The Title for the Need for Speed Movie Trailer Music and Song

What's the song and music featured in the first official trailer for the movie Need for Speed starring Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots and Dominic Cooper? The fact that you have arrived at this page means you are in need of an answer for the question just mentioned. Well, the song's title is Sarajevo and it's a composition by well-known British composer Max Richter. It's a track from Richter's album Memoryhouse which was released in 2002. The album was re-released in 2009.

Memoryhouse contains eighteen tracks. If you liked the sound of Saravejo, you are going to love all eighteen tracks in the album. BBC Music did not describe the album as "a masterpiece in neoclassical composition" for nothing. Combining ambient sounds, poetry readings and voices, the songs in Memoryhouse are great sounds that can be used in almost anything. Aside from Saravejo, some of the best tracks in the album include Last Days and November.

If you have seen the documentary called Auschwitz: The Nazis and the Final Solution which was aired by the BBC in 2005, then you are familiar with Memoryhouse (although you may not be aware of it) as four tracks from the album were used in the six-part documentary. These tracks are Europe After the Rain, Fragment, The Twins (Prague) and Embers.

Other record albums by Max Richter that you might want to check out are The Blue Notebooks (2004), Songs from Before (2006), 24 Postcards in Full Colour (2008) and his latest Infra (2010).

Need for Speed isn't the first major movie to use Saravejo in its trailer. The track was also used in the international trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus.

Scheduled to be released on March 14, 2014, Need for Speed is a film adaptation of the popular video game series of the same name by Electronic Arts. The screenplay was written by John Gatins and George Nolfi. It was directed by Scott Waugh. Need for Speed will be Waugh's second feature film. His first was 2012's action flick Act of Valor.

Joining Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul in the main cast are Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Ramon Rodriguez, rapper Kid Cudi, Rami Malek, Michael Keaton, Harrison Gilbertson and Dakota Johnson. The film's score will feature music composed by Nathan Furst (A Moment of Confusion, Act of Valor, Lake Placid 2).
