The band issued the following statement:
You might have heard us mention over the past few months that we’ve been in the studio. We’ve been working on music for the brand new show on Canal+ ‘Les Revenants’. The first episode airs tonight at 20:55.
We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be releasing music from the show early next year. We’ll have a strictly limited 10″ (2000 only worldwide) out on January 28th and a full OST album released 25th February on CD, LP and Digital Download via Rock Action Records. You can see artwork for the 10″ below.
Mogwai are to contribute music to a new French TV series called Les Revenants, the first episode of which is being transmitted tonight, Monday November 26th. For those of you not in France, versions of the music recorded by the five Scotsmen will be released on an EP on January 28th 2013, followed by a full album on February 25th. Mogwai are of course no strangers to the art of putting together film and music, having already composed a soundtrack to Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait. This time, though, the turbulence on the other side of the Channel isn’t at a football match, but something more unusual and creepy – Stuart Braithwaite explained it as “horrible, but not really horror.” You can watch the trailer below. Meanwhile, we spoke to John Cummings about Mogwai’s involvement in the series.
