OK Go Cover “Interesting Drug” by Morrissey

‘Trainspotting 2’ Soundtrack Revealed

The tracklisting for the upcoming ‘T2: Trainspotting‘ soundtrack has been confirmed.

After the initial trailer was released, the clip revealed that Wolf Alice’s track ‘Silk’ would be featured on the soundtrack. Now, the full list of songs have been confirmed following rumours earlier this week.

The classic ‘Lust For Life’ by Iggy Pop from the original soundtrack has been given a violent reboot courtesy of The Prodigy, while Underworld‘s ‘Born Slippy’ has been reimagined as ‘Slow Slippy’ also.

That respect for the old-school also comes by including the likes of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Blondie, Queen, Run DMC and The Clash.

As well as the previously revealed Wolf Alice, Fat White Family also bring a kick of modern indie to the fore – while Mercury winners and Scotland’s own Young Fathers have penned new track ‘Only God Knows’ among the three songs they’ve contributed.

The soundtrack will be released physically and digitally on January 27 via Polydor.

Tracklist:.

1. Iggy Pop – ‘Lust for Life’ (The Prodigy Remix)
2. High Contrast – ‘Shotgun Mouthwash’
3. Wolf Alice – ‘Silk’
4. Young Fathers – ‘Get Up’
5. Frankie Goes to Hollywood – ‘Relax’
6. Underworld /Ewen Bremner – ‘Eventually But (Spud’s Letter to Gail)’
7. Young Fathers – ‘Only God Knows’
8. The Rubberbandits – ‘Dad’s Best Friend’
9. Blondie – ‘Dreaming’
10. Queen – ‘Radio Ga Ga’
11. Run D.M.C. vs. Jason Nevis – ‘It’s Like That’
12. The Clash – ‘(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais’
13. Young Fathers – ‘Rain or Shine’
14. Fat White Family – ‘Whitest Boy on the Beach’
15. Underworld – ‘Slow Slippy’

Stephen Morris Working on Memoir Chronicling His Time in Joy Division & New Order

New Order drummer Stephen Morris is working on his own memoir after signing a book deal with Constable (an imprint of Little, Brown) and will release this autobiography in sometime in 2018. This book follows the memoirs  Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division, and Substance. Inside New Order by Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner’s, Chapter And Verse.

After dropping pretty big hints over the past few years that I was writing about my recollections of nearly four decades living a fantastic and, at times traumatic, life creating music in Joy Division and New Order, I am delighted that Little, Brown has given my writing a home. I am really excited to be working with Andreas Campomar, whose enthusiasm for developing something more than a straight rock memoir is inspiring.”-Stephen Morris
