Richard Ayoade's deliriously cinematic comedy-of-errors "The Double," adapted from Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella, doesn't hit theaters or VOD until May 9. But in the meantime, stream this track off the film's soundtrack, composed by Andrew Hewitt, exclusively on TOH!

Set in a gloomy dystopia, "The Double" stars Jesse Eisenberg as a joyless data clerk whose obsession with a beautiful coworker (Mia Wasikowska) brings him face-to-face with his far more charismatic and charming doppelganger. (Here's our TOH! review.)

Composer Andrew Hewitt, who scored Ayoade's 2010 hip feature debut "Submarine," has created a head-spinning orchestral score that perfectly captures "The Double"'s stressful, frenetic tone. The score, like the film, is brilliant and infectious. The soundtrack is available to download in full on May 6 before the film arrives May 9 via Magnolia Pictures. 

Stream the main theme below, and watch the trailer.
