Soundtrack News: ‘Bullet Train’ Original Soundtrack Available Now

Milan Records has released BULLET TRAIN (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE) with music by composer Dominic Lewis. 

Available everywhere now, the album features music written by Lewis for the action-thriller film starring Brad Pitt as Ladybug. Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2), the film is a nonstop thrill ride, with Lewis’ compositions to match. Working in close collaboration with Leitch, Lewis crafted an expansive soundscape covering a wide range of genres and styles, each tailored to the dynamic onscreen story and its cast of characters. 

In Bullet Train, Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, an unlucky assassin determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs gone off the rails. Fate, however, may have other plans, as Ladybug’s latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe—all with connected, yet conflicting, objectives—on the world’s fastest train. The end of the line is just the beginning in this non-stop thrill-ride through modern-day Japan from David Leitch, the director of Deadpool 2.


Of the soundtrack, composer Dominic Lewis had the following to say:

“I really tried to approach this score as some form of concept album, asking myself, ‘What is the perfect needle drop for each moment that tells story and weaves in out of the movie’s arcs, disguised as a song but doing the job of score?’ ‘What if you were flicking through an old vinyl collection and found an obscure ‘70s record, used that for your samples on your album?’ That was the idea for the Bullet Train score, only I had to create that record before approaching each scene.” Speaking of his experience working with director David Leitch, Lewis continues, “A blank canvas can often be accompanied with instructions of which paints to use and where. Not with David. Without his trust, vision, and a collaborative experience that is second-to-none, the stars wouldn’t have aligned to create this gonzo, badass score. I hope audiences have as much fun listening to it as I did making it.”
