Milan Records has released THE PEASANTS (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) by Lukasz “L.U.C.” Rostkowski and Rebel Babel Film Orchestra. Available everywhere now, the album features an original score by award-winning producer, vocalist, composer, songwriter Lukasz “L.U.C.” Rostkowski and his international Rebel Babel Film Orchestra for the painted animation film based on Polish writer Wladyslaw Reymont's Nobel Prize-winning novel of the same name. For the score, L.U.C. drew inspiration from the film’s Polish origins, utilizing rare Slavic folk instruments, like the Belarussian Bagpipes, to build beautifully expansive themes and bringing together a special line-up of musicians, including a Ukrainian Refugee Choir, for his transcultural big band Rebel Babel Film Orchestra to record the album. Making its debut today in celebration of the film’s US theatrical release is a never-before-heard version of album closer “End of Summer” performed in English by Georgian-British singer-songwriter Katie Melua – listen here. Originally making its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, The Peasants debuts in theaters today from Sony Pictures Classics. Click here for theatre/ release information.

The Peasants tells the story of Jagna, a young woman determined to forge her own path within the confines of a late 19th century Polish village – a hotbed of gossip and on-going feuds, held together, rich and poor, by pride in their land, adherence to colourful traditions and deep-rooted patriarchy. When Jagna finds herself caught between the conflicting desires of the village’s richest farmer, his eldest son, and other leading men of the community, her resistance puts her on a tragic collision course with the community around her.
