Published May 06, 2013Cliff Martinez previously played drums with the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Captain Beefheart, but today's music fans most likely know him for his film score work, which includes a recent team-up with Skrillex on Spring Breakers and, of course, his much-loved musical contributions to Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive. Martinez's latest project once again finds him teaming up with Winding Refn for the director's new Ryan Gosling flick Only God Forgives, and the details of that soundtrack have now been confirmed.
As Film Music Reporter [via The Playlist] points out, Only God Forgives: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be out in France on May 22 via Milan Records, with the North American release to follow closer to the film's July 19 release. Martinez factors on 16 of the 17 tracks (one song is by the Thai band PROUD). In addition to some solo cuts, the album includes feature spots from composers Gregory Tripi and Mac Quayle, singer-actress Rhatha Phongam, and actor Vithaya Pansringarm.
Martinez previously told The Playlist that Only God Forgives' score moves away from his more electronic work and was inspired by Thai country & western.
Only God Forgives will premiere this month at the Cannes Film Festival. It stars Gosling as a drug smuggler in Bankok who seeks revenge for his brother's recent death. Scroll past the tracklist to watch a trailer.
