The somber grandeur of Blur auteur Damon Albarn's recent solo debut, Everyday Robots, often had a cinematic feel. And so does this sad, delicate track from the Scarlett Johansson sci-fi thriller Lucy; he even sings about a relationship as if it's happening in a movie, over subtly creeping rhythmic ripples and Old Hollywood strings. It’s as pretty as it is clever.
