Welcome to Thomas Newman News!

Thank you for visiting Thomas Newman News! A fan of Mr. Newman's music since his 1999 AMERICAN BEAUTY score, I started this blog out of a growing frustration that there wasn't a good website updating Thomas Newman's fans with news and developments about his upcoming projects. One website (Thomas Newman Complete) has done a great job with presenting some biographical material as well as interview quotes with Newman, but the site seems to have been abandoned since last year's JARHEAD score was announced.

On the sidebar to the right you'll find first and foremost an up-to-date list of Newman's upcoming film scores and links to the films' official websites. Below that are various links where you can read more about Newman and his work, as well as some additional resources of interest. Please bookmark this site and check back often; I'll be posting any and every morsel of news about what Thomas Newman is working on and how you can hear his work. Thanks again!

LITTLE CHILDREN, directed by Todd Field (who collaborated with Newman on his 2001 film IN THE BEDROOM), has opened in limited release, but there's still no release date for the soundtrack. However, you can sample and purchase the soundtrack at the iTunes music store. Search for Thomas Newman and you'll find it. I'll be sure to post the CD release date as soon as its announced.

I really enjoy your blog. We have been admirers of Thomas Newman's scores for so long. Maybe your blog will encourage others to listen, too. Thank you.

Thank God someone took the initiative of creating a site/blog dedicated to the incomparable Thomas Newman. I agree that there isn't nearly enough up-to-date information about him or his projects, so you have no idea how much I appreciate the time and effort you're putting into this!

I just realized the "Little Children" score was available on iTunes. I didn't know though that the actual soundtrack wouldn't be unreleased until January! What in the world?! I guess that gives me even more incentive to purchase it through iTunes, although I'd much rather have the actual album in my possession. But what can I say, I'm dyin' for new Tommy material :o)

Yep, I agree about Thomas Newman Complete. Its existence is great, but it only gets updated about once a year. I'm so glad someone took the initiative to do this, and I'm amazed I wasn't the one to do so!

And I, too, became a fan because of his brilliant American Beauty score.
