The tracklisting for the follow-up to Trainspotting is a combination of heritage artists and music from the original score: Lust for Life has been remixed by the Prodigy, and Slow Slippy, a reworked version of Underworld’s Born Slippy, closes the album.
As well as tracks by the Clash, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Blondie, Queen and Run DMC, there are three songs by Edinburgh’s Mercury prize-winning trio Young Fathers, and Dad’s Best Friend by the Rubberbandits, a comedy hip-hop duo from Limerick.
Featuring some of the 90s’ most defining tracks, the original Trainspotting soundtrack was a huge success, and was released as two albums: the first came out in 1996, and a second, featuring songs from the film that didn’t make the first album, was released a year later due to popular demand. According to Official Charts Company data, the original soundtrack, which featured Primal Scream, Brian Eno, New Order and Pulp, has sold 981,815 copies to date.
The T2 soundtrack will be released on 27 January via Polydor.
