28 June 2016, 18:18 | Written by Laurence Day

Alex Somers has recruited Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi and Sin Fang's Sindri Már Sigfússon for "Funeral Pyre", the latest taste of his Captain Fantastic score.

Somers has composed the soundtrack for the acclaimed drama, which stars Viggo Mortenson and is written/directed by Matt Ross.

Speaking about "Funeral Pyre" - the second preview of the score following "A New Beginning" - Somers says: “I wanted these videos to be moments passing in time. Slowly unfolding and breathing with the music... to create a spark between the music and the picture.”

Captain Fantastic is out 8 July. Watch the trailer.
