she has no choice but to take her family on a treacherous journey across even more foreboding landscapes, as the majestic creatures seek refuge until the rains fall again.The film is directed by Deeble & Stone and produced by Stone and Lucinda Englehart. Deeble is the cinematographer and writer. The Music is by Alex Heffes (Last King of Scotland) and narrated by Academy Award- nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (The Boy who Harnessed the Wind and The Lion King).The Elephant Queen was an official selection of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival and the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.Of the soundtrack, filmmakers Mark Deeble and Victoria Stone say: “Alex’s score combines his extraordinary ability and range, with a deep sensitivity - the result is quite magical. The score is hugely varied. At times it is humorous, at others, deeply moving. It reflects Alex’s personal passion for elephants, while perfectly complimenting the scenes, and driving the emotional arc of the story. “TRACK LISTING – 1. Do You Remember?2.
