This soundtrack, better be released ASAP.
and a side note. this movie is GIANT PUNCH on those whitewashing assholes.

<3 This movie really shows the love and respect and understanding of the source material, even though giving it an alternated retelling. Thank God its Good. And so his the soundtrack, inspired in Kenji Kawai way, and mixing a bit with retro electronic. Its a wonderful soundtrack and so fitting.

Lakeshore canceled it, sadly. There's a slim chance some other label might pick it up eventually but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Is there any information about the reason for cancellation? Something with the rights to the music?

No, nothing specific or rather in the form of an official statement. Tracksounds tweet is the best piece of info that currently exists (closest to the source). I believe the info is correct (though I wish it wasn't). These quiet cancellations do happen.

Maybe there were some music production issues. As far as I know, only Mansell was attached to the project but practically around the Japanese premiere it turns out Lorne Balfe wrote music as well. Could be that some of Mansell's music wasn't used, could be they needed more cues, who knows how the score and score album business went down (edit: still, Balfe insists on his Facebook it was a collaboration effort).

If anything, there's still the cover image on Lakeshore's site (uploaded in March) which kind of suggests Balfe's addition perhaps wasn't all that planned. Oh well...

Spoiler:

It's not as simple at that, in the world in crazy legal matters.
