The score to horror film Mandy arrives via Lakeshore/Invada.

The final score to be completed by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson before his death earlier this year will be released in September, Pitchfork reports.

The score for Mandy – a horror film directed by Panos Cosmatos  – will be released by Lakeshore/Invada on September 14. The film stars Nicholas Cage as a man who hunts down a cult responsible for the death of his wife.

“Jóhann went above and beyond, and I suspect to the limits of his sanity, to make the music for this movie,” Cosmatos says in a press release.

“His words and his actions made him more than a great collaborator, they made him like a brother to me. I’m sad our time together was so brief but I’m very proud of what he accomplished on Mandy and I believe he was too.”

Jóhannsson died in February at the age of 48. In March, his debut album Englabörn received a posthumous reissue with a collection of new remixes with the support and approval of his family.
