For the J.C. Chandor film A Most Violent Year Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert has been tapped on the shoulder to provide the score.

The score earned Alex Ebert a Golden Globe for “Best Original Score” and has been described as haunting and ethereal.

“It is an honor and a privilege to compose for JC, his team, and these actors,” Ebert explained.
“To me this is a character study – a complex combination of hyperbolic capitalist concentration and selfishness mixed with a profound sense of self-imposed ethical virtue. Abel Morales is deep within the American trance – and I sought to bring us all into that trance with him for a time. In the end, though, the story wants a dose of reaction and reality, a bursting of the bubble. I wrote “America For Me” for that purpose.”

The soundtrack of the score is due for release on the 12th December. Take a listen to one of the tracks, “I Am And We Are”, below:
