Nine Inch Nails, specifically Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, recently added Bird Box to the endless list of films they've scored over the past few years. The duo has now shared a 13-minute long track that they wrote for the Netflix original, but does not appear anywhere in the film.
Reznor explains that a lot of music he and Ross wrote didn't make the final cut, though they'll release all of it as a "physical offering" this spring alongside a few other bonus items. Maybe this one won't include dirt.
“OUR SCORE FOR THE FILM BIRD BOX IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IN HIGH-RESOLUTION. THIS SAME VERSION WILL APPEAR ON STREAMING SERVICES BY JAN 25TH (OR SOONER). LIKE ALL SOUNDTRACK RECORDS WE RELEASE, WE AIM FOR THESE TO PLAY LIKE ALBUMS THAT TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY AND CAN EXIST AS COMPANION PIECES TO THE FILMS AND AS THEIR OWN SEPARATE WORKS.
WE CREATED A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MUSIC AND CONCEPTUAL SOUND FOR BIRD BOX, A LOT OF WHICH NEVER MADE IT TO YOUR EARS IN THE FINAL VERSION OF THE FILM. WE’VE DECIDED TO PRESENT YOU WITH THIS VERSION OF THE SOUNDTRACK RECORD THAT REPRESENTS WHAT BIRD BOX IS TO US. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY.
FOR THOSE INTERESTED, WE WILL BE RELEASING A MORE EXPANSIVE (READ: MORE SELF-INDULGENT) PHYSICAL-ONLY OFFERING THIS SPRING THAT WILL CONTAIN AN ADDITIONAL HOUR OF MUSIC AND ARTWORK THAT COLORS FURTHER OUTSIDE THE LINES… ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!
LOTS COMING IN 2019,
Bird Box was released in November 2018 and has been making the rounds on the Internet in the form of memes, challenges and actual discussion about the film. The digital version of the soundtrack is available now.
