Listen: Complete Soundtrack For Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive'

Of the many pleasures to be had within Jim Jarmusch's elegant "Only Lovers Left Alive," is the excellent, moody and evocative score by....well, none other than Jarmusch himself. That's right, the writer and director also gets behind the guitar from time to time with his band Sqürl, and teaming with Jozek Van Wissem, they've concocted a pretty terrific set of music for the picture.

Of the many pleasures to be had within Jim Jarmusch's elegant "Only Lovers Left Alive" is the excellent, moody and evocative score by ... well, none other than Jarmusch himself. That's right, the writer and director also gets behind the guitar from time to time with his band Sqürl, and teaming with Jozef Van Wissem, they've concocted a pretty terrific set of music for the picture.

Now, you get your first chance to check it out, as "The Taste Of Blood" has made its way online. It's the regular theme music that runs through the movie, starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin as they brood and love in Detroit and Morocco. It's perhaps best described as a melodic dirge, though with some faintly Middle Eastern inflections, and it perfectly suits the continent-spanning tale of the undead. But that's not all the soundtrack provides—there is a carefully selected batch of classic soul jams, straight up rock 'n' roll, and beautiful, adventurous Middle Eastern music in the flick too. Better yet, we've got the list of songs and a playlist, so check 'em out below.

If you like what you hear and happen to be in France, you can can go check out Sqürl, Van Wissem and some of the soundtrack artists live in concert—full details here. As for an official soundtrack release, it's coming from ATP Recordings on CD and 2xLP, and drops on February 17th. 

"Only Lovers Left Alive" opens on April 11th. Check out full tracklisting and listen to the album below (via Dazed). U.K. poster above comes courtesy of HeyUGuys.
