(New York, NY) Atlantic Records has announced the release of “THE BIRTH OF A NATION: THE INSPIRED BY ALBUM,” the unprecedented musical companion to the landmark film from Fox Searchlight Pictures. The album arrives at all online retailers today; THE BIRTH OF A NATION opens in theaters everywhere on Friday, October 7th.
THE BIRTH OF A NATION is among the most anticipated new films and the winner of both the “Grand Jury Prize” and “Audience Award” at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival amidst unparalleled and enthusiastic critical acclaim. “THE BIRTH OF A NATION: THE INSPIRED BY ALBUM” is as powerful and creative as the award-winning film itself, gathering exclusive new material from some of 21st century black music’s most essential artists (see attached tracklisting). The album features 16 authentic tracks inspired by THE BIRTH OF A NATION, from such remarkable artists as Nas, Lil Wayne, Trey Songz, Gucci Mane, Pusha T, Meek Mill, Wale, Ne-Yo, The Game, 2 Chainz, K. Michelle, Leon Bridges and more.

“THE BIRTH OF A NATION: THE INSPIRED BY ALBUM” was conceived by the film’s writer, director, and star Nate Parker to help “bridge the gap between 1831 and 2016 in a way that would allow young people to connect to Nat Turner's legacy.”


“By curating a group of the best contemporary artists to sonically express their feelings of the film,” he says, “the hope was fans would recognize the connection and be curious to know more. (Atlantic Records Chairman and Chief Executive Officer) Craig Kallman, Kevin Weaver (Atlantic Records President of Film & Television) and I spoke with the artists, offering them a platform to address issues they otherwise may never have had the path to address. I believe what has emerged is a series of honest, unfiltered feelings regarding where we were, where we are, and where we ultimately could be with the right collective disposition. I honestly couldn't be more excited to share their Nat Turner-inspired feelings and truths with the world.”
“THE BIRTH OF A NATION: THE INSPIRED BY ALBUM” was produced by Nate Parker, Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO and GRAMMY® Award-winning Craig Kallman and Atlantic Records President of Film & TV and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Kevin Weaver (Suicide Squad, Furious 7, Boardwalk Empire, The Fault In Our Stars).

ABOUT THE BIRTH OF A NATION

Set against the antebellum South and based on a true story, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher whose financially strained owner Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer) accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities - against himself, his wife Cherry (Aja Naomi King), and fellow slaves - Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.


THE BIRTH OF A NATION is directed by Nate Parker from his own screenplay and story by Parker and Jean McGianni Celestin. Produced by Nate Parker, Kevin Turen, Jason Michael Berman, Aaron L. Gilbert, and Preston L. Holmes, the film stars Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Mark Boone Jr., Colman Domingo, Aunjanue Ellis, Dwight Henry, Aja Naomi King, Esther Scott, Roger Guenveur Smith, and Gabrielle Union, with Penelope Ann Miller and Jackie Earle Haley.
