I thought BBC Three was up for the chop, but thank God it isn’t as this Thursday presents a rather unique concept for cult film fans.
‘Drive’ lives up to its reputation as being the coolest movie of recent years (or ever, if you’re me) with a reboot this Thursday night at 10pm – tune in to the digital channel and you’ll witness the film with a special soundtrack curated by one of mainstream radio’s sole saviours, Zane Lowe.
Now, the original soundtrack was just as good as the film, featuring cracking tunes from Kavinsky, Desire and College, not to mention a moody neo-noir score courtesy of Cliff Martinez.
The version of the movie screened on Thursday in the UK will be rescored and feature Banks, Eric Prydz, SBTRKT, Laura Mvula and Bastille. Meanwhile, awesome electro-pop band CHVRCHES contribute a new song titled ‘Get Away’.
‘Radio 1 Rescores: Drive – Curated by Zane Lowe’ debuts on Thursday and you can check out the trailer below:
