    Angelina Jolie, Graham King Films and Varese Sarabande Records have announced that a portion of the proceeds from the In the Land of Blood and Honey soundtrack will be donated to SOS Children's Villages in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The film is Jolie's directorial debut.

    The donation is given in support of the critically needed programs that SOS Children's Villages provides in Bosnia and Herzegovina to children, youth and families still suffering from lingering effects of the 1990s war in the Balkans. In her directorial debut, Ms. Jolie worked with actors from the region whose personal experiences during the war helped inform and shape the film.

    The mother of Brad Pitt's six kids stated, "We are happy that a portion of the proceeds from the film's soundtrack will support SOS Children's Villages in Bosnia and Herzegovina to provide stable, family-based homes to children, regardless of religion, ethnicity or gender, who do not have their own families to care for them."

    The soundtrack was produced by Angelina Jolie, Robert Townson and Academy Award-winning composer Gabriel Yared. The soundtrack echoes themes from the film and includes a selection of songs from the Balkans. Two featured songs are "Miss Sarajevo" and "When the Heart Dies." First released by U2 in 1995, "Miss Sarajevo" is performed by Luciano Pavarotti and Passengers. "When the Heart Dies" by award winning composer Gabriel Yared is performed by acclaimed singer and actress Natasa Mirkovic-De Ro and also features Rade Serbedzija, Dado Dzihan and BOMBAJ STAMPA.

    The soundtrack is currently available digitally through iTunes and the CD will be released on Jan. 10, 2012.
