Gary Numan‘s first score for a film in 23 years, John Bergin‘s From Inside, will be released in two editions in October.
Lakeshore Records will release From Inside – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on Oct. 7. Two weeks later, on Oct. 21, Lakeshore will release the DVD From Inside: Gary Numan Special Edition. The album features original music by Numan and Ade Fenton.
One of the founding fathers of synth-pop, known for his 1980 top 10 hit “Cars,” Numan has released more than 35 albums and continues to tour regularly. His only other score was for the 1991 horror film The Unborn.
Numan wrote the score for From Inside in 2013 after the film had screened in more than 35 festivals between 2008 and 2010 with a different score. Lakeshore released that version of the film on DVD in 2012 and has since discontinued it. The company will release a new version with Numan’s score.
From Inside tells the story of a young pregnant woman on a damaged train moving slowly through a post-apocalyptic landscape where floods, war, starvation and a plague of death threaten the train’s passengers.
Numan described the important challenge of the film was to create music “to establish the relentless power and motion of the train, the desolate landscape, the tragedy of what had happened.”
