Listen to Arcade Fire’s Score for Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’
Arcade Fire contributed to the score for Spike Jonze’s latest film, Her and an early audio impression arrives with the latest movie trailer, which can be seen above. The soundtrack is set to feature instrumental versions of Reflektor cuts "Porno" and "Supersymmetry" with the latter having been written for the film. In conversation with HitFix, Jonze explained that the band simultaneously worked on the score for his movie and Reflektor:
“Win [Butler] and I started talking about the score about two years ago, and then it kinda seemed like the record sort of informed the soundtrack and the soundtrack informed the record a little bit, and there’s like a song on [Reflektor]—the last one, ‘Supersymmetry’—that he wrote for the movie, but then it sort of became something else. It’s actually the last song in the end credits.”
The band collaborated with composer Owen Pallett on the score, and the soundtrack also features an original song by Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O. Her arrives in theaters on January 18.
