La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures proudly present the world premiere official release of renowned composer David Arnold’s (SHERLOCK, CASINO ROYALE, INDEPENDENCE DAY, STARGATE) original motion picture score to the 2000 Paramount Pictures’ action/thriller SHAFT, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Vanessa Williams and Christian Bale, and directed by John Singleton. The classic 70’s icon, Shaft, returns, re-imagined for the new millennium and composer Arnold brings him back in high-style, with a knockout blast of a score that expertly interprets Isaac Hayes’ Oscar-winning original theme in thrilling fashion, all the while spinning off in its own original directions. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz from studio vault elements, this limited edition of 2500 units features bonus tracks (including a special SHAFT 2000 remix) and exclusive, in-depth liner notes from writer Tim Greiving with all-new interview comments from composer David Arnold. Groovy art direction is by Dan Goldwasser. Shut your mouth… and TURN IT UP!
