Sunshine: Music from the Motion Picture is the soundtrack album for the 2007 Danny Boyle film Sunshine. It is a joint composition by the electronic band Underworld and film score composer John Murphy. Underworld has a long history of collaboration with Boyle, having been featured on the soundtracks of Boyle's Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary, and The Beach. Murphy composed the scores to Boyle's 28 Days Later and Millions.
The Sunshine soundtrack also includes "Avenue of Hope'" a song released by I Am Kloot two years before its inclusion in the film, and "Peggy Sussed" by Underworld. These tracks are featured during the film's end credits.
The soundtrack release was held up for over a year with lawyers trying to resolve unspecified legal issues. However, on 10 September 2008, Underworld announced that the soundtrack was to be released in digital format shortly. On 25 November 2008 the soundtrack was finally released exclusively through the iTunes Store. On 14 February 2009 the album was re-released on iTunes in DRM-free iTunes Plus format. A remastered version of "Adagio in D Minor" was released by John Murphy in 2012. Although available for purchase via iTunes, Murphy announced that anyone signing up to his site's newsletter would receive a free Mp3 copy, along with a copy of the remastered "In the House - In a Heartbeat".
Various tracks from the album have been featured in other media. Avenue of Hope appears on an I Am Kloot album, as does Underworld's "To Heal", of which "Capa Meets the Sun" is a variation.
"Adagio in D Minor"
The most common tracks adapted for other media are "Sunshine (Adagio in D Minor)", and "Kaneda's Death Pt. 2 (Adagio in D Minor)". Variations of the adagio's progression appear in many films, television programs, trailers, and adverts.
