Hear a Seedy Excerpt From Trent Reznor’s Massage Parlor-Inspired ‘Gone Girl’ Score

Trent Reznor Atticus Ross Gone Girl David Fincher Score Preview Stream

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross made some unsettling promises about their upcoming score for David Fincher’s Gone Girl. In a Wall Street Journal article earlier this month, the duo claimed that it was inspired by “the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors” and said that the sounds eventually start to “curdle and unravel” into something even more sinister. Today, however, you can better judge for yourself. We’ve already heard a short clip of the soundtrack in a trailer released in April. But now there’s a more extended excerpt streaming now on Nine Inch Nails’ website, and it’s an appropriately seedy and unnerving melange of distant synth moans. You’ll be able to hear the full score when Gone Girl is in theaters, starting October 3.
