The Chemical Brothers are getting into the celebrity-composer act, which has become increasingly popular thanks to high sales of Daft Punk’s awesome soundtrack for TRON: Legacy and Trent Reznor’s equally awesome, Oscar-winning score for The Social Network. Now the recent Grammy nominees have put the entire score for Hanna up on Myspace for fans to listen to — and, in addition to some appropriately moody cinematic stuff, there are also plenty of reminders that this was composed by guys who will be owning Coachella this year. Head over to Myspace for a listen or watch the Hanna trailer (featuring the track “Container Park”) below.
The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana, looks promising, in large part thanks to the energetic thrill of the soundtrack (check out “Escape 700” and “The Devil Is In The Beats” for a couple of the dancier tracks). Even if it was basically just a two-hour music video featuring a young girl running and kicking ass set to Chemical Brothers music, we’d probably be okay with that. Think we might get a remix of Hanna like the upcoming TRON: Legacy R3CONFIGUR3D?
The Chemical Brothers also did a number of tracks for Black Swan, which haven’t been given a full proper release (but check out “Don’t Think” below). Will they be playing selections from Hanna at Coachella? Are we reaching an era where masses of thousands will be dancing to a film score? Because that’s pretty incredible. (And hard to imagine happening at any other time in history — did anyone rave to the score from Shakespeare In Love? Probably not.)
The Hanna soundtrack will be available for purchase on iTunes this Tuesday, while the film is due April 8.
