Justin Lassen completes new soundtrack for Tyra Banks’ Modelland Release!

ModelLand1I’m happy to finally announce that I created a soundtrack for Tyra Banks’ new Modelland teaser! After a dozen or so variations and directions over the last couple of weeks, we were able to nail it perfectly for the vibe of her exciting fantasy series. I gave it an ambient/suspense/sci-fi/horror vibe… :)

The official teaser for Modelland! :)

ModelLand21The book is scheduled for release Tomorrow! September 2011, and they're already planning to turn it into a movie franchise.

"The story happens in a make-believe place called Modelland," says Tyra. "Every girl in the world wants to go there because it's where 'intoxibellas' are trained. Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce, and yeah, maybe they have some powers too. The story follows a teen girl and her friends who find themselves magically transported to Modelland, even though they're really not supposed to be there."

Interview with Tyra Banks about Modelland

It's for all the girls and guys who want a lot more FANTASY in their lives … and some fierceness and magic, romance and mystery, crazy and wild adventures, and yeah, some danger too…” –

You can check out the video, and her book at the Random House website (which has my music playing in the background!). I learned a lot on this production, and it was a neat opportunity to get a chance to do some work for a super model / actress/ mogul / talk show host and now fantasy writer. :) Congratulations Tyra!! :)
