Free EP from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have teamed together to score the soundtrack to the upcoming film, ‘The Social Network‘, directed by David Fincher (Fight Club, The Panic Room, Zodiac).

The film is tells the story about the founders of the social-networking website, Facebook. Reznor and Ross have composed and recorded the accompanying soundtrack, which will be released on Tuesday, September 28th. You may download a 5-track EP for free here.

Reznor says:

This is what Atticus and I have been working on for the last few months. We had a great time working with David Fincher on this and the film turned out excellent – something we’re very proud of. It opens in theatres Oct 1 and you should check it out.

Musically, this all came out of our secret laboratory – electronic in basis, but mostly organic sounding. Lots of experiments and emphasis on sound fraying around the edges while focusing on the proper emotional tone for the various scenes.

Regarding the purchase options, sorry about the “clunkiness” of not offering the full record digital download pre-sale (and having to visit Amazon). My agenda was to be able to offer this for the lowest possible price and this was the best way to achieve that. Amazon has been a great partner with past projects and I appreciate your understanding.
