At the Movies: Puss in Boots

Puss in Boots, the latest computer-animated film from DreamWorks, opened in theaters today. The film was directed by Chris Miller and features the voices of Antonio Banderas, Billy Bob Thornton and Salma Hayek. It has been released in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D.

The soundtrack was composed by Henry Jackman and features tracks by Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. The Lady Gaga track used to promote the film is not on the album. The album is currently available as a digital download. The CD version is scheduled for release on November 15, 2011.

The cover art for the album features a dramatic close up image of the film’s main character. It is an excellent design for the soundtrack. The texture effects used for the hat are very impressive.

New and Notable: William Shatner

A new album from actor, author and recording artist William Shatner was released last week. Seeking Major Tom features Shatner doing his inimitable spoken word versions of popular songs with musical assistance from musicians such as Peter Frampton, Lyle Lovett, Johnny Winter, Brad Paisley, Steve Miller, Sheryl Crow, Wayne Kramer, Dave Davies, Zakk Wylde and others.

A video for Shatner’s version of Bohemian Rhapsody has gone viral on YouTube with over a half million views. The video features an unpackaging demontration for the CD at the end. It is the first time I have seen anyone do that. Those of you who are more interested in marketing and package design than Shatner’s reading of Queen’s lyrics may want to forward to the last few seconds.

Album cover for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way The Remix revealed

The cover for the forthcoming remix album of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way has been revealed. The album is scheduled to be released on November 21, 2011.

The cover features a black and white photograph of Lady Gaga sitting in what appears to be a melted gown with a high heeled shoe dangling from her mouth. As strange as it is, I prefer it to the motorcycle morph madness that was used for the cover of the original Born This Way album.
