February 03, 2018:
SUBMERGENCE was finally released in theatres in Spain and many other countries will follow through entire 2018. So far there is no official confirmation but at the end of the trailer it is possibly suggested the soundtrack might be available from WaterTower Records - if so it is expected around the U.S. release date of the film, which is currently set for April 13th. On the other hand it is very likely there might be an earlier European release as well, which is yet to be confirmed. You can at least watch the new trailer below.

January 19, 2018:
Three new albums are now available from QUARTET RECORDS - each with first 50 copies signed by the composer. In other news EL GUARDIAN INVISIBLE is now sold out and if you haven't got a copy yet and can find one for a reasonable price, do not hesitate.

December 30, 2017:
Quartet Records will start the new year with release of THREE scores composed by Fernando Velázquez. Besides previously announced release of animated movie DEEP, the label will also release two brand new scores: QUE BAJE DIOS Y LO VEA opens theatrically in Spain on January 5th, while THI MAI will be released only a week later. Specific release date is yet to be announced but the details will be posted as soon as available.

December 07, 2017:
Quartet Records has released THE ORPHANAGE as a special 10th Anniversary. Here is an excerpt from the announcement discussing reasons for the new recording of the score. For more information, tracklist, samples and to order your copy, visit Quartet Records.
It may seem unusual that a barely ten-year-old score is being re-recorded, but giving The Orphanage a second chance to shine is an undertaking of which Quartet Records is especially proud. This tenth-anniversary edition includes every note Fernando wrote for the film in its original conception to give fans a bold, new take on a modern classic. The original soundtrack album was negotiated and signed off before the recordings were made, and while Fernando wasn't quite satisfied with the performance, the album had to be released nonetheless. It was a problematic recording, without much possibility of correcting mistakes (do not forget that The Orphanage was a low-budget film). When the possibility of expanding the original 47-minute-long program was being discussed in early 2017, a review of the original multi-track recordings revealed that time hasn't been kind to Velázquez's first major score, so a new plan was formulated. The composer took it upon himself to revisit the project by doing a brand-new recording with the Euskadi Symphony Orchestra, the same ensemble he used for A Monster Calls, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,Submergence and his "Concert Suites" album. By using one of his favorite orchestras and his usual recording engineer, Marc Blanes, whom he couldn't use on his seminal score, Quartet Records and Fernando Velazquez present the same music he wrote a decade ago (including previously unrecorded alternates), using the know-how and skills he has gained in the past 10 years to bring fans a new recording of which we can all be proud.

November 24, 2017:
While previously announced reissue of EL ORFANATO is getting slightly delayed and should be available early next month, Quartet Records has already announced another Fernando Velázquez's release - his score for 2017 animated movie DEEP, which should be available in January. More information will be added as soon as available.

November 01, 2017:
As has been previously announced Quartet Records will release special anniversary edition of THE ORPHANAGE featuring complete score running over 70 minutes. The album will be available on CD at the end of November and at the end of December as a 2xLP DeLuxe Gatefold edition.

October 21, 2017:
MARROWBONE was released yesterday and you can get a copy through most specialized retailers. Visit Quartet Records for the details and samples. The CD edtion includes 4 bonus tracks not available digitally. Here is an exceprt from the description: Fernando Velázquez has composed one of his most special, extensive and complex scores. It encompasses the sound of Gothic terror, full-blooded romanticism, lovely pastoral passages and a return to the openly symphonic sound that we miss in other current scores. Skillfully and precisely performed by the Asturias Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the composer. The CD includes 4 bonus tracks not included in the digital release, and the package features a 16-page booklet with in-depth liner notes and a track-by-track analysis by the film's director, Sergio G. Sánchez.
The movie, produced by J.A. Bayona, will be released next Friday and Spain and you can watch the trailer below.

October 06, 2017:
QUARTET RECORDS has updated their section of upcoming releases, which will include two Fernando Velázquez's scores during the next 2 months. While in October the label will release his brand new score for upcoming thriller MARROWBONE (check out the trailer on Youtube), November will see reissue of his long out of print score for J. A. Bayona's THE ORPHANAGE. For more information visit, Quartet Records and check back for details, which will be posted as soon as available.

August 19, 2017:
Little heads-up regarding a couple Fernando Velázquez's scores available on Quartet Records:

CRIMSON PEAK is one of our bestsellers (especially in digital), and we have the rights for 25 years, so it's probably the physical CD will be back in stock at some point, but we can not guarantee when. Anyway, Amazon and other retails still have it in stock.  With current films, we need to be cautious, it's very expensive to keep these in stock if the album does not sell well. CONTRATIEMPO, for example, we have reached to 500 with dificulty, and it's enough. The same with GERNIKA and others. If the film is not too popular, the score is relegated to the collectors niche, and 500 (sometimes 1000) is a high number even for Velázquez. But all these are also available in digital, and could come back on CD if there is a considerable demand.

April 11, 2017:
Fernando Velázquez recently recorded his score for upcoming thriller EL SECRETO DE MARROWBONE with Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias (OSPA). You can watch brief video from the sessions featuring a few clips from the score as well as short interview with the composer (in Spanish only). The movie will be released in Spain on October 27th.

Ledgard and tells the story of a water engineer who is taken hostage in Somalia by Jihadist fighters who suspect that he is a British spy. Erin Dignam (The Yellow Handkerchief, The Last Face) wrote the screenplay. The movie is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere later this year.

The movie revolves around four children who hide from the world after their mother's death on a farm that holds a terrible secret. Sanchez also wrote the screenplay. J.A. Bayona is producing the project with Alvaro Augustin (Pan's Labyrinth, Agora), Belen Atienza and Ghislain Barros.

Varese Sarabande announced their limited edition release of THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX original score by Fernando Velázquez. The CD is part of Varese's Limited edition series and is limited to 1000 copies only. The movie has been also released as Video on demand today. Info from Varese Sarabande Records and tracklist follow:

"This score is exactly why we created our Limited Edition series of CDs, separate from the CD Club, which is for scores from the past.  THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX is an epic new score by Fernando Velázquez, best known for his scores from The Orphanage, Devil, The Impossible and Mama.   The Adventurer had to be released.  The film, on the other hand, has barely been released, so you probably have not heard of it, but if you like grand, sweeping symphonic adventure and good old fashioned mystery in your film music, this is a soundtrack for you! Ancient mysteries. Powerful evil. And a fearless hero's quest through a fantastical realm of steam-powered wonders and sinister magic.
In THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX, seventeen-year-old Mariah Mundi's life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Following a trail of clues to the darkly majestic Prince Regent Hotel, Mariah discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long-lost artifact that grants limitless wealth - but also devastating supernatural power. With the fate of his world, and his family at stake, Mariah will risk everything to unravel the Curse of the Midas Box!"
