Nick Cave & Warren Ellis – “War Machine”

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds/Grinderman bandmate Warren Ellis composed the score for War Machine, an upcoming movie that’ll debut on Netflix this Friday (5/26) and stars Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, Topher Grace, and more. The soundtrack for the film will be released on the same day, and today you can hear a selection from it. “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,” the two of them said in a press release. “It was a great pleasure to work with David Michôd, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favorite score!” Listen via Pitchfork below.
