Atlantic Has Something in the Air Tonight; "MIAMI VICE: THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" Set for Release on July 25th

Includes Nonpoint's Electrifying Cover of Phil Collins' Classic, Alongside Tracks From Mogwai, India.Arie, Goldfrapp, and More

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2006 --Atlantic Records has announced details of the upcoming release, "MIAMI VICE: THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK." The album arrives in stores on July 25th, followed on July 28th by the nationwide release of the Universal Pictures crime drama.

The first single from "MIAMI VICE: THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" will be Lava/Atlantic recording group Nonpoint's cover of the Phil Collins classic, "In The Air Tonight." The original version of the song, which was featured in the first episode of the original "Miami Vice" TV series, appeared on Collins' breakthrough 1981 Atlantic solo debut, "FACE VALUE." Nonpoint, which is based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, will perform the song at the film's Miami premiere on July 25th.

In addition, "MIAMI VICE: THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" includes a wide variety of sonic styles, from electronica and soul to salsa and post-rock. Among the artists featured are India.Arie, Goldfrapp, Mogwai, Nina Simone, Emilio Estefan, King Britt, and Moby, who is joined on one track by the legendary Patti LaBelle (track listing below). The album also includes selections from the film's original score, composed by John Murphy ("28 Days Later," "Snatch") and Klaus Badelt ("Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," "Ultraviolet"). The Soundtrack Producer is Michael Mann; the Executive Soundtrack Producer is Kathy Nelson.

The cocaine cowboys of the '80s are gone, but Miami's Casablanca allure, the undercover cops and the attitudes of Michael Mann's culturally influential television series have been enhanced by time in the feature film version of "Miami Vice."

Ricardo Tubbs (Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx of "Ray," "Jarhead") is urbane and dead smart. He lives with Bronx-born intel analyst Trudy, played by British actress Naomie Harris ("28 Days Later," "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest"), as they work undercover transporting drug loads into South Florida to identify a group responsible for three murders.

Sonny Crockett (Colin Farrell of "S.W.A.T.," "The New World") [to the untrained eye, his presentation may seem unorthodox, but procedurally he is sound] is charismatic and flirtatious until -- while undercover working with the supplier of the South Florida group -- he gets romantically entangled with Isabella, the Chinese-Cuban girlfriend of an arms and drugs trafficker. Isabella is played by the Chinese actress Gong Li ("Raise the Red Lantern," "Memoirs of a Geisha").

The best undercover identity is oneself with the volume turned up and restraint unplugged. The intensity of this case pushes Crockett and Tubbs out onto the edge where identity and fabrication become blurred, where cop and player become one -- especially for Crockett in his romance with Isabella and for Tubbs in the provocation of an assault on those he loves.

"Miami Vice," as a large-scale feature film, liberates what is adult, dangerous and alluring about working deeply undercover... especially when Crockett and Tubbs go to where their badges don't count.

"Miami Vice" stars Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx, Gong Li, Naomie Harris, Ciarán Hinds, Justin Theroux, Barry Shabaka Henley and Luis Tosar, and is written and directed by Michael Mann, who also produces along with Pieter Jan Brugge; Anthony Yerkovich serves as executive producer.
