Listen to Skrillex’s soundtrack for Spring Breakers
After soundtracking last year’s heart-warming Wreck-It Ralph, dubstep lord and savior Skrillex turns his attention to more R-rated fare with a soundtrack to Harmony Korine’s new film, Spring Breakers. Co-composed by Cliff Martinez (Drive, Traffic), the soundtrack features a dozen or so new songs by the EDM superstar, marking his first material since since January’s Leaving EP.
Among Skrillex’s contrbutions are the chipper “Rise and Shine Little Btch”, the glitchy “With You, Friends (Long Drive)”, and the surprisingly mysterious “Bikinis & Big Booties Y’all”.
Also included are songs from Gucci Mane (who appears in the film), Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, and, adding to his vast catalog, lead actor James Franco performing as his character, Alien the white rapper.
The Spring Breakers OST is due out digitally March 12th and physically March 19th via Big Beat/Atlantic, but you can stream the entire soundtrack right now at Pitchfork.
The film, which stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens as college girls-turned-criminals, hits theaters March 29th.
