Sneak preview of the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack…

Don’t say I hold back on the goodies.

If you head over to the Facebook page of the fantastic Toronto band Metric, you can hear a sneak preview of a song they recorded for the soundtrack of ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs The World’.

The track in question is the amazing ‘Black Sheep’. It was written during the sessions for their recent ‘Fantasies’ album and has been part of their live set of late.

I was thrilled that they agreed to record it for use in my film. It’s a monumental tune.

Here’s what Metric have to say about it.

Last year our genre smashing director friend Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) told us he was working on a new movie called โ€œScott Pilgrim vs. The Worldโ€ starring Michael Cera and asked us if weโ€™d be Interested in working with him and legendary Radiohead producer Nigel Godrlch on some music for the film. Of course, we said YES!

It just so happened we had the beginnings of a song at suited the project perfectly from our early “Fantasies” recording sessions at Bear Creek, and that song became a pivotal track in the movie, which centers around a young group of musicians.

Become a fan of METRIC on Facebook to unlock an exclusive sneak preview stream of the final version called “Black Sheep”.

    Mr. Wright,rnI am a huge Ant-man comic book fan. I have loved the Hank Pym character since childhood reading “West Coast Avengers” comics. I have always wished that he would make a big screen appearance. I would just like to say thank you for seeing Ant-man’s appeal, and being brave enough to take on a lesser known character. I have been doing my best to track progress on the film via internet and am always excited when there is fresh news. I know you are very focused on Scott Pilgrim right now (which I am looking forward to also), But, I can’t wait for you to get started with this project. Thank You again.

    I know your really busy Ed, but i'm really happy to see a new blog ๐Ÿ˜€ I will go & join the Metric party over on Facebook in a bit. I'd love to see you do one of these when the Scott Pilgrim Dvd/Bluray comes out. I've got the one QT did for the Inglourious Basterds release.

    Also really enjoyed reading all the reviews from the test screenings for SP, keeping my fingers crossed for preview screenings with Q&A's like you did with Hot Fuzz. Hope the editing is going well ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Let me just say if any one has ever said you hold back on the goodies they should be shot in the head and then someone should piss in that hole and wash out the useless brain of theirs. What other director on the planet treats their fans to as much goodies as you do. With that said… the song Rocks!

    Good song from a great band, excellent live performance.
    Not sure how they'll live up to the expections in the next years.

    I LOVE Metric. Ever since you mentioned them around pre-production & filming, I became interested in the band & decided to give them a listen. They're an AMAZING band & I'm glad you've included them on the upcoming soundtrack. Can't wait to get it!
