Mike and I are excited, elated, proud, relieved, and a bunch of other emotions to *FINALLY* announce the release of a soundtrack of Jeremy Zuckerman’s score from Book 1 of The Legend of Korra. I can’t begin to summarize the 9-year struggle we have endured to get any sort of a soundtrack released. We love Jeremy’s music deeply, and we know the fans do too, so it has been an incredibly frustrating wait and battle to make this a reality. All of the online petitions for an Avatar: The Last Airbender soundtrack were an amazing show of support from thousands of people and greatly appreciated, but for so long it seemed to be in vain as the idea of a soundtrack was blocked at a bureaucratic impasse.
Gratefully, thanks to the tireless efforts of some key people inside and outside of Nickelodeon who championed this project for many years, it is finally happening. Now, we are very aware that those petitions were for an Avatar soundtrack, which has yet to see the light of day. Firstly, we are lucky to get any sort of music release to happen, and secondly, our hope is that the Korra Book 1 soundtrack will be a success and show the company that there is a real demand for other music releases, Avatar included.
And a *HUGE* thank to Jeremy for his incredible scores. We are honored and lucky to get to work with a composer so immensely talented and dedicated. Congratulations on the release!
Above is the art I painted for the cover. Below is some info about the release:
–The first-ever The Legend of Korra soundtrack - The Legend of Korra: Original Music From Book One – will be available digitally and in stores everywhere on Tuesday, July 16.
–The album showcases 26 original instrumental tracks composed by Jeremy Zuckerman.
–The album is currently available for pre-order.
–The Legend of Korra: Original Music From Book One is being released by Nickelodeon and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.
And here is an article on the Wall St. Journal blog that features a 4-minute cue in its entirety.
