His involvement in the project having been confirmed last July, the title track off M83’s OST to ‘Oblivion’, a new sci fi film starring Tom Cruise, has appeared online.

With vocals by Norwegian alt-pop artist (and CMU interviewee) Susanne Sundfør, ‘Oblivion’ will be released as part of the soundtrack LP on 19 Apr. The film itself, meanwhile, hits cinemas on 10 Apr.

M83’s Anthony Gonzalez, who collaborated on the score with film/theatre composer Joseph Trapanese, says this of the soundtrack project: “It involved lots of stress, lots of sweat, and lots of hard work, but in the end, the soundtrack serves the movie very well. It really is a great Hollywood soundtrack. ‘Oblivion’ is a big film with a big sound and a big orchestra, and while the soundtrack is different from my original idea, in the end I am very proud of it. I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of this journey”.
