The only thing that interests me about London 2012 is now available on iTunes
Underworld and Danny Boyle go way back. Boyle introduced the band to a mass audience by closing his second film, Trainspotting, with their previously ignored single “Born Slippy .NUXX.” They went on to work together on various stage and screen projects, the latest of which was a little something called the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics.
The official soundtrack album, Isles of Wonder, features thirty-six tracks by various artists. Underworld contributed eleven tracks, including two new releases and a wide range of remixes. There’s also quite a lot of material by High Contrast, a Welsh drum and bass DJ who’s also a frequent Underworld collaborator.
The soundtrack hit iTunes at midnight following the opening ceremonies, and a two-CD version will be released on Thursday. As you may imagine, it’s already selling remarkably well. I finally got around to buying the digital version tonight, and I look forward to starting my day with it tomorrow, and reporting back later in the week.
