 MORGAN CREEK'S 'WHITE SANDS' SOUNDTRACK TO CONTAIN
 PATRICK O'HEARN SCORE, DWIGHT YOAKAM SINGLE
 LOS ANGELES, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan Creek Records, home of the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Oscar-nominated soundtrack to "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," will release the soundtrack album to the desert adventure thriller "White Sands," starring Willem Dafoe, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Mickey Rourke and Mimi Rogers. Street date for the album, which features Dwight Yoakam, Patrick O'Hearn, Little Feat and Jimmie Wood & the Immortals is May 12.
 The film, directed by Roger Donaldson ("No Way Out") and produced by William Sackheim and Scott Rudin ("Pacific Heights"), is a mystery thriller about a small-town sheriff (Dafoe) who assumes the identity of the dead man in an attempt to solve a crime. He finds himself partnered with a charismatic underworld figure (Rourke) and a seductive adventuress (Mastrantonio) and in over his head in a multi-million dollar international sting operation. The movie opens at theaters nationwide on April 24.
 The first single from the soundtrack is by Yoakam, the multi- platinum country music neo-traditionalist who has done much to popularize country to a new generation, offering a new song and video -- "The Heart That You Own." The single will be serviced on March 27, and the video on April 6.
 According to Yoakam, "'The Heart That You Own' is about someone observing themselves snared in a trap of emotion that leaves them at the mercy of the person that they feel a love attaachment to. Dafoe's character is also somewhat trapped in an emotion in his romantic entanglements and is conscious of his predicaments."
 The movie's score was written and performed by O'Hearn, noted multi-instrumentalist and scoresmith known also for his work with Frank Zappa and Missing Persons, as well as his own solo albums. In the company of such luminaries as drummer Terry Bozzio and guitarist Warren Cuccurrullo (both from Zappa and Missing Persons camp) and keyboardist Michael Wolff ("Arsenio Hall Show"), O'Hearn creates sonic landscapes that aurally complement this adventure set in New Mexico. "Roger Donaldson is an extremely gifted filmmaker who provided a tremendous source of inspiration for composing the score," said O'Hearn.
 Little Feat also serves up a brand new track, "Quicksand & Lies." Feat leader Bill Payne says of the composition, "In a world of mixed signals, hidden agendas and individuals running loose in the name of patriotism to bend all semblance of laws and ethics, 'White Sands' and director Roger Donaldson have come along to provide Little Feat with some timely ammunition for a new song, 'Quicksand & Lies.'"
 Los Angeles roots rockers Jimmmie Wood & the Immortals contribute "Theresa." Wood is a noted session and club singer/harpist who appeared on Bruce Springsteen's "Tunnel of Love," as well as recordings by Public Image Ltd., Ofra Haza and Spinal Tap.
