Score Album Features the Music of Award-Winning Composer Brian Tyler

WaterTower Music is pleased to announce the August 10 release of two
albums of music from director Jon M. Chu's film "Crazy Rich Asians,"
a contemporary romantic comedy based on the acclaimed worldwide
bestseller by Kevin Kwan, that will be in theaters Wednesday, August 15.
One album will be comprised of songs from the film, and the second album
will feature composer Brian Tyler's spirited score.

The 14-song Crazy
Rich Asians: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
album
features several new recordings made for the film, including Miguel's
song "Vote," recorded for the end title sequence; and covers of the
classics "Money (That's What I Want)" by Cheryl K feat.
Awkwafina,
"Yellow" by Katherine Ho (from The
Voice
2016), "Can't Help Falling In Love" by Kina Grannis,
and more. Also highlighted on the soundtrack is the inclusion of several
songs performed in Mandarin Chinese.

"It all comes together in this eclectic tapestry," explained director
Jon M. Chu about the music. "From old to new and remixed, to rap and
hip-hop and jazz—and then, on top of that, we have our amazing composer
Brian Tyler, who brings in a giant orchestra like an old Hollywood
movie."

The Crazy
Rich Asians: Original Motion Picture Score
features
the music of award-winning composer Brian Tyler, who composed a vibrant
and varied score blending elements of old school big band jazz music
with classic romantic string scores and traditional music from Asia.

"Jon and I wanted to really make a splash with this score in a way that
touched upon the classic film style of the great romantic comedies of
old Hollywood with the charisma and beauty of Asian culture," explained
Tyler.

"The idea of combining the spontaneity of jazz with the scope of classic
orchestra was a dream. That kind of musicianship on hand combined with
such a wide sonic palette enabled me to represent both the
sophistication of the crazy rich characters in the film as well as the
deep emotional resonance of the central love story," continued the
composer. "The jazz music provided a fun wild throwback tone and the
strings brought the main themes to life in a way that articulates both
the love and loss in relationships - familial and romantic. This movie
makes you laugh and it makes you cry. I adore this film and Jon Chu's
brilliant direction and am so proud of what we made together. I was
fortunate to be brought on board to bring this music to life."
