Nick Cave And Warren Ellis Share Score From Upcoming Film 'War Machine'

Tuesday 23rd May, 2017 10:45AM

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis are a prolific film scoring team, having already notched up credits for projects including Hell Or High Water, Loin des Hommes and Mars in the last two years alone - on top of their album release and touring schedule with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Most recently the dream duo have been toiling away on the score for upcoming Netflix film War Machine, which is being released this Friday and stars Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, and Topher Grace. In a joint statement, Cave and Ellis said of the project:

“Together we made a score that was both light and dark, propulsive and meditative at the same time. We developed a kind of ‘spiritual electronics’ that captured both the melancholy and the terrible absurdity of the Afghan war ... It was a great pleasure to work with David Michôd, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favorite score!”

Listen to the eponymous cut below, which closes the 19-track OST that will also see release on Friday...
