TORONTO, ONTARIO (January 26, 2021) – Continuing to reconceptualize iconic soundtrack themes with style and substance, HAUSER today releases a new track and video for his rendition of “For The Love Of A Princess,” originally composed by Academy Award® winner James Horner as a musical highlight from the epic 1996 Best Picture® winner Braveheart. Available everywhere now, HAUSER taps into the emotional heft of the composition with a poignant cello performance underscored by elegant strings in a soaring homage. To compliment today’s release, HAUSER also shares a new video for the track filmed in his home of Croatia. Sitting in the center of towering mountains, he conjures the sweeping energy of the song as the camera circles from close-ups of his performance to wide angles of the natural wonder around him – watch here.
HAUSER exhibits deep reverence for the work of late great composer Horner and his original score, which received an Academy® Award nod in the category of “Best Original Dramatic Score.”
Of “For The Love Of A Princess,” HAUSER says, “The music of composer James Horner is so iconic, and I’ve always loved playing this beautiful song on the cello. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I love performing it!”
HAUSER has carried his recent success into 2021. Available everywhere now, he capped off last year with the EP HAUSER PLAYS MORRICONE, which revisits, reimagines and recharges eight instantly recognizable compositions from the Academy Award®-winning catalogue of arguably the most prolific and influential film composer of all time Ennio Morricone. Additionally, he unveiled the deluxe CD & DVD edition of his Sony Classical solo debut Classic – available here. It includes the original album in its entirety, plus a video disc containing a newly-edited longform program comprised of his three “Alone, Together” performance events. He also filmed and unveiled a dedicated video for each track. Within six months, music from Classic has already amassed over 100 million combined audio streams and video views. Working hard to consistently release new videos and content, HAUSER has continued to engage new fans across the globe, this year reaching more than 12 million followers across his socials and averaging nearly 350 million monthly impressions, putting HAUSER in a league occupied by only the most popular of music artists.
HAUSER’s story begins as a very young child in the town of Pula, Croatia, where he found himself so transfixed by the sound of a cello that he was moved to gather whatever he could around him to try to make the instrument himself, in the hopes that he could learn its mechanisms and recreate that very same magical sound. His impatience to master the cello survived his childlike attempt to build one, as the dynamic young cellist has since rocketed to fame as half of the global, genre-busting musical sensation 2CELLOS. With the release of Classic, HAUSER has realized maybe the best of all possible musical dreams that dazzled that little Croatian boy.
