One of the most memorable parts of the first Trainspotting film (very weird to now have to qualify Trainspotting with a “first”) was its soundtrack. In fact, it was so extensively liked that it actually led to the release of a second soundtrack album; from Lou Reed to New Order to Blur, it gathered some of the mopiest rock-dudes of the late 20th century into one film, and then onto one (then two) albums. Now, the soundtrack for T2 Trainspotting has been revealed. The soundtrack has a couple returning artists, including Iggy Pop (back in remixed format, with the same song — “Lust for Life” — from the first film) and Underworld. Some exciting new additions include Blondie, Young Fathers (who have three songs on the soundtrack), and Queen.
Here’s the track list:
1. Iggy Pop: “Lust for Life (The Prodigy Remix)” (like above to original version) 2. High Contrast: “Shotgun Mouthwash” 3. Wolf Alice: “Silk” 4. Young Fathers: “Get Up” 5. Frankie Goes to Hollywood: “Relax” 6. Underworld /Ewen Bremner: “Eventually But” 7. Young Fathers: “Only God Knows” 8. The Rubberbandits: “Dad’s Best Friend” 9. Blondie: “Dreaming” 10. Queen: “Radio Ga Ga” 11. Run D.M.C. vs. Jason Nevis: “It’s Like That” 12. The Clash: “(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais” 13. Young Fathers: “Rain or Shine” 14. Fat White Family: “Whitest Boy on the Beach” 15. Underworld: “Slow Slippy”
The film will be released in the U.S. on March 17. Check out the album art:
