Reznor and Ross release free tracks from “The Social Network” soundtrack

leave a comment »

Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and the English producer Atticus Ross have released five tracks off the upcoming soundtrack for “The Social Network” for free online.

Included are five tracks:

1) Pieces Form the Whole

2) Eventually We Find Our Way

3) On We March

4) The Gentle Hum of Anxiety

5) Soft Trees Break the Fall

The ambient tunes are part of a 19 track album available now for download or the physical album will be available in October.

“The Social Network,” which premiers Oct. 1, is the story of how Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg created the popular social networking site and the controversy surrounding his success.

Reznor included the following message with the free download:

“This is what Atticus and I have been working on for the last few months. We had a great time working with David Fincher on this and the film turned out excellent – something we’re very proud of. It opens in theatres Oct 1 and you should check it out.

Musically, this all came out of our secret laboratory – electronic in basis, but mostly organic sounding. Lots of experiments and emphasis on sound fraying around the edges while focusing on the proper emotional tone for the various scenes.

Regarding the purchase options, sorry about the “clunkiness” of not offering the full record digital download pre-sale (and having to visit Amazon). My agenda was to be able to offer this for the lowest possible price and this was the best way to achieve that. Amazon has been a great partner with past projects and I appreciate your understanding.”
