Soundtrack Slice

Although this was a movie I wasn't sure I would enjoy (or even go see), after watching Snow White and the Huntsman I came away a) pretty impressed with the effort put into the film and b) really glad they picked Florence Welch to sing the epic soundtrack anthem "Breath of Life." It's a grandiose, intense kind of track - very much like the fantasy plot - and her bellowing holler, paired with a booming orchestra, nails the over-the-top concept.

The jury is still out on the actual film itself, but the verdict's in on the song; Florence can do no wrong. There's a subtle sweetness to the melody you'll hear when the beat of the drum and climbing instrumental quiets down; it's quite moving, really. Check it out:
