‘Gone Girl’ film soundtrack now available digitally

Gone Girl, the soundtrack from the motion picture, has been released digitally by Columbia Records. It is available now at all digital retailers – including Amazon – and at all streaming services. The score was composed by Academy Award-winning musicians Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and marks the duo’s third collaboration with filmmaker David Fincher, whose 20th Century Fox film Gone Girl hits theaters nationwide this Friday, October 3rd. Columbia Records will release the soundtrack physically later this fall. It will be available as a double album on 180-gram vinyl and as a two CD set.

Rolling Stone hailed the Gone Girl soundtrack as “haunting” and “sublimely uneasy.” NPR Music,which premiered the album in its entirety last week, praised the composers’ collaboration with Fincher as a “synthesis of cinema and sound that’s starting to prove as fruitful as those of Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann, Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone, or Akira Kurosawa and Toru Takemitsu” and went on to note, “Gone Girl again fits its story’s mood to perfection.”

The film, based on writer Gillian Flynn’s best selling 2012 novel of the same name, stars Academy Award-winner Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, a husband whose wife Amy’s disappearance (played by Rosamund Pike) becomes the focus of an intense media circus, and soon finds the spotlight turned on him as others suspect he may be responsible.

Reznor and Ross previously collaborated with Fincher on scores for the director’s feature films The Social Network (2010), for which they won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe in 2011, and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011), which earned them a GRAMMY.

Selections from Gone Girl (Soundtrack From The Motion Picture) can be streamed at SoundCloud.
