Around these parts, perhaps the biggest draw when it came to Joseph Kosinski‘s debut Tron: Legacy was the score from electronica talents Daft Punk (who are likely dropping a new album this year). For the director’s next major sci-fi blockbuster, he is attempting to repeat the process and we’ve got the first listen today.
Bringing along M83′s Anthony Gonzalez, who paired with TRON: Uprising‘s Joseph Trapanese, we’ve got the single StarWaves, also featuring Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør. It’s a slow-building, synth-filled track that shows a fair share of promise for what’s to come. Check it out below via Rolling Stone for the film starring Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman and Melissa Leo, as well as the new trailer if you missed it.
Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.
Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.
Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.
Oblivion hits theaters on April 19th.
