Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross‘ score for the upcoming David Fincher film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is out now in digital formats, and it’s some great stuff if you have three hours to listen to ambient industrial music (which really shouldn’t be out of your realm of possibility). The film, which hits theaters December 21st in the US, features a title sequence complete with a cover of Led Zeppelin‘s “Immigrant Song”, featuring Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalist Karen O. Pitchfork debuted a video of this eerie sequence collage that serves as a video for the track, and you can see that above.

The cover itself is fantastic, and is exactly what a cover should be — a re-imagining of sorts in the covering artists’ own distinct style. I’m by no means a fan of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but Karen O’s vocals on this track fit quite well. It makes me want to imagine a more aggressive How To Destroy Angels EP with her behind the mic. While we’re on the subject, the soundtrack also features a cover from How To Destroy Angels, Bryan Ferry‘s “Is Your Love Strong Enough.” You can stream that after the jump.
