The theatrical release of David Fincher’s take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo looms ever closer, which explains that creeping dread you’ve been feeling. And the Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross score for the film will have at least two actual songs attached, both of them covers. First, Reznor roped the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O into a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song.” That cover now has a video, a creeped-out collage that will also serve as the movie’s title sequence.
And Reznor’s How To Destroy Angels project has also contributed a song to the soundtrack: An eerie cover of another soundtrack nugget, Bryan Ferry’s “Is Your Love Strong Enough.” Ferry’s tune already appeared in Legend, the infamous 1985 bit of Ridley Scott/Tom Cruise fantasy silliness. And really, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo should be just like Legend, except more rapey and with less unicorns. Listen to the “Is Your Love Strong Enough” cover and watch the “Immigrant Song” video below.

The soundtrack to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is out 12/9 digitally, 12/27 on triple-CD, and 2/6 in a deluxe package. It’ll be out on Reznor’s own Null Corporation in North America and Mute everywhere else.
