Announced: Gruff Rhys – The Almond & The Seahorse

Gruff Rhys is pleased to announce his forthcoming soundtrack to the film The Almond & The Seahorse via Remote Control Records. The double album will be released digitally and on double deluxe LP in February 2023. 
The 22-track album comprises original songs and instrumental score, all composed by Gruff Rhys. Recorded between 2021-2022 with a host of featured musicians including members of the National Orchestra of Wales, the music features throughout the forthcoming film of the same name, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rebel Wilson and Celyn Jones. 
The first track to be released from the record is ‘Amen’ – a song that Gruff had written shortly before being approached to soundtrack the film: “the yearning and frustration of the song seemed to fit the themes of the film perfectly and the song soundtracks the emotional final payoff at the very end of the movie,” Rhys explains further. The song’s haunting, melodic piano lines became the main recurring musical motif for the drama, making it a fitting entry into the soundtrack’s world.
