Mike Rosenberg, better known by the moniker Passenger, is closing 2014 off on a high note with his international hit album, All The Little Lights, officially certified Platinum by Music Canada with over 80,000 albums sold and counting. The album, which featured the 6x Platinum smash single “Let Her Go,” debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon its release in August 2012, where it remained for 45 consecutive weeks, grabbing the #1 position multiple times before crossing into the Top 100 of the Billboard 200. The single, which boasts over 475 Million YouTube views, was #1 at Hot AC, AC and Triple A Radio, as well as Top 10 at Top 40 Radio in Canada.

The follow-up to All The Little Lights, Whispers (June 2014), has been recognized in the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, receiving a nomination for its beautiful packaging by Art Director Sarah Larnarch in the category of “Best Recording Package.” Upon the release of Whispers, Passenger saw career high chart debuts around the globe, landing at #2 on the Canadian Top 200 Chart and #2 on the Digital Albums Chart.

Nettwerk To Release The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack To Still Alice, Starring 2015 Golden Globe-Nominee Julianne Moore

 

“[The] score from British composer Ilan Eshkeri doesn’t tell you how to feel, but rather how [Alice] feels: lost, emotional and anxious most of the time.” – Peter Debruge, Variety

“The score, by Ilan Eshkeri, is also a standout, covering everything from beautiful notes in near-silence to sequences that are meant to — and do — evoke Alice's confusion and loss.” – James Rocchi, The Wrap

“Still Alice has an exceptionally lovely, yearning score by Ilan Eshkeri for violin, viola, cello, and piano.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine's Vulture

Nettwerk is proud to release the Still Alice: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on January 13, just a few days before the wide opening of the film on January 16. Composed by acclaimed British composer Ilan Eshkeri (The Young Victoria, Stardust), the score has already received critical praise for its beautiful accentuation of the film’s highly emotional journey, which follows Alice Howland (portrayed by 2015 Golden Globe-nominee Julianne Moore) as she struggles with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. The album will also feature a cover of Lyle Lovett’s “If I Had A Boat” by British musician Karen Elson, which plays during the credits at the end of the film.
