“The Social Network” (an unofficial account of Facebook’s early days) has got everybody interested on the strength of the industry names involved (both David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin are involved). The movie’s soundtrack has been composed by Trent Reznor (best known as the founder of industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails) and producer Atticus Ross (a close associate of Reznor).
The OST (which goes on sale digitally on Tuesday, September 28th) can now be sampled for free. Five tracks can be downloaded here, and you can also preorder the album.
The music is what you’d expect from Trent – dark, moody and very expressive. And thankfully, the OST does not include the “clean” cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” by Scala that was used on the first trailer. Phew. That was close.
