Underworld have written a score for Danny Boyle’s stage production of ‘Frankenstein’ at the National Theatre, which begins previews this Saturday.

The dance duo have previously contributed music to a number of Boyle’s films of course, most famously their track ‘Born Slippy’ was used in ‘Trainspotting’. More recently, they scored ‘Sunshine’.

Speaking of their fifteen years of collaborations, and their latest project together, Underworld’s Karl Hyde said: “Danny Boyle and Victor Frankenstein, what a combination – I mean, can you even imagine what he’s going to do with that? No. Neither can we! Danny feels like another member of the band. Over the years, a common language has evolved between us. Every time we step into a room together, it’s like we were never apart”.
