Paul Weller has released the soundtrack to an upcoming boxing film, Jawbone. Weller’s ‘score’ is chilled and stripped back, similar to tracks such as These City Streets and In the Car…, from Weller’s last album, Saturns Pattern.

The soundtrack features the following seven songs:

  1. Jimmy / Blackout
  2. The Ballad Of Jimmy McCabe
  3. Jawbone
  4. Bottle
  5. Jawbone Training
  6. Man On Fire
  7. End Fight Sequence

Jawbone is a semi-autobiographical film about Jimmy McCabe, a former youth boxing champion that has fallen on hard times. According to the movie’s press release, Jimmy is “desperately in search of hope but looking in all the wrong places.” When he runs out of options, he turns to the sport that he devoted his formative years to, with help of gym owner Bill, and corner-man Eddie. Jawbone features stars such as Ray Winstone (Scum, Quadrophenia), Ian McShane (Deadwood, Pirates of the Caribbean), Michael Smiley (Black Mirror, Svengali) and Johnny Harris (This is England, The Fades).

The soundtrack is available from the official Warner store at: http://eurostore.warnermusic.com/uk/artists/paul-weller.html

Jawbone is in cinemas 12th May 2017.
