The Gone Girl original motion picture soundtrack includes 24 new tracks. It also marks the third time Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have worked with David Fincher after their collaboration on 2010's The Social Network and 2011's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Each soundtrack has had its own distinct tone, with the Gone Girl music capturing the mood of a marriage on the rocks as a seemingly placid life turns twisted for a young couple living in the suburbs of Missouri, when a loving husband is accused of murder.
The inspiration for the music came from David Fincher's trip to a spa after having his back adjusted. He explains:
"I was listening to that calming, placating music and thought, 'We need to tap into this.' The movie is about the facade of the good neighbor, the good Christian, the good wife."
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross took this idea and ran with it, skating across a placid surface to create music that is at first gentle and unassuming, yet always contains a dark shadow that looms over everything. A soothing atmosphere soon turns bleak as the tracks continue to move along with a story that continues to careen out of control.
The Gone Girl soundtrack will be available for purchase and download starting September 30, with the movie in theaters three days later.
