I still dont understand how this is going to be the next Daft Punk release. Does anyone think (or know) if they have a seperate album in the works as well? Kind of lame to do a full soundtrack as your new album without anything else known in the works. Will they tour for Tron? Disney Daft Punk???

The Disney logo just does not fit in.

Prince did it for Batman (not to mention his films as well)

Lou Barlow and The Bee Gees basically did that, there were a couple other artists' songs on the soundtrack albums. I think Lou Barlow did it for Saturday Night Fever and The Bee Gees did it for Kids. Then there's things like Trent Reznor, Karen O., James Murphy but maybe you're not counting that cause it wasn't under the bands' names.

Jay-Z American Gangster although the music isn't actually in the film. Dr. Dre's The Wash should count too.

Floyd did it a few times.

Curtis Mayfield's best known work is the Superfly soundtrack. James Brown did Slaughter's Big Rip Off and Black Caesar. There are other great soul artists who did that at the time (Willie Hutch for The Mack), but I would say James Brown and Prince are really all you need to prove this is completely acceptable.

@6.15 - yes, tom waits' soundtrack to 'this ones from the heart' with crystal gale is superb

Same with Celene Dion Titanic. An understated yet brilliant piece of work.

Rumored Tron themed tour/appearances next year. Disney is doing some dance show thing called ElecTRONica at California Adventure right now. The only fail is that this isn't announced for vinyl yet, the pre-order edition is CD only. Ridiculous that collector-bait would be CD only.

I can't stand this! Wendy's score for 1982 TRON is the best, tho. Available & remastered for CD: http://www.wendycarlos.com/+tron.html

I see ADAM HOROWITZ was mentioned in the end credits on the youtube clip... as in MCA of beastie boys fame? I know he has been in film making recently, but a beastie boys/daft punk fusion may be the end of the world as we know it!

Love dropouts who demand "examples please" and then reasonable people provide about 1,000 without trying. To the original dude, how about "get some historical scope please"
