A statement from the band, “We recorded a cover of Morrissey’s ‘Interesting Drug’ — it seems like the right soundtrack for this moment. No matter how anxious or angry you are, try to turn your passion into something good for the world. We’re in this together.“
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.

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
