BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WaterTower Music has announced the February 3, 2017 CD and digital release of the soundtrack to the new animated adventure “The LEGO® Batman Movie,” one week before the film opens in theatres on February 10, 2017.

“Every scene is amazing. After the first day working on the film, I forgot it was an animation. It was as live action as anything I have worked on!”
The film’s director Chris McKay describes Balfe as “one of the most talented and versatile people I’ve ever met.”
“Chris is an encyclopedic reference for action hero films, but to him the important thing is the heart of the story, so I didn’t think of it as a comic, but as real, live action,” offers Balfe. "Every scene is amazing. After the first day working on the film, I forgot it was an animation. It was as live action as anything I have worked on!”
