After months of anticipation, teasers, and previews, Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo's collaborative score for David Gordon Green's new film, Prince Avalanche, is now officially out. The movie, which stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, is also available to the masses via theater showings and digital retailers (and it's pulling a respectable 80 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes). To commemorate both releases, a public mural displaying the soundtrack's cover art has been unveiled in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on the side of the Turkey's Nest Tavern across from McCarren Park. Jeremy deVine, founder of Explosions' longtime label, Temporary Residence Ltd., immortalized the creation of said art piece (originally designed by Esteban Rey) with a stirring time-lapsed video. The four-minute clip follows the three-day painting process, from color mixing to the final brush strokes, and the whole thing is scored by "Send Off," the cathartic closing number off the instrumental Prince Avalanche soundtrack. Watch the video above, and scroll down for Explosions in the Sky's fall tour dates. 

Explosions and Wingo are planning to reteam on another project: The official score for David Gordon Green's upcoming Manglehorn, a new film starring Al Pacino. Work on that collection will begin at the end of the year, with the film due for a 2014 debut.
