Trainspotting 2 Soundtrack Revealed

trainspotting24The official soundtrack for the upcoming ‘T2: Trainspotting’ film has been announced. The original Trainspotting movie (which was released in 1996) is well known for having one of the most iconic soundtracks in the history of cinema.

‘T2: Trainspotting’ is perhaps the most hotly anticipated movie of 2017. After initially being announced back in December 2015, cinema fans all around the world were pleased to hear that British filmmaker Danny Boyle would be returning to direct a sequel to his 1990s Scottish masterpiece.

Loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s novel ‘Porno’, ‘T2’ picks up 20 years after the events of ‘Trainspotting’ and follows the lives of lead characters Renton, Sick Boy, Begbie and Spud as they struggle to adjust to life in the 21st century. In mid 2016 it was announced that Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle would be reprising their roles from the original movie, and both Kelly Macdonald and James Cosmo would also be making appearances.

The film is also set to feature a special cameo performance from Irvine Welsh himself.

Take a look at any ‘Greatest Movie Soundtracks’ list, and you are almost guaranteed to find ‘Trainspotting’ somewhere towards the top end. Featuring a brilliant mixture of classic punk, disco and contemporary electronic music (at the time), the original ‘Trainspotting’ soundtrack became something of a zeitgeist of 1990s British culture.
