PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Massive Attack all have new tracks on the
soundtrack album for the forthcoming film Batman Forever. The
album opens with U2's "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" produced
by Nellee Hooper and will be released as the first single today (June
5); it's a truly great U2 track that just makes us hunger all the
more for a new album from the boys. The other tracks on the soundtrack
are PJ Harvey's "One Time Too Many," Brandy's "Where Are You Now,"
Seal's "From A Rose," Massive Attack with Tracey Thorn performing
"The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game," Eddie Reader's "Nobody Lives
Without Love," Mazzy Star's "Tell Me Now," Offspring singing the
Damned's "Smash It Up," Nick Cave's brilliant "There Is A Light,"
Method Man's "The Rider," Michael Hutchence's "The Passenger;, The
Devlins' "Crossing The River," Sunny Day Real Estate's "8" and Flaming
Lips' "Bad Days." Director Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys,
St. Elmo's Fire, and Flatliners) takes over from Tim
Burton, the director of the last two Batman films. Val Kilmner
will put on the cape this time, inheriting it from Michael Keaton.
