Jeff Russo composed the musical arrangement for the new version of the Beatles’ classic.
“We spend a lot of time in Lucy’s mind,” Jeff Russo explained. “We spend a lot of time dealing with her on an emotional level and trying to track her emotional journey from her experience in space to the culmination of her journey at the end of the movie. Finding the right melodies for her and the right sound to push and pull, and pressure and release … it was a maze for me to get through. But we got there.”
