Re-uniting to work on a soundtrack project, Cat’s Eyes - Faris Badwan and Rachel Zeffira – have confirmed plans for a full album of new material.
‘The Duke Of Burgundy’ is featured in the forthcoming drama of the same name, with the soundtrack album dropping on February 16th. Here’s Faris to explain more:
“We were writing for the director and the film rather than ourselves and in some ways that was sort of liberating. We had specific scenes to follow and subtle movements to draw attention to... it was very different to making a normal album. In the process, we must have watched the film hundreds of times...and we still like it. We were lucky in that the script was really great and there were some extremely memorable characters to work with."
Now the title cut has appeared online. Overlaid with the opening credits of the film, it’s a beautifully composed piece of music, reminiscent of Slowdive or even Broadcast’s more ethereal moments.
