New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Music.Film and Varèse Sarabande will release a new single "Dancing In Silence," inspired by Carter Burwell's themes from THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI. The track was co-written by Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Femke and produced by Dutch electronic music artist ReauBeau.
"Dancing in Silence" is the result of a unique partnership, one that allows the song to work off Carter Burwell's central theme from his score for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The film was a big winner at the Oscars and other major international film awards and earned the composer both an Oscar and Golden Globe
ReauBeau was inspired by the soundtrack, and couldn't miss the opportunity to work with such an important piece of music. Using elements of the soundtrack, ReauBeau incorporated an epic progression as well as his signature punchy drum rhythms. Femke introduced her unique take on the track by adding completely original lyrics and vocals, which were inspired by the film's powerful message. She also acted as a co-producer, completing the circle of wonderful musical collaboration.
"The movie is such a powerhouse and showcases a strong female character," said Femke. "I hope by putting lyrics to Carter's powerful theme, we can create an anthem for a new generation of women."
"It's fascinating to hear how the score to THREE BILLBOARDS has been re-imagined here," said Burwell. "I'm honored that Femke and ReauBeau were inspired by my theme to create this song."
Femke is a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer who released her latest single, Call This, in 2017. Femke has been getting special recognition for her unique writing style since her study at Boston's Berklee College of Music. Originally from the Netherlands, Femke has come to Nashville via
Los Angeles, where she was an assistant to film composer, Richard Gibbs, on TV shows such as ABC Family's Ten Things I Hate About You and The Tracey Ullman Show. Femke worked at Hans Zimmer's remote control and has recently started a record label in Nashville.
