Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained boasts a bold, flashy theme song to match the slick gunplay from Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz. For "Unchained," James Brown and Tupac Shakur get mashed up hard, banging like Django's six-shooter as 2Pac's hook from "Untouchable" stomps over the bright, brassy funk of Brown's "The Payback." The result – mixed by Tupac's engineer Claudio Cueni – is a victorious anthem that feels like emerging from a gunfight unscathed.
Django Unchained opens December 25th, and the soundtrack is due December 18th.
