Danny Boyle’s 1996 film “Trainspotting” follows a group of heroin addicts in an economically depressed Edinburgh in the late 1980s. Based on Irvine Welsh’s novel by the same name, the film went on to become a critical and commercial hit around the globe. Besides parking controversy for its subject matter, the film also produced two acclaimed soundtracks that featured music from and inspired by the film, including Iggy Pop, Brian Eno, Primal Scream, Pulp, New Order and more.

Now, Boyle has prepped a sequel, “T2 Trainspotting,” due out early this year, based on Welsh’s sequel “Porno,” that picks up 20 years after the events of the first film. Ahead of the film’s release, the soundtrack has leaked onto Amazon UK, as reported by NME, and features music from artists young and old. (The soundtrack has been subsequently removed from the site.)

Though the trailer prominently featured the song “Silk” by Wolf Alice, the soundtrack confirms that the film will feature songs by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, The Clash, Blondie and Queen, as well as The Prodigy remix of Iggy Pop’s “Lust For Life,” the opening number to the original film.
