Tonight we featured three tracks from The Shack. The album features music from the film and also songs inspired by the themes of the film. Paul Buckmaster, who died on 7th of November, worked in pop, rock, classical and country music, orchestrating the tracks. His nearly fifty year career included working with Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Guns & Roses, Carly Simon, David Bowie, Michael Buble and many others.
