M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez has always wanted to hear his music played on the big screen and on April 19th, he'll finally see that dream come true with the release of Tom Cruise's sci-fi flick Oblivion. Gonzalez scored the film with TRON: Uprising composer Joseph Trapanese, while his band M83 also contributed a brand-new cut featuring Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to one of Gonzalez and Trapanese's compositions, "StarWaves," a celestial tune that expands into a chorus of all-consuming synths.

The soundtrack for Oblivion will be released on April 9th on Back Lot Records.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
