Republic Records teams with 20th Century Fox and LightWorkers Media, which is owned and operated by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, to release the original motion picture soundtrack album for the upcoming film, Son of God.
 
The collection is available in stores in North America and Canada February 25 as well as via iTunes globally the same day. The online pre-order has recently gone live this past week here. Meanwhile, the movie will be released in theaters across the United States Friday February 28.
 
Oscar winner, Golden Globe winner, and multiple Grammy winner Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe composed immersive orchestral music for the film punctuated by lyrics and vocals from Lisa Gerrard. Enhancing the emotional impact, some of Jesus Christ's most revered teachings, from the film Son of God entwine with Zimmer and Balfe's composition. This inclusion of the film's dialogue proves utterly moving, bringing Christ's words to life.

In addition, the soundtrack album includes exclusive remixes of songs for Son Of God by multiplatinum-selling and award-winning acts such as CeeLo Green, Steven Stern & George Krikes, OneRepublic, Sara Bareilles, The Fray, Hillsong UNITED, and more. Green's poetic performance on "Mary Did You Know" serves as the end title song, while Steven Stern & George Krikes' "Soul of a Man" can be heard now on the trailer. OneRepublic give vibrant new vitality to "Life In Color", and Hillsong UNITED's "Oceans" swells into a rapturous hum. 
 
"The music and talent on this soundtrack is truly such an incredible part of telling this story." said producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. "The great Hans Zimmer has been an inspiration since the beginning and now we are excited to be able to add even more voices to Son of God and engage our audience through music that they have yet to experience."
 
Label executive vice president Tom Mackay shares his enthusiasm. "Son of God is a film that Mark and Roma were called to create. Every detail of this film has their meticulous approval for authenticity and accuracy. They applied that same passion and attention to detail with the soundtrack as well.  All of us at Republic Records are thrilled that Mark and Roma chose us as their label partner to help create this soundtrack and partner with them on its release."  
 
Son of God tells the story of Jesus Christ from birth following his incredible journey and examining his crucifixion and resurrection. The soundtrack adds a passionate and powerful musical accompaniment to this riveting tale, matching the emotions conveyed on the screen. Son Of God is the first feature film release for LightWorkers Media.
 
This is the latest in a string of successful and award-nominated film and television music releases from Republic Records. Past collaborations include soundtracks for The Hunger Games, Les Miserables, Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, The Walking Dead, the music documentary entitled Muscle Shoals and more.
