About David Arnold:
Member of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA), while attending a Sixth Form College in Luton, Arnold became friends with director Danny Cannon. Cannon initially created short films for which Arnold was asked to write the music. The two made their respective major film debuts with The Young Americans (1993). "Play Dead", a song from the film with singer Björk, charted #12 in the UK. The following year he scored Stargate and Last of the Dogmen (1995), with excerpts from the former ranking third in the most commonly used soundtrack cues for film trailers.

Arnold then composed music for Stargate director Roland Emmerich's next two movies, Independence Day (1996) and Godzilla (1998), as well as four movies for director John Singleton. In addition, he has scored various comedies, dramas, and nineteenth-century period pieces, as well as providing music for several British television shows. In 2010, he composed the music for Come Fly With Me, a British television series from the producers of Little Britain.

Arnold was a Bond fan from an early age and also a fan of Bond composer John Barry. In 1997, Arnold produced Shaken and Stirred: The David Arnold James Bond Project, an album featuring new versions of the themes from various James Bond films. John Barry, the composer of many of the themes on the album, was complimentary about Arnold's interpretation of his work. Barry contacted Barbara Broccoli, producer of the then-upcoming Tomorrow Never Dies, to recommend Arnold as the film's composer.

Arnold was hired to score the installment, and he has since scored the four subsequent films: The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. A part of his composition on Casino Royale has been reused in Skyfall (2012).

In February 2011, it was announced that he was appointed Musical Director for the 2012 Olympic Games and the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.
