addams family soundtrack

The Addams Family are back, in cartoon form. The new animated film based on the classic, creepy comic strip from Charles Addams, boasts an all-star voice cast and animation meant to emulate Addams’ original style. The film also features a score courtesy of Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna, and we’re debuting an exclusive Addams Family soundtrack track below.

The Addams Family Soundtrack – Give My Creatures Life

Lakeshore Records will release The Addams Family—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on October 11, featuring a whopping 41 tracks  Composed by Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna (The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Tyrant), the score bucks tradition, blending non-western music with an orchestral score. Also, sadly, there is no “Addams Groove” performed by M.C. Hammer.

Regarding their score, Mychael and Jeff Danna said

“In Conrad Vernon’s and Greg Tiernan’s visually lavish film, they take us back to the Addams Family ‘s old country’ European roots as the film begins its journey. Musically we relished the opportunity to explore things from that perspective, and arrived at Gypsy Music as a way to access the history and the dark humor of the family as they migrate to America to start their new lives. Combining gypsy instrumentation and modalities from Spain and Eastern Europe with a cinematic orchestra, gave us a tremendously colorful and lively palette to work with. Adding a dash of large gothic organ and musical saw to the brew, we created a sound that moved easily between Large & Frightening and Whimsical – Gothic and Ironic. We felt it appropriate to have moments where we honored Vic Mizzy’s popular 1964 Addams Family tv theme song, a tune that is linked inextricably with the iconic Addams characters. We enjoyed putting that music into a new light, with gypsy instruments and time signatures, and sometimes the full orchestra pounding out the familiar 4 note refrain.”

The Addams Family opens in theaters October 11. See the full soundtrack track list below.
