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.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
