"I'm always trying to push myself and I try to do it with my studio albums, and now this is a new adventure, so I'm going to push myself even harder, and try to surprise people and move people with my music," M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez told us last year when we reported he was going to score Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion." "My vision is really to have a combination of very electronic moments, very M83, and sometimes merge into something more soundtrack-y." And it sounds like he's more than succeeded.

"I'm always trying to push myself and I try to do it with my studio albums, and now this is a new adventure, so I'm going to push myself even harder, and try to surprise people and move people with my music," M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez told us last year when we reported he was going to score Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion." "My vision is really to have a combination of very electronic moments, very M83, and sometimes merge into something more soundtrack-y." And it sounds like he's more than succeeded.

The first track from upcoming soundtrack has arrived and yes, it sounds like M83 and yes, that means it sounds awesome. The sci-fi flick starring Tom Cruise is already shaping up to be something pretty ambitious and it certainly has the music to match, and for M83's first blockbuster scoring outing, he's been assisted by "TRON: Uprising" and "The Raid" composer Joseph Trapanese. M83 has also cut a new song featuring Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør that will appear on the soundtrack when it's released on April 9th.

As for the movie, after a move to April 12th on IMAX, it will now hit screens in all formats as originally planned on April 19th. Turn it up -- way up -- and listen below. [Rolling Stone/Deadline]
