The obvious selling point of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is Daniel Day-Lewis in what is sure to be another classic, scene-stealing performance. And then there’s the all star cast and director that are involved. But another crucial part of this movie is John Williams. Williams is responsible for scoring every Spielberg movie to date, with the exception of The Color Purple, and the collaboration has produced some of the best scores in cinema history.

The soundtrack will be released on November 6th, and the film on November 9th.
