A couple people have recently emailed me asking about the instrumental version of The Fabulist that plays during the scene on the Fidele in The Brothers Bloom. We decided not to include it in the official soundtrack album (maybe because of the jarring horn cutaway right in the middle that plays along as Stephen references something about thugs and Jakarta?), but I thought I’d post it here for those who are interested. Happy Friday!
The ending song I wrote for the Brothers Bloom. String arrangements by the ever great Son Lux. I did a few versions of this before settling on this sedated one. Somewhere, there exists what we took to calling the “My Heart Will Go On” version. Bombast doesn’t suit it, trust me.
