As we reported earlier this month, Sonic Youth is preparing to release its soundtrack to the French film “Simon Werner a Disparu” (aka “Lights Out”) as SYR9 in the long-running Sonic Youth Recordings series — and today the band revealed the release date, tracklist and cover art for the project.
The 12-track SYR9: Simon Werner a Disparu — Original Enregistrement Sonore will be released digitally via Midheaven.com on Jan. 25, with CD and LP (with a download code included) releases following sometime in February, according to the band’s website (see full tracklist below). The CD also comes with a bonus 13th track, “Thème d’Alice,” that also will be available as a download with the purchase of the LP.
Furthermore, when the film — which screened at the Cannes Film Festival last May — is released on DVD in France on Feb. 1, will include a five-track “bonus preview CD” featuring some of Sonic Youth’s music from the film — and judging from the tracklist provided by the band, it will feature some tracks not on the SYR release.
Check out a minute-long trailer of the film, with Sonic Youth’s new music, below.
