WaterTower Music today announced the March 31 release date of the soundtrack to Going In Style, the new comedy that teams up Oscar winners Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules,” “Hannah and Her Sisters”) and Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”), and is in theaters nationwide April 7.

The soundtrack was produced by Going in Style director Zach Braff, who explained his philosophy about the music.  “What I wanted to do with this soundtrack was have a mix of music that the characters might listen to; and I also wanted a mix of the sounds of the city, since it takes place in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.” The soundtrack features the film’s stars Alan Arkin and Ann-Margret singing on their newly recorded duet, “Hallelujah I Love Her So,” and Jamie Cullum’s new rendition of “Hey, Look Me Over,” along with a fun and eclectic mix of songs from the film. Dean Martin, Otis Redding, Dinah Washington, Sonny Rollins, and Sam Cooke classics are co-mingled seamlessly with music from A Tribe Called Quest and Mark Ronson featuring Mystikal.

Composer Rob Simonsen (“Age of Adeline,” “Foxcatcher”), “did this amazing score that was full of heart, melody, and action,” explains Braff. Simonsen, who previously worked with Braff on “Wish I Was Here,” has seven of his compositions from the film included on the soundtrack.  “Zach is quite talented when it comes to using music and songs in films, always driving at the right emotion,” says the composer. “So it was exciting to get a chance to create a big, fun score for Going in Style. We worked hard to do something that was modern, with a slight nod to some of the great, jazzy heist scores of the ‘60s and ‘70s. We hope you enjoy listening and watching as much as we did creating it.”
