It’s finally here! No, Gone Girl — the highly anticipated film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling 2012 novel — isn’t yet in theaters, but the soundtrack, scored by Trent Reznor and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross, has been giving fans a peek into the mood behind David Fincher‘s latest film. (Reznor and Ross also scored Fincher projects The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.)
Trent Reznor Previews ‘Gone Girl’ Soundtrack
First, the pair released “The Way He Looks at Me,” and now there are three more tracks available for fans to preview: “Sugar Storm,” “Background Noise” and “Just Like You.” Find out how Fincher uses the songs in the tale about a man accused of murdering his wife beginning Oct. 3. For now, check them out below, and discover if they hit the same creepy vibe as a ghostly version of Charles Aznavour’s “She” did in the first trailer for the film.
For the soundtrack, Reznor was tasked by Fincher to “think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors. The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel.” Chilling. Listen below.
