First Posthumous Ennio Morricone Album Featuring Unreleased Songs Announced

A posthumous Ennio Morricone album has been announced. The 27-track collection will feature unreleased music from the composer, who died this year at the age of 91. Titled Morricone Segreto, it comes out November 6 (via CAM Sugar/Decca), which would have been the Maestro’s 92nd birthday. Watch the trailer for the album below.

The album’s artwork, which you can also find below alongside the tracklist, describes the music as “the hidden dark-tinged and psychedelic side of the Maestro.” Seven of the album’s songs, recorded between the 1960s and ’80s, are previously unreleased.

In an interview with Variety, Morricone Segreto curator Pierpaolo De Sanctis said that the album is meant to be an experimental departure from Morricone’s most well-known work. “I am talking about electronic music, hip hop, alternative rock,” he said. “The idea was to go look at why Morricone today is still considered so hip in music circles that are very far-removed from the world of film soundtracks.”
