Back in 2007, Michel Gondry directed the video for Paul McCartney’s “Dance Tonight,” and it appears that the two have now collaborated again with the McCartney having reportedly done some work as a guest musician on the score for the director’s upcoming “Mood Indigo.”

According to French site RTL, McCartney came in and played bass on at least two instrumental tracks for the film, and if that’s the case then we imagine the label will have a much easier time moving copies of the soundtrack than they would have before. The score itself is by Gondry’s former Oui Oui bandmate, Étienne Charry, and it will also feature a song by popular French chanteuse France Gall.
This will be the second soundtrack of 2013 that McCartney will have contributed original music to, the other of course being Dave Grohl’s Sundance documentary “Sound City” on which the former Beatle performed alongside Grohl and Krist Novoslic on the track “Cut Me Some Slack.” No word yet on when the complete “Mood Indigo” soundtrack will drop or what else it might feature. The movie opens this spring in France and Belgium on April 24th, but is without a stateside distributor as of yet.
