I’ve been waiting for this one all year.
With The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo hitting theaters in a few short weeks, so will the soundtrack from Academy Award winning composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
Oh yeah, isn’t that Reznor guy the mastermind behind that Nine Inch Nails band, too? Hmmm.
To give everyone a taste of what’s to come, Trent and Atticus drop the fucking awesome cover of Led Zeppelin’s classic Immigrant Song that you may have caught in the first trailer for the film earlier this year. Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs does the vocal duties, but she’s riding Trent and Atticus’ electro-shredded rhythms. It’s short, clocking in under 3 minutes, but it’s vicious and intense. And it’s finally here for your listening pleasures.
Best. Cover. Of. The. Year.
And here’s the original trailer, just in case you’re as excited to see this film as I am.
UPDATE 12/10- Pitchfork posted the official video directed by Dragon Tattoo filmmaker David Fincher here.
