Listen To Chvrches "Get Away" From The Rescored Version Of Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive' Plus Check Out The Trailer

Quite simply, the soundtrack to Nicolas Winding Refn‘s “Drive” is one of the best of the past few years. Seamlessly blending Cliff Martinez‘s distinct, throbbing score with retro-future jams by Kavinsky, College, Chromatics, and Desire, the entire sonic palette helped inform the neon mood of the Ryan Gosling starring film. But what happens when you drape the movie with a bunch of random new music? Well, you’re about to find out.

BBC Radio 1‘s Zane Lowe has undertaken the task of rescoring “Drive,” with Chvrches, Foals, SBTRKT, Jon Hopkins, Laura Mvula, the 1975, Baauer, BANKS, Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, Eric Prydz, the Neighbourhood, and ZCC (aka Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro) all tapped to provide new exclusive music. A 30-second trailerwith Lowe talking all over itdoes preview a bit of what it will sound like, and, unsurprisingly, results may vary. Refn carefully crafted his film with the music inserted with laser like precision, and this effort plays it a bit looser.

If you’re curious how it all shakes out, BBC Three will air “Drive” on October 30th, with the option to switch between the Lowe-curated soundtrack and the original version. Check out the trailer below, but first hear “Get Away” by Chvrches, which appears in this project, and, in case you were wondering, has Refn’s support. No word yet if the Lowe soundtrack will get a separate release. [Pitchfork/DIY]

interesting project. entirely expect it to fail. i’d like to see some musicians follow suit. maybe do the same for 2001 or some other seminal films. the godfather musically curated by Beck? lol


Yeah, I really don’t understand why anyone would want to tamper with Drive’s OST – it’s the definition of beauty!!


What the hell is this crap?! Martinez’s score is perfect. Zane Lowe is a t**t.


A case of don’t give up the day job I suspect !!!


well that was about the most obnoxious thing that i’vev seen in a while. i hope this trend doesn’t catch on.
