Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Django Unchained has just been released in the US this past Christmas Day, and while UK viewers will have to wait until January 18th to see the hotly anticipated flick, a stream of the soundtrack has been released to hold those outside of the US over. It’s not just a simple stream though as it also includes commentary from Tarantino himself revealing insights into how songs came together and how they fit into the soundtrack as a whole.
At 26:05 the acclaimed director explains that the Rick Ross feature, “100 Black Coffins” was actually the first piece that came from discussions of creating brand new music from the film, and happened when Jamie Foxx flew to the BET awards to show off a trailer which was then complimented upon by Ross, who then took a flight with Foxx to the set.
The soundtrack also features James Brown, John Legend, 2Pac and Anthony Hamilton alongside work from the legendary Spaghetti Western composer Ennio Morricone (A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly).
Those in the US can purchase the soundtrack here, while the rest of us can stream it below.
