If Trent Reznor tweets it, it must be so: The Nine Inch Nails mastermind turned Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning film scorer announced via Twitter and NIN’s official website today that his second David Fincher film collaboration with Atticus Ross is now streaming previews of six tracks online.
We’ll let Reznor tell you himself. From his site: “For the last fourteen months Atticus and I have been hard at work on David Fincher’s ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.’ We laughed, we cried, we lost our minds and in the process made some of the most beautiful and disturbing music of our careers. The result is a sprawling three-hour opus that I am happy to announce is available for pre-order right now for as low as $11.99. The full release will be available in one week – December 9th.
“Visit iTunes here where you can immediately download Karen O’s and our version of Led Zepplin’s ‘Immigrant Song’ when you pre-order the soundtrack for $11.99.You will also be able to exclusively watch the legendary 8-minute trailer you may have heard about (no purchase necessary obviously). We scored this trailer separately from the film, BTW.”
According to an earlier tweet, the soundtrac will also be available in decidedly fancy analog form: “Working with @rob_sheridan and Neil Kellerhouse on a cool package to house the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack’s SIX vinyls.”
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo arrives in theaters on Christmas Day.
