Back Lot Records will release the soundtrack for Oblivion, Universal Pictures’ upcoming action-adventure starring Tom Cruise, on April 9, 2013.
The Oblivion Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features new music by Anthony Gonzalez of M83 and Joseph Trapanese (TRON: Uprising, The Raid: Redemption).
The score features a hybrid of the traditional M83 electronic sound combined with sweeping orchestral elements. It has 16 score cues, along with a brand new song by M83 featuring Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfor used as the end title for the film, which will release everywhere and in all formats on Friday, April 19, 2013.
“Scoring the film was a true enjoyment,” Gonzalez says.

Oblivion’s director, Joseph Kosinski, said: “Anthony creates music that is aspirational, emotional and uniquely his own. I teamed him with Joe Trapanese , who I worked with on my first film and another phenomenal talent. Together they have created the score that I have dreamed about since I first put this story down on paper eight years ago.”
The Oblivion Experience at Viceland (401 E Cesar Chavez) will host a listening party for the album today, March 11 from 7-8 PM at SXSW in Austin, TX.
