Legendary Italian composer Ennio Morricone is particularly renowned for his scores for western films - most notably 'The Good, The Bad and the Ugly' and 'Once Upon a Time in the West'.

It's been decades since he last undertook scoring a western, however, but that has changed with his new score for Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight'.

The full soundtrack is due out this Friday via Jack White's label Third Man Records, but until then you can get a taster of the seven-minute long 'L’Ultima Diligenza di Red Rock – Versione Integrale' below.

The film itself is out in Ireland on January 8th.

The 87-year-old Ennio Morricone plays Dublin's 3Arena on February 14th.
