HOLLYWOOD, April 23, 2001 - Elektra Entertainment Group and Paramount Pictures are proud to announce the upcoming release of the soundtrack album of the summer, Music From The Motion Picture Tomb Raider, scheduled to hit stores June 5, 2001.  The disc precedes the June 15, 2001 release of the highly anticipated epic action-adventure, Tomb Raider, starring Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie. 

This live action feature is directed by Simon West and inspired by the most successful interactive video game character in history - Lara Croft (Jolie).  Beautiful and brainy, Lara is the heroine of Eidos Interactive’s phenomenally successful Tomb Raider game series.  It is one woman’s fearless quest criss-crossing the globe, in an amazing attempt to save the world in this summer's most highly anticipated movie.

The Elektra soundtrack, brilliantly assembled by music supervisor Peter Afterman and Elektra Vice-President Soundtracks / A&R, John Kirkpatrick, explodes with the same intensity and excitement with a slew of superstar artists eager to contribute to the Tomb Raider phenomenon, including U2, nine inch nails, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott with Nelly Furtado, OutKast, Moby, Fatboy Slim and The Chemical Brothers, among others.

U2 kicks off the star-studded collection with the first single, Tomb Raider Mix of "Elevation," available exclusively on this soundtrack. The band recently shot a video for the song, directed by Joseph Khan, who has directed videos for Destiny's Child and Wu Tang Clan, among others, and it is to feature a set that would wow even the most ardent Tomb Raider fans.

The film and soundtrack album also feature the song "Deep," by Grammy Award-winner Trent Reznor/nine inch nails.  Expected to reach radio stations in mid-May, the track will be the second single off of the soundtrack.
