Daniele Luppi, the Italian composer who artfully straddles the world of traditional film composition (Hell Ride, Under The Tuscan Sun, Inside Deep Throat) and contemporary music (Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells, Mondo Cane), will make the long-coveted score to Malos Habitos (Bad Habits) available on Apr. 26 via Ipecac Recordings.
Malos Habitos (Bad Habits) is an award-winning Mexican film about a dysfunctional family living in Mexico City. The haunting, twenty-track score has been unavailable until now.
Luppi came to international attention in 2004 with the daring debut, An Italian Story, an homage to the cinematic sounds he discovered in his youth. Since that time, the composer has worked on an impressive array of film scores while simultaneously working with contemporary musicians on arrangements for their albums including John Legend, Gnarls Barkley and Mike Patton's Mondo Cane. One of the most anticipated albums of 2011 is Rome, an album five years in the making that sees Luppi once again re-team with Danger Mouse.
