Mondo is beyond honored to present their very first Coen Brother's soundtrack, as well as our first Carter Burwell score, the magnificent soundtrack for the Coen's latest farce Hail, Caesar! which marks Burwell's 16th collaboration with the brothers. Prior collaborations include Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, Fargo, Intolerable Cruelty, The Ladykillers, No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading, A Serious Man and True Grit.
A good part of the magic of this movie comes from the music of Carter Burwell, who dove deep into the period of the film, and the multiple film genres that it explores in each of its many tangents (including a musical number performed by Channing Tatum.) Also, drawing heavy on the red-scare, bringing selections performed by the Red Army Choir to add bombast to the scenes with would be antagonists of this story.

Discussing his work on Hail, Caesar!, Burwell says: "The challenge and the fun of composing the score to Hail, Caesar! is that the it contains scenes from many films-in-the-making, and each of those was scored in a manner authentic to the period- basically MGM in the 1950s. There is an Esther Williams water ballet, a Hopalong Cassidy Western, a Roman Christ epic, and all of these are subsumed by a kidnapping mystery, which is itself subsumed by a studio executive's crisis of faith. Melodies are shared between these bits of bright cloth to tie them together into a whole, and some of the recording was even done on the same stage where the MGM classics were recorded."
