Wolf Alice on who else should be on the ‘Trainspotting 2’ soundtrack

Hear who else should be alongside their track 'Silk' from the trailer

After featuring on the brand new trailer for ‘Trainspotting 2‘, AKA ‘T2’, Wolf Alice have revealed who else they would like to feature on new soundtrack. Check out a playlist of the selections below.

The full trailer for ‘Trainspotting 2’ or ‘T2’ was unveiled – thrilling fans by containing the core of the original cast members and bringing things up to date to 2017 with a new monologue fitting for these times – as well as Wolf Alice’s ‘Silk’ from their huge debut ‘My Love Is Cool’.

“Things have changed so much since that time,” drummer Joel Amey told NME, looking back on the original soundtrack. “Even just club culture being a factor of the first movie and now it’s like, well what clubs are you going to go to because the fucking government is closing everything down? Live music and DJ music and stuff has a whole different entity I guess.


When asked who else he’d like to see on the soundtrack, Joel replied: “If there’s a weird scene I’d love to see something by Let’s Eat Grandma on there, or if there’s a heavy scene I’m sure Foals could soundtrack something like that.”

“There’s some amazing American bands like Sunflower Bean. I guess Jamie xx could really highlight that new era of a club scene and how the sound’s changed – that could be quite cool. I imagine he could have a vital part in it. Honeyblood are a great guitar band from Scotland that I’d love to see involved somehow – they could certainly soundtrack a car chase or something definitely because they’re thrilling enough.”

He added: “It would be great to see something as visceral as Skepta and his sound find it’s way in there – even though he’s a name to drop nowadays but he really is top of his game and he would be wicked. He’s a movement as much as the first soundtrack was in his own right.”
