Published May 22, 2017War Machine is arriving on Netflix this week, and to give us an idea what we can expect from the score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, you can now hear a bit of what the cinematic pair have cooked up.
Down below, you can hear Cave and Ellis's "War Machine" [via Pitchfork] ahead of their full soundtrack, which arrives Friday (May 26) via Lakeshore Records/Invada.
The film itself will also arrive on Netflix this Friday. As previously reported, it was written and directed by David Michôd and stars Brad Pitt, Ben Kingsley, Topher Grace, Emory Cohen, Tilda Swinton and Lakeith Stanfield.
In a statement, Cave and Ellis said the following about their musical contribution:
Together we made a score that was both light and dark, propulsive and meditative at the same time. We developed a kind of 'spiritual electronics' that captured both the melancholy and the terrible absurdity of the Afghan war. It was a great pleasure to work with David Michôd, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favourite score!
