Before Midnight, out May 24, will finally show the culmination of the years-long attraction between Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) that started with 1995’s Before Sunrise and famously only teased an answer in 2004’s Before Sunset.
The film’s 14-song soundtrack by composer Graham Reynolds, who previously worked with director Richard Linklater on Bernie and A Scanner Darkly, is also the first score for the franchise, and features songs by Haris Alexiou and Nikos Kalogeropoulos.
The result is a mix of piano, upright bass, acoustic guitar, and vibraphone — and the resulting sounds are alternately familiar and adventurous, and often both.
The Before Midnight soundtrack will be available on May 21 through iTunes, but you can stream it in its entirety exclusively below:
