August 14, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Producer and Nine Inch Nail Danny Lohner hopes to do with the Underworld soundtrack what P. Diddy did with his all-star Bad Boys II collection, on top of the charts now for four weeks in a row. Lohner tapped hard rock heroes David Bowie, former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, Filter frontman Richard Patrick, Helmet's Page Hamilton and Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante to record for the set, due September 2nd.

Bowie contributed a remix of "Bring Me to the Disco King," from his upcoming album Reality, that features Frusciante and Keenan. Keenan's own new project with Lohner, Pulcifer, offers a new song, "REV 22:20"; and Lohner teams up with Borland, A Perfect Circle's Josh Freese and Patrick on the leadoff track, "Awakening," recorded under the name the Damning Well.

Also featured on the collection are tracks from Hamilton, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Skinny Puppy, Lisa Germano and actress Milla Jovovich.

Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman star in the dark vampires and werewolves film, which will be released September 19th.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
