It’s officially revealed that more than just the surviving members of Nirvana and Paul McCartney will be on the forthcoming soundtrack to Dave Grohl’s documentary “Sound City.” Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, Josh Homme and more will be on “Sound City – Real to Reel,” due on March 12.
iTunes posted the tracklist to the album, which includes songs performed in the documentary and those “inspired” by the gatherings therein. I’m personally looking forward to hearing that final track, with just Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Homme and Reznor, a track called “Mantra.” The rhythm section for Rage Against the Machine — Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford — is also in the house, on top of the reunion of Pat Smear, Grohl and Krist Novoselic (Nirvana) with Paul McCartney for the now-released “Cut Me Some Slack.” The latter tune was performed at the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief earlier this week.
“Sound City” will be Dave Grohl’s directorial debut. It’s titled after the California recording studio of the same name that hosted legions of famed rock acts. The film will feature some of the unique recordings below, footage of previous recordings and interviews.
The movie will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, with a digital release on Feb. 1.
