Arcade Fire’s Score for ‘Her’ Finally Released

The original score for Spike Jonze’s 2013 movie Her, composed by Arcade Fire & Owen Pallett, will finally see a proper release next month. You can preorder on vinyl, cassette, or MP3. I’m assuming it will also be out on streaming services on its release date of March 19. I’ve been waiting years for this (even though it’s been available as a bootleg online this whole time).

Update: Here’s a list of several streaming/purchase options for the album.

Arcade Fire: Her soundtrack will be released

In an interview with an Australian radio station, Arcade Fire’s Win Butler said that the music on the Her movie soundtrack will see an official release in some form. Here’s what Butler said about it:

We’re just slow as a band. The music will get out there, it’s just, like, a question of if we want to sell it to people or give to people or record other songs or whatever. There are many pieces on the soundtrack that are kind of based on actual songs that we’ve never really recorded. Yeah, there’s a song called Milk and Honey and a song called Dimensions that are, like, lost great Arcade Fire songs. They are actually just things that, like, fit the world of the movie and then we kind of wrote them to the film.

That’s good news! Here’s the whole interview (they start talking about Her at 15:40):

Arcade Fire won album of the year for The Suburbs at the Grammys last night and a lot of people don’t even know what an Arcade Fire is. Including Rosie O’Donnell.
