Someone somewhere deserves a huge pay rise for suggesting electronic music duo Daft Punk compose Tron: Legacy. It will be the first time they have ventured into the world of scoring full movies, but as their style fits so well with the Tron world i’m betting it will be a rather amazing debut.
According to MovieViral Disney Records will be releasing the ‘Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’ for Tron Legacy on November 22nd, which is roughly a month before the actual film is released.
The official site for the Daft Punk soundtrack (which has a cool track playing in the background) lets you pre-order either a digital copy for $9.99, or a CD version that includes an exclusive Daft Punk film poster and a “new track” for $39.98. The soundtrack was partly recorded at AIR Lyndhurst Studios in London with an orchestra featuring 100 musicians.
These promo tracks below have been on YouTube since July. They may or may not feature in the film, but if the whole soundtrack is anything like this i’m definitely buying a copy.
