The new Lone Ranger movie comes out this week — the first time that 80-year-old character has turned up in theaters in three decades or so — and so do two soundtrack albums, one of them the actual score from the movie (by Hans Zimmer) and the other a collection of songs that are “inspired by” the film but don’t necessarily appear in it: The Lone Ranger: Wanted. The first single released from it was a cover of Hank Williams’ “Devil’s Train,” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
