Exclusive Stream: Pusher Soundtrack

Pusher (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Album Art

The film that launched Nicolas Winding Refn's career, taut drug thriller Pusher, is back in on our screens next week. The new version, produced by Refn and starring an excellent Richard Coyle, comes clad in new noughties threads and boosts some pumping new tunes, courtesy of dance titans Orbital.

We begged and pleaded - and we can be pretty persuasive* - until the nice people at Vertigo Films let us share the Hartnoll brothers' score with you. When the year's top soundtracks are sized up, this one will be in the shake-up - probably clutching a glowstick and doing the robot. Have a listen and share your impressions in the usual place.

"We were mixing our album [Wonky] at the time we were asked," remembers Paul Hartnoll when Empire talked to the duo about the score's unusual origins. "We were commuting up and down to London to Flood Studio in Willesden to mix it, so every day we had a four-hour commute. Basically we took a laptop each, had the film on our laptops and composed the film on the train, everyday."

So, did watching the hard-edged thriller on the train raise any commuters' eyebrows? "Yeah. We had to be careful as we had all these people injecting heroin and things like that, and nudey women on the train and you’re like, 'Oh shit!'".

Pusher is in UK cinemas on October 12. The Orbital soundtrack, meanwhile, will be tickling our earlobes from October 8.

* we can't.

Interesting train
To clarify, when they said they had "people injecting shit and nudey women on the train" were they referring to scenes on their laptops or actual passengers? If its the latter then thats a 4 hour commute I wouldn't mind. Hearing Orbital's soundtrack on the trailer in the cinema really drew me in, but thought is it a good enough reason to see the actual film? However, it picqued my interest to look more into the whole thing and now I'm looking forward to seeing Pusher, not just More
