White Boy Rick-a new true crime film starring Matthew McConaughey and featuring appearances by Danny Brown and YG-has gotten its official soundtrack release. The film was scored by Max Richter, who has previously contributed music to Shutter Island, Arrival, and more. Stream it in its entirety below. A vinyl edition of the score is set to be released November 30 (via StudioRichter/Deutsche Grammophon). White Boy Rick hit U.S. theaters earlier this month on September 4. The film's story is of teenager Richard Wershe Jr., who became an undercover informant for the FBI during the 1980s and was ultimately arrested for drug-trafficking and sentenced to life in prison.  Directed by Yann Demange

Early last year, Richter released his score for choreographer Wayne McGregor's narrative dance performance "Woolf Works."      PHOTO: Scott Garfield/Columbia Pictures and Studio 8
