As you probably already know, Anthony Gonzales (M83) scored the soundtrack to the new Tom Cruise flick, Oblivion, along with Joseph Trapanese (who helped Daft Punk with Tron: Legacy).  Though the physical release is next week (April 9th), you can now stream the entire soundtrack at Pretty Much Amazing. Enjoy


[on repeat] M83//Oblivion (Feat. Susanne Sundfør)


A couple of weeks ago, we were treated to the instrumental “StarWaves” (stream it here), our first taste of M83’s upcoming film score for Oblivion.  Today we get the title track, featuring some excellent vocals from the Norwegian songstress, Susanne Sundfør.  M83 is two for two so far and I can’t wait to the score in it’s entirety, which will be available on April 9th, with the movie following on April 19th.
