Brave Soundtrack List Features Music by Birdy, Mumford & Sons, Julie Fowlis and Emma Thompson

Updated on May 27, 2013

Music From Disney Pixar Movie Brave

Thanks to Scottish folk musician and singer Julie Fowlis who has persistently crusaded to protect traditional Scottish Gaelic traditional music and now thanks to DIsney/Pixar, the music will travel beyond the Highland hills with Fowlis contributing two songs on the Brave Soundtrack List.

Oh so cute, and oh so Disney appropriate, is the addition of British musician, Birdy who at only 16 years of age, sports a full set of braces in a behind the scenes interview video about Brave where she talks about her excitement in getting to collaborate with Mumford & Sons on the track "Learn Me Right".

No one could be better suited and none more proud to score Brave than Scottish composer Patrick Doyle whose credits include Sense and Sensibility, Gosford Park, Dead Again, Frankenstein, Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire & Hamlet. Though Doyle has been nominated for Academy, BAFTA & Golden Globe Awards, he has yet to bring home an Oscar. So here's hoping the Brave O.S.T. will help him bring home a golden statuette.

Doyle was a frequent collaborator with Kenneth Branagh, Emma's Thompson's former suitor. I'm sure their association made it that much more comfortable for Thompson who's best known for her acting more than her singing when it came time for Thompson to sing "Noble Maiden Fair" with Peigl Barker.

Brave was initially released in Australia, New Zealand & Russia June 21, 2012 and in the U.S. was released on June 22, 2012.
