New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Decca Records/Decca Gold/Universal Music announces the upcoming release of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to the highly-anticipated feature film, Downton Abbey, scored by composer John Lunn. Composed in a similar style to the two-time Emmy Award-winning music from the series, the score is richly orchestrated, with the familiar title theme making an appearance throughout. In a throwback to the 'Roaring Twenties', upbeat jazz arrangements appear alongside lavish waltzes, reflecting the popular styles of the day.

The original television series first aired on ITV in September 2010 and has enjoyed six critically-acclaimed seasons, gaining legions of fans worldwide and a plethora of awards for cast and creatives. Downton Abbey is scheduled for cinematic release on 13th September in the UK, and 20th September in the United States. The film picks up where the story left off in the autumn of 1927, joining Lord and Lady Grantham and the extended Crawley family as they prepare for a visit from the reigning King George V. With a script by Julian Fellowes, original cast members including Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern and Dame Maggie Smith star alongside new cast members Imelda Staunton, David Haig and Geraldine James.

Scottish composer John Lunn writes music that possesses a unique voice and spans a wide spectrum of musical styles. He received two Primetime Emmy Awards for his music for Downton Abbey, and two BAFTA nominations in 2012 and 2016. Other recent television work includes The White Queen (Starz), Grantchester (ITV), Shetland (BBC One), The Last Kingdom (BBC Two) and Jamestown (Sky). Lunn received critical acclaim for his scores for three BBC Charles Dickens adaptations: The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Little Dorrit, and Bleak House.

Lunn was the first choice to score the film and recalls when the project was first proposed: "I was delighted to be approached to create the feature length film score to a series which has had a huge impact on audiences and fans all over the world. At first it was like discovering a long-lost friend, but gradually I realised that we'd never really been apart; by the end it was just such a joy to revisit this material and have the opportunity to take it to a whole new level."

This year, the iconic British label Decca celebrates its 90th anniversary, having been formed in 1929 - just two years after the film is set, giving this special collaboration even more significance. The soundtrack will be available digitally and on CD and vinyl.

Downton Abbey: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released by Decca Records/Decca Gold/Universal Music on 13th September.
