Leftfield are to debut a song from their long-awaited second album in a film by Swingers director Doug Liman.
The band, aka Neil Barnes and Paul Daley, have contributed a track called ‘Swords’ to the soundtrack of Go, a tale of a drug deal gone wrong in Los Angeles. It is the first new Leftfield track to be released since January 1996.
The soundtrack version of ‘Swords’ will be different to the one released in July on the follow-up to 1995’s ‘Leftism’. The new Leftfield album, out on Higher Ground, will also feature a collaboration with Afrika Bambaataa called ‘Afrika Shox’ which will be released in June as the band’s first new single.
‘Afrika Shox’ was written two years ago and is accompanied by a video directed by Chris Cunningham, the man responsible for Aphex Twin‘s controversial ‘Come To Daddy’ and ‘Windowlicker’ videos.
The Go movie soundtrack will be released on April 5 through Higher Ground and also features new material from No Doubt and Natalie Imbruglia.
The film opens on March 26 and features the new wave of young American actors including stars from Scream 2, Party Of Five and Dawson’s Creek.
