Acclaimed contemporary film composer Clint Mansell
returns to score Ben Wheatley’s brand new film ‘Happy

Mansell’s score is a hypnotic and ethereal wash, built

download card included. The score is pressed on ‘Off
White’ coloured vinyl.
Clint Mansell is known for his work on ‘Black Mirror:
San Junipero’, ‘Moon’, ‘Pi’,
