LOS ANGELES, March 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Back Lot Music released the soundtrack album for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time, it was announced today. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack includes new music by Emmy Award-nominated composer Christopher Lennertz, as well as songs featured in the new comedy. The soundtrack, which launches on the same day that the film hits theaters, provides the perfect companion piece to the biggest, Greekest wedding this decade.
About writing the score for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Lennertz said, "I come from a big Italian family on my mom's side, so this felt familiar to me. I loved being able to continue this story that so many people loved from the first film and take it even further in a more emotional direction with [Toula and Ian's] daughter. I used a lot of traditional Greek instruments in non-traditional ways to give a subconscious feeling to the ethnic influence."
