Alex Lifeson The Double film score project update

Mon, Feb 28, 2011@7:19PM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 3/1@4:19PM: Rush engineer Richard Chycki is apparently doing the mixing for the score as demonstrated by this post to his Twitter feed on Friday:

Soundtrack for Richard Gere movie 'Double' done and in the can, including the groovy out credit piece. Well, our part any way ...

And Sylvya NuVynska tweeted the following on Sunday:

Sang and wrote lyrics for the outro song for the new Richard Gere movie #TheDouble coming out soon...

Thanks to Eric at Power Windows for the heads up.

UPDATE - 2/28@8:39PM: I should point out that although Sylvya NuVynska worked specifically on the outro piece with Alex, it's certainly possible that Alex also worked on other portions of the score. Hopefully we'll find out more details in the coming weeks/months.

One of the many side projects that Alex Lifeson has been working on recently is a score for a film starring Martin Sheen and Richard Gere titled The Double. The movie features original music by film composer John Debney and last week we learned that Skinny Puppy founding member cEvin Key was also involved with the score, as he posted to his Facebook page:

collaboration is cool, who would ever guess John Debney, cEvin Key
w Alex Lifeson from Rush and Martin Sheen.

BW&BK revealed some further information on this collaboration earlier today reporting that the particular piece in question is the film's outro music and that former Scarlet Sins vocalist Sylvya NuVynska added vocals and lyrics to the track. The film is written and directed by Michael Brandt and centers around a retired CIA operative who is paired with a young FBI agent to unravel the mystery of a senator's murder. It's due out later this year but no specific release date has been given yet. Alex Lifeson first mentioned his involvement with the film in his VH1 Classic Rock Nights interview a few weeks ago.
