With major motion picture soundtracks like The Theory of Everything under his belt, Academy Award-nominated composer Johann Johannsson is back with "Heptapod B," a song from his next film project. The song will be featured in the new sci-fi movie Arrival, starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, and it's premiering exclusively on Billboard. "'Heptapod B' is featured in a montage sequence which demonstrates the various methods that Louise [Adams] and Ian [Renner] use to decipher the aliens' language," Johannsson tells Billboard. "It's one of the first pieces I wrote for the film, and it kind of defined the sound of the more kinetic, action-oriented parts of the score."
