LISTEN: Soundtrack Preview For "Only Lovers Left Alive" Starring Tom Hiddleston + Tilda Swinton



Of the many pleasures to be had within Jim Jarmusch's elegant "Only Lovers Left Alive" is the excellent, moody and evocative score by.... well, none other than Jarmusch himself. That's right, the writer and director also gets behind the guitar from time to time with his band SQÜRL, and teaming with Jozef Van Wissem, they've concocted a pretty terrific set of music for the picture.

And now you get your first chance to check it out, as "The Taste Of Blood," has made its way online. It's the regular theme music that runs through the movie starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, and Anton Yelchin, as they brood and love in Detroit and Morocco. It's perhaps best described as a melodic dirge, though with some faintly Middle Eastern inflections, and it perfectly suits the continent-spanning tale of the undead. But that's not all the soundtrack provides. There is a carefully selected batch of classic soul jams, straight up rock 'n' roll, and beautiful, adventurous Middle Eastern music in the flick too. And even more, we've got the list of songs and the full version of "The Taste Of Blood", so check 'em out below.

And as for an official soundtrack release, it's coming from ATP Recordings on CD and 2xLP, and drops on February 17th. "Only Lovers Left Alive" opens on April 11th.
