Isle of Dogs marks his fourth score for the director, a partnership that has also included Fantastic Mr. Foxand Moonrise Kingdom. Also included on the OST are songs from Akira Kurosawa’s classic Japanese tales Seven Samurai and Drunken Angel; the Toho Symphony Orchestra recorded a new version of Seven Samurai’s Kanbei and Katsushiro — Kikuchiyo’s Mambo” specifically as a nod to Kurosawa. The soundtrack is rounded out by selections from The West Cost Pop Art Experimental Band (1966’s I Won’t Hurt You) and The Sauter-Finegan Orchestra (1952’s Midnight Sleighride).
