Dallas-Buyers-Club-soundtrack.jpg

One of this fall’s most anticipated movies, The Dallas Buyers Club, tells the true story of Texas native Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey), whose 1986 HIV diagnosis, received in an era before treatment was readily available, spurred him to start his own prescription drug-smuggling ring.

The movie, which also stars Jared Leto, Steve Zahn, and Jennifer Garner, doesn’t open until this Friday, November 1, but you can stream the soundtrack exclusively here today. The album features brand new compositions by the likes of Tegan and Sara, My Morning Jacket, Fitz and the Tantrums, Neon Trees, Cold War Kids, and Leto’s own band Thirty Seconds to Mars. The album kicks off with Shuggie Otis’ stoned-soul anthem “Sweet Thang,” and also includes two classic T. Rex songs.

If you buy the album on iTunes (where it goes on sale today), 40 cents of every sale will go to the AIDS relief charity Project (RED)‘s Global Fund.  Jared Leto will be taking over Project (RED)’s Twitter account today at 11:30 AM Eastern/8:30 AM Pacific to answer questions about the movie, the soundtrack, and AIDS awareness.

But Young’s taste runs the gamut — from fellow North Carolinans the Avett Brothers (she’s originally from Asheville) to the New Wave worldbeat of Peter Gabriel. Here’s a smattering of what can be found on her iPod. READ FULL STORY
