Ennio Morricone music fans herald new Decca record with unreleased tracks

To commemorate what the 92nd birthday of the late great Italian composer Ennio Morricone, his label Decca have collaborated with CAM Sugar to present Morricone Segreto, a brand-new collection featuring seven previously unreleased tracks.

The collection, which marks the unquestionably iconic Morricone’s first posthumous release, is available digitally and on CD/vinyl on 6th November.

The new release is a treasure trove of rare and forgotten pieces and alternate takes from the historical archives of CAM Sugar.

Morricone Segreto explores what is possibly Morricone’s richest creative period, between the end of the 1960s to the early 80s, demonstrating his long-lasting influence on generations of musicians and film directors to this day.

Featuring seven original pieces which have never been released before, the collection is an acid-tinged sonic journey through mysterious voices, fuzz guitars, airy strings, eerie synths and modern grooves from the composer who was always ahead of the trend, dictating style in his own way.

Listeners can hear a selection of scores where Morricone managed to create his unique and unmistakable style, blending an array of genres including avant-garde with the finest pop-psych sounds.

Highlights include extracts from Lui Per Lei, Stark System, La Smagliatura, and Il Clan Dei Siciliani.

Oscar-winning composer Morricone passed away at the age of 91 earlier this year. During an extraordinary career which spanned more than six decades, he created over 600 original soundtracks.

Behind his hugely celebrated film scores of Once Upon A Time In The West, Once Upon A Time In America, The Untouchables, The Mission, Cinema Paradiso, Hateful Eight and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is a hidden, eccentric side to his genius that is deeply appreciated amongst his fans, many other artists and connoisseurs.

Morricone Segreto is proof that even the most celebrated icons can hold musical secrets yet to be unveiled.

His legacy lives on through those he inspired and on the musical landscape he helped to shape throughout the 20th century and beyond.

Morricone Segreto is released on CAM Sugar and Decca Records Sugar on 6th November 2020
