On September 20th, Relativity Music Group will release the soundtrack to Marc Forster’s Machine Gun Preacher, which features “The Keeper,” the latest track from Chris Cornell. The track is anchored by arpeggiated acoustic guitar picking backed by Cornell’s mild, affecting vocals. You can hear the song below via SoundCloud, and if you want to have a download of the song you can find it at Cornell’s website. Once there, you can donate to download, with money benefiting Sam Childers’ Angels of East Africa charity, if you download today.
Due out September 23rd, the film Machine Gun Preacher is based on the true story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who finds faith leading him on a path to East Africa. Shocked by the mayhem in Sudan, Childers becomes a crusader for hundreds of refugee children. Inspired to create a safe haven for the multitudes fleeing enslavement by the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army, he restores peace to their lives and eventually his own.
The Machine Gun Preacher soundtrack features 15 score cues performed and composed by acclaimed musical group Asche & Spencer (Monster’s Ball) and accompanied by a 60-piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra. The symphony was recorded in a historic facility outside Vienna, Austria in the town of Bratislava. Vladimir Martinka conducted the session which was orchestrated by Sean McMahon & David Shephard.
