Yet more music for you from the fantastic “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack, as Nero just dropped the premiÃ¨re for “In The Past“, which is theirÂ contribution to the popular OST. AlthoughÂ “In The Past” didn’t make the cut for the 14-track album, it’s does feature on the 21-track deluxe version which you would be stupid not to purchase instead.
Dan: “We heard last summer that two of our tracks from â€˜Welcome Realityâ€™ were being used as temporary sound beds in the film. A little after that, Baz came to our studio in L.A. and we talked about writing original music for those parts of the movie. As fans of both the book and his work, we were pretty excited to get working on it.”.
Stephens: “We worked closely with Baz to write two pieces for the movie using some elements and themes from Craig Armstrongâ€™s score. We also added some of the electronic sounds weâ€™d used to other cues in the film to give some continuity to the overall score. One of the cues weâ€™d written then developed into a full original song [â€œInto the Pastâ€], with vocals from Alana. Itâ€™s based around one of the central themes of the story, that of memory and Gatsbyâ€™s drive to reshape past events.”.
“In The Past” just went live thanks to Zane Lowe‘s Radio 1 show. I really love the sound they have cultivated on this one. Enjoy the stream below:
