Nick Cave & Warren Ellis Scoring New Amy Winehouse Biopic ‘Back to Black’

    Nick Cave and Warren Ellis will score the upcoming Amy Winehouse biopic Back to Black, which received its first trailer last month. The studios behind the film, which stars Marisa Abela in the titular role, revealed the news today along with a photo of the musicians in the studio with director Sam Taylor-Johnson.

    “Nick and Warren were the only musicians in my mind to score Back To Black,” Taylor-Johnson said in a statement. “Over the years I’ve listened to everything they’ve composed and longed to realize the dream of working together.  Their sensibility as well as understanding of this story has led to a profoundly deep and moving film score.”

    Last year, Cave and Ellis provided the soundtrack for the Netflix show Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde.

    Back to Black comes out in theaters on May 17.
