Nick Cave and Warren Ellis share track from new Brad Pitt Netflix movie ‘War Machine’

The film will be available on the popular on-demand streaming service on May 26.
Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have shared the title track from the forthcoming Netflix movie starring Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton – War Machine.
The new film will hit the streaming service on May 26, and tells the story of General Glenn McMahon – “a man caught up in a modern war machine that keeps on churning, seemingly to no end.” Billed as an “absurdist war story for our times”, War Machine has been written and directed by Animal Kingdom‘s David Michod.
That same day the soundtrack, which has been scored by Cave and Ellis, will also be released. You can listen to the title track via Pitchfork here. They also shared the tracklist for the new record which you can also view below.
“Together we made a score that was both light and dark, propulsive and meditative at the same time. We developed a kind of ‘spiritual electronics’ that captured both the melancholy and the terrible absurdity of the Afghan war,” Cave and Ellis said. “It was a great pleasure to work with David Michod, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favourite score!”
Pitt plays the charismatic McMahon, who takes charge of NATO forces in Afghanistan in “rockstar” fashion – only to be rumbled by a magazine expose that’s masterminded by a truth-seeking journalist (played by Swinton). Sir Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall and Will Poulter will also star in the new film.
