Exclusive: Hear 2 Terrific Tracks From The Soundtrack To Richard Ayoade's 'The Double' Starring Jesse Eisenberg

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist May 1, 2014 at 11:09AM

As you've probably already surmised by now from our coverage, we are big fans of Richard Ayoade's "The Double." When we saw the film at TIFF last year, we called it "totally bonkers, hilarious and wickedly clever." And indeed, in addition to Jesse Eisenberg's great (dual) performance, the fantastic set design, the pitch perfect control of tone and the spot on casting, one of the elements that really makes the film sing, is the soundtrack. And today we've got a nice preview of what's to come.

The Double

As you've probably already surmised by now from our coverage, we are big fans of Richard Ayoade's "The Double." When we saw the film at TIFF last year, we called it "totally bonkers, hilarious and wickedly clever." And indeed, in addition to Jesse Eisenberg's great (dual) performance, the fantastic set design, the pitch perfect control of tone and the spot on casting, one of the elements that really makes the film sing, is the soundtrack. And today we've got a nice preview of what's to come.

Andrew Hewitt might not be the first film composer to spring to mind, but he's definitely one to be keeping an ear out for. He scored Ayoade's first feature film "Submarine," but it's his work on "The Double," that really finds him kicking things up a notch. Below, you'll hear the exclusive track "A Boy Held Up By String" which is a perfect example of the percussive, moody aura Hewitt delivers for the film. But the soundtrack is also bolstered by some Quentin Tarantino worthy deep cuts of obscure pop songs, none more beautiful than "The Sun" by '70s South Korean singer Kim Jung Mi (yeah, these are deep cuts) which you can hear below too.

Listen to both below, and as a bonus, you can hear Hewitt's "The Double Theme (Version 2)" that first premiered at Thompson On Hollywood. The soundtrack is now available on iTunes, with the CD hitting stores on May 6th. The film opens in limited release on May 9th.
