Golden Globe Awards theme composed by Yoshiki to be released on iTunes in 111 countries


In celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards, the show’s musical theme, composed by Japan’s Yoshiki, will soon be available for download on iTunes. Written for the awards ceremony by the classically trained multi-instrumentalist and leader of one of Japan’s most successful rock groups, X-Japan, the theme will be available for download as a full-length digital single in 111 countries starting Jan 15, 2013. All proceeds from sales of the single will be donated to charity.

“It’s such an honor to be a part of this esteemed event which is enjoyed by hundreds of millions around the world,” said Yoshiki. “Composing this music was a journey that involved creating numerous versions in order to arrive at just the right sound to capture the unique combination of glamor and edginess that makes the Golden Globe Awards so entertaining. I’m very proud of the result and am thrilled that Warner Music has chosen to make it available around the world.”

Yoshiki recorded the theme, which opens the show and is used at other key moments during the broadcast, in his native Japan. He played many of the instruments himself before adding a full string orchestra.

The 70th Annual Golden Globe® Awards will air live coast-to-coast on NBC on Sunday, Jan 13, 2013 from the Beverly Hilton Hotel with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The Golden Globe Awards will be seen in more than 192 countries worldwide and is one of the few awards ceremonies that span both television and motion picture achievements.
