This stunning new soundtrack from Jóhann Jóhannsson was created for multi-award winning director James Marsh's new film "The Mercy" (StudioCanal).
Appearing in the film are cinema heavyweights Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz and David Thewlis. The film itself chronicles yachtsman Donald Crowhurst's (Colin Firth) disastrous attempt to win the 1968 Golden Globe Race which ends up with him creating an outrageous account of traveling the world alone by sea.
The music is a combination of newly written, commercial orchestral scores and existing pieces from Jóhann´s catalogue such as Orphée, Englabörn, Free The Mind and Copenhagen Dreams, providing the perfect background to a riveting film.
