M83 – “Oblivion” (Feat. Susanne Sundfør)
The new post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie Oblivion, with Tom Cruise, looks like it could actually be pretty great, and one of the reasons is a whole bunch of new original music from M83, whose Anthony Gonzalez also composed the score alongside the arranger and Daft Punk Tron: Legacy collaborator Joseph Trapanese. (Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is also the man behind Oblivion, so credit this guy with having great taste in French electronic musicians.) We’ve already posted the M83 soundtrack instrumental “StarWaves,” and now we get to hear “Oblivion,” a slow, stately, and gorgeous six-minute collaboration with the Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør. Stream it below.
The Oblivion soundtrack is out 4/9 on Back Lot.
