Listen to 10 Minutes of Daft Punk’s Score for TRON: LEGACY – Update: More Tracks Leaked?

     July 29, 2010


One of the coolest things about Disney’s upcoming Tron: Legacy (and there a lot of cool things about it) has been the decision to get the French electronic music duo, Daft Punk, to score the film.  We finally got a chance to hear a little bit of the score last week when the newest trailer was released and it was enough to get any Daft Punk fan a bit excited and more curious about what the finished product might sound like.  Now, thanks to a video that popped up on YouTube, we can hear a 10 minute preview of the score.  That preview and more TRON: Legacy goodness after the jump.

Update: Even more music from the film has leaked online.  Hit the jump to give them a listen.

UPDATE: While the uploader of the following tracks, alexdaft26, purports that these are definitely cuts from the album, we have no way of verifying that assertion. Via Cinemablend and The Playlist



Tron_Legacy_movie_posterWe’ve had a lot of TRON: Legacy coverage lately over here on Collider. In case if you’ve missed any of it here is a rundown:

- A write up of the TRON: Legacy Panel from Comic-Con

- Steve’s interview with Walt Disney’s President of Production, Sean Bailey, where he talks TRON: Legacy , Disney’s Future, 3D, The Black Hole, and Oblivion

- A video interview with Michael Sheen held at End of Line Club at Comic-Con

- Interviews with Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Michael Sheen

- Images and Info on the TRON: Legacy Viral Event that was held at Comic-Con

In case if you want to know more about the film, here is the official synopsis:

TRON is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (GARRETT HEDLUND), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (JEFF BRIDGES), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (OLIVIA WILDE), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

    I cant wait to buy this album. Daft Punk is one of my favorite groups on this planet. Amazing:)

  • Bill Graham

    I don't buy many soundtracks, but this will be a no-brainer.

  • Jason Pollock

    Man…that's rough. It's like being trapped in Old Navy. For awhile it sounded like something you might hear under the cutscenes from the 8-bit Ninja Gaiden (minus the inherent charm of the 8-bit Ninja Gaiden), but at the four minute mark it turned into Lady Gaga's “Just Dance” – and I had to quit. I knew this score would be the weakest aspect of the production, but that was more soulless than expected.

  • justkiddingnobutseriously

    I can understand why some might feel this way but I wouldnt go so far as to say it's soulless. I'm sure we'd appreciate the music more if they were coupled with the scenes.

    I love soundtracks, so yea, Im getting this one.

  • Aaron Sullivan

    Is this for real? I'm not feeling this much at all. Music does not match the visuals I've seen so far and it doesn't seem to match the music from the trailers much at all either. Oh, and it also doesn't match with the small snippets on the official website. I'm sort of scratching my head here. I guess it could work in some contexts?

  • Bingfutch

    It has none of the melodic impact and dramatic scope of Wendy Carlos' original score for “Tron”, which stood on its own and told the story without the film. This just sounds like music for any number of “hip” television commercials. It even seems to be all the same basic beats per minute. Nothing against Daft Punk, but a collaboration between Carlos and DP would've been the better option.

  • Kunu

    The music is fully integrated into the film. The action, edits, and cuts are all synced to the score. Listening to it out of context probably isn't ideal, but for those that are fans of electronic music (and the digital lifestyle that TRON represents) it sounds great.

  • Kunu

    After giving this a listen, this isn't the score music, it sounds more like a regular Daft Punk album (possibly inspired by the movie). I wouldn't expect any of this to play during the movie.

  • Kunu

    It's not from the TRON score. TRON is like digital-orchestrated music of sorts. This is possibly from another Daft Punk album (they make their money from the club scene).

  • Aaron Sullivan

    Looking back at the article, it's clear it's just as likely this is a silly youtube video by a deceitful fanboy as it is anything official. I really hope that's the case. :)

  • Aaron Sullivan

    Just went to the official site and played the light cycle game a little bit. Got a nice repeating loop of the awesome soundtrack I was expecting. A much better spent 10 minutes! :D

  • Kunu

    This might very well be from a new DP album, possibly a companion album to the score, I have no idea. But you're right, it wouldn't take much skill to take some existing songs and play them over the Tron image and claim it as something new.

    I have to say I'm not a fan of dance music, but the score played with the movie trailers is genius. These guys have shown that they are multi-talented musicians for sure! :)

  • djanimosity

    People are confusing the “score” with the “soundtrack” – Daft Punk is scoring the film, but also releasing a soundtrack. Remember what Prince did with the original Batman? The snippets on the official site are part of the score – do you really think Daft Punk would only release something that boring (even though it's still quite good) as their first music since 2005? These guys want to create buzz and are dance music pioneers at their core.

  • Philips_voltaire

    These short samples of scenes, are completelly developed on the same youtube user channel.
    You can find the new on:

    Scene 471, scene 505 and scene 1437 and scene 23 rocks my brain. Amazing.

  • Candide

    There is no way that this is from the Tron Soundtrack.
    When the Disney updated the Tron Legacy website last week, they actually had 6 different tracks from the soundtrack in the Light Cycle Game. Then they paired it down to the 3 tracks you can hear now if you go to the site. This page ripped the tracks before they were paired down…
    Also, there is not going to be a SCORE and then SOUNDTRACK for Tron:Legacy, just the official Score from the Movie. Not sure where the other commenter got that idea. These “Scenes” are just another one of the hundred purported “Leaks” of the score that are NOT THE REAL DEAL. I'm kind of surprised at Collider on this one. Crummy reporting if you ask me.

  • jonniechang

    this sounds like Daft Punk, but it doesn't strike me as something that matches the imagery we've seen from TRON: LEGACY. it lacks dramatic weight, it doesn't feel like it was written to match picture or action. it sounds like simplified Daft Punk-esque music, an emulation of the real deal.

    if this is the final score, color this guy disappointed.

    While searching for leaks of the Daft Punk score, I just came across this hilarious yet very well edited Tron inspired kama sutra guide. Appropriately titled SCORE with Tron-a-Sutra (NSFW) on WonderHowTo. Worth checking out if you want a good laugh or need to brush up on your game.
