The CD will be released globally on July 22, 2016. The album will be released digitally in the US and Canada on July 22, while in some territories the album will be released digitally on July 8. The US digital release contains a bonus track, a cover of the “Dream Weaver” performed by this year’s AMERICAN IDOL winner Trent Harmon.
“When I got the call to be a part of Ice Age: Collision Course, I was thrilled,” said Debney. “With a spirit of fun and great collaboration, we tried to create a score that is fun, a little outer spacey, and of course: full of heart.”
Scrat’s epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World. To save themselves, Sid, Manny, Diego, and the rest of the herd must leave their home and embark on a quest full of comedy and adventure, traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters.
“I’m a huge Ice Age fan and have been since the first film a few years back,” John Debney stated. “Anchored by Scrat’s crazy adventures, the Ice Age stories always seem to warm the hearts of millions around the world.”
“To now be a small part of the ‘family’ is a unique joy,” Debney added. “My friends at Blue Sky have yet again created a film of great heart as well as hilarious hijinks. The characters are timeless. I believe that this is my favorite ICE AGE film yet, and I truly hope the fans will enjoy the spirit of fun within the score.”
