There few other directors whose soundtrack is so heavily ingrained with their films as Wes Anderson and his works. With his upcoming Moonrise Kingdom on the cusp of release we finally have the full soundtrack details, including a piece of score from Alexandre Desplat. It was previously revealed that Devo front man Mark Mothersbaugh, who scored Anderson‘s first three films, had a hand in composing.

French singer Françoise Hardy and classical composer Benjamin Britten are also among the featured artists and featured in the film’s original trailer. Other music comes from country legend Hank Williams (who has three tracks, embedded below), Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic.  Check out the complete tracklist below, including a seven-part piece from Desplat and click the music player box to stream the first part, until an embed arrives.
