ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER Good Times ahead

Fresh from winning the Cannes Soundtrack Award at Cannes’ 70th anniversary celebrations this year, Oneohtrix Point Never returns with his new album Good Time Original Motion Picture Soundtrack out Friday, August 11 on Warp Records.

Rapturously received by Cannes’ film critics, Good Time is directed by Josh and Benny Safdie and stars Robert Pattinson (in a widely regarded career best performance) and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Oneohtrix Point Never’s Daniel Lopatin was in competition with the likes of Jonny Greenwood, Jed Kurzel and Ibrahim Maalouf and took home the celebrated prize. Check out the first taste of the album, The Pure and the Damned featuring Iggy Pop, below.

An original song by Oneohtrix Point Never featuring guest vocals and lyrics written by Pop, Iggy’s voice is rich with incomparable weight and wisdom on the album closer.

“About 8 years ago, we were turned onto the music of Oneohtrix Point Never,” director Josh Safdie said.
“I had always imagined Dan’s work, especially his earlier work, as soundtracks to movies that never existed.”

Lopatin adds: “I had a good feeling when I walked into their midtown office, which was more like a shrine to everything they loved – amongst which was a massive Akira print side by side with one of King of New York. We share an affection and reverence for bruised and battered stuff, and I think we both feel this urge to enshrine the history as it is now, not as it was then. On our own terms.”

The Pure and the Damned featuring Iggy Pop is out now. Oneohtrix Point Never’s new album Good Time Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out Friday, August 11.
