Hans Zimmer's Pink Floyd cover for the Dune movie trailer

Post date:



Denis Villeneuve’s forthcoming Dune recently got its first trailer, with a surprising soundtrack: a cover of the outtro to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. A tribute to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s legendary 1970s effort to film the novel with a full Floyd soundtrack, it was crafted by Hans Zimmer, working remotely with an L.A. choir.

…he took a break from the main score to oversee the recording of the Pink Floyd cover. Working with a 32-voice Los Angeles choir, Zimmer held eight sessions with four vocalists at a time in order to maintain social distancing measures. Twelve vocalists performed the lyrics from “Eclipse,” while the remaining 20 recorded choral parts.

“He wanted to pay homage to the original, very back-phrased sound, a little spaced-out, so the vocals would not sound urgent,” choral contractor Edie Lehmann Boddicker told Variety. “There’s a kind of joy happening in the track, a lot of hopefulness. It’s not despondent, just very peaceful and sounding not of this planet.”
