Howard Shore: Cosmopolis (2012)
The sparkling, not-so-manly, vampire from Twilight is doing his best (and hardest) to escape from the afore-mentioned franchise's hell so this time he works with...wait for it.....David Cronenberg! Cosmopolis is their new project together and (not surprisingly for Cronenberg), HOWARD SHORE composers. Here's some info on the upcoming score CD release, from amazon:
The soundtrack for Cosmopolis reunites composer Howard Shore and the band METRIC for another cinematic collaboration. While writing the score for David Cronenberg's film adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis, Shore conceived of a particular live sound to achieve his vision and invited METRIC to perform the score and co-write three songs. The music was recorded in November 2011 at the band's own Giant Studios in Toronto, produced by Howard Shore and METRIC guitarist Jimmy Shaw, and mixed by John O'Mahony at Liberty Studios in Toronto and Electric Lady Studios in NYC. The result is an atmospheric, urban soundscape of analog synths and layered guitars featuring the hypnotic vocals of METRIC lead singer Emily Haines. The Cosmopolis soundtrack also features Mecca by Somali Singer/Rapper K'NAAN with lyrics by the artist and Don DeLillo.
