Listen to 4 tracks from Trent Reznor’s ‘Gone Girl’ soundtrack


Nine Inch Nails’s Trent Reznor won an Oscar along with Atticus Ross for his work on David Fincher’s The Social Network, and following the pair’s equally impressive work on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, it’s a thrill to see Reznor being brough back to collaborate on Fincher’s latest, Gone Girl, coming out October 3.

In promotion of the film, the soundtrack by Reznor and Ross will drop September 30, and via NPR, they’ve released four tracks off the entire, 24 track Original Soundtrack album (the full tracklist is available via Pitchfork), which you can preorder now. Earlier this week on you could also hear another snippet from the soundtrack.

Though Reznor is known for his industrial, computerized rock, Reznor said in a piece with The Wall Street Journal that Fincher told him 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.”

Yep. That’s the impression I got. It goes great when perusing Amy Dunne’s Pinterest board.
